At a previous company, in an attempt to protect against personal bias
on the part of managers, half of your evaluation came from your
manager's assessment of your performance in various areas, and half
from a project that was agreed-upon by the employee and the manager,
and that included a presentation to the rest of the group. My
presentation was enthusiastically received and met all the criteria on
which my manager and I had agreed. But she gave me a 40 on it instead
of a 50 because "After all, no project is ever going to be perfect." So
much for trying to create solely objective criteria!
