Today I had mine, even though I switched jobs only 5 months ago. It really seemed a little silly. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the feedback on how I’m catching on to the job compared to the expectations, in terms of knowing where I should be, but it’s not really fair for someone to evaluate me based on 5 months of work, when I’m still really learning the job.
That being said, it was a good review, so at least I can take away that I’m picking things up as well, or better, than folks expected me too, so I guess I should just continue to do that.
Still, it’s hard to take much away from an evaluation for a job I’m really still learning. It could have maybe waited, but that’s the policy, so that’s the way it goes. 🙂
