out to PAer (#1)

PA haven't even managed to sort out mid year feedback let alone the "thanks but no pay rise" communications.

What kind of "high performing" organisation starts giving "mid year" feedback in month 8?

are you serious? they are letting people go with almost statutory minimum and you think they're going to give you a pay rise?

PAer to nonameleft (#4)

I got rated a 4 at full year, and got 10% then - why should I have to pay for all the dead wood 1 - 3s?

Business still goes on you know - we need to pay our top performers well if the company is going to come through this stronger

Principles on the pad to PAer (#5)

Yeah, get rid of everyone graded 1 to 3 - it's fair and objective. That'll leave the best backstabbers and brownnosers to shaft each other.

PAer - I think you'll find your deadwood colleagues are paying for you rather than the other way round. Shall we "catch up over coffee", pal?

Another PAer to Principles on the pad (#6)

PAer - 3 is a perfectly acceptable score to get. And before the usual torrent of rubbish starts I got a 4 and a payrise last year.

Me too to Another PAer (#7)

3 is fine if you are new in grade. If you've been there for more than a year and you're still only getting a 3 then it is cr*p.

Why should pay rises for 4s be subsidised by lard asses 3s?

Anon to Me too (#8)

The problem with assessments is that they are subjective. You can be doing a great job, but if you happen to be 'competing' with loudmouth colleagues who constantly blow their own trumpet but fail to deliver (whilst covering their tracks and moving on before their reputation is tarnished) then you can be at a disadvantage.

Horse manure

You are either in the top 10% of your grade, and deserve a pay rise, or you are not.

Our partners are able to spot bull cr*ppers like you a mile off

So you think that assessments are always completely objective and fair, that politics never factors into it, and that if you just do a good honest job to a good standard then this will inevitably by noted on your record and you'll be fairly rewarded and promoted as you deserve?

This is why PA is a world class top tier consultancy.

"world class top tier consultancy".

Ah priceless, you must be headlining at the Edinburgh Festival this year! Thank you most sincerely for the best belly laugh I've had for many years. A bright future awaits you in the entertainment sector.

Looks like the Corporate drones are doing their best to turn this debate around. Keep up the good work.

amazing how many strong supporters of PA have pop-out around the forum in the last couple of days... as they get closer to "please pick up your stuff, hand over your pass and follow the security guy" day.
