I am a Janet sized FLOP!

What is a Janet sized flop?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well, I did my appraisal today...which is less of the praise and more on comments. I would want to take it positively but I wasn't thinking. I can't think. Other than the fact that they are confirming me as a staff, most of the attributes wasnt meeting expectations.

Apparently my boss tried to explain to me that alot of things are under expectations but she can't put it that way or management will ask why they should confirm me as a staff when I am under performing. Critique includes that I don't understand the brands, consumers and category and doesn't challenge status quo to make things better. I don't identify new oppurtunity for the agency, no contribution to award winning, making client and brand famous. This part is very important apparently in my future objective.

But the part that make me go ape like Janet is where I did not demostrates unyielding passion, enthusiasm and contributes above and beyond job scope.

I am just too tired to argue and got the appraisal meeting done and over with. There's no recommendation for salary increment, naturally. As I am doing my survey tabulation, it really angers me when I know who is earning what figure. I am sure they are good at their job (some aren't) but compared to them, I am earning minging figures and work more.

I guess I am just a Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Queen.

Well, unless what she says is true (and only you will know), do NOT get demotivated... It is their job, during appraisal time, to put our egos down and make us look real bad... Then they will expect us to work harder, longer hours etc... Because they had made us think that we are bad and the company is doing us a BIG favour by allowing us to stay on...

As long as you have the passion and the drive, just stay motivated and do your best! :)

try to see it positively. she must believe that you DO HAVE potential to do better; if not why would she bother to waste the few minutes to speak to you.

sorry, i haven't been keeping in touch. OMG... that bitch boss of yours. you're the living embodiment of advertising. You pioneered the finer art of neil-ism. don't take heart the comments. prove them wrong or jack their tyres.

Tough luck. What a tall order for someone to be confirmed. You're most passionate ad guy I know, but you're the only ad guy I know. :D.
But I know you'll rise above that shitty meeting. My appraisal's coming soon too...
