I must agree with Bill on this. I've done self-evaluations at every
captive gig I've had, regardless of the strength of the
managers. I've also worked at several companies where I had no
written job description at all and they ultimately decided that it'd
be good if we all had 'em. While it certainly could be a sign of
ineffective mgmt, I think that this request is just what it looks
like on the face of it: a self-eval and a request for information on
what Zen's desired goals may be.
