Unexceptional Performance

Samuel Culbert writes that companies should do away with regularly scheduled performance reviews because they are "fraudulent" and reinforce an employee's feelings of being dominated.

Samuel Culbert writes that it’s time for companies to do away with performance reviews. “Everybody does it, and almost everyone who’s evaluated hates it.
