Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system?

Do any managers do more than just manage and lead the team?
Currently I manage the team, manage accounting, handle HR, handle marketing such as documents and emails, provide all of the technical support, and sell.

I felt humiliated.
Looking to promote into a leadership title leading data analysts making $70-$90k a year. What would be the expected salary?
No autonomy in HR. Dept of 3. Top HR is myself and Talent “Head”. Both of us report into CFO. Everything I and Head of Talent do that has to do with money (and just about everything else) We have to get “approval” from CFO. I mean things like whether I write someone up to whether I can pay out 3 earned vacation days to a term employee who took took the time right before they termed BUT worked. So, airing on side of caution, I paid it out without seeking approval. How is it for you?
