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? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.

Try having a mid year review where you go over current performance and goals. Mid year is also a good time re-calibrate on talent and succession planning so year end is less dreadful / surprising. We have three reviews - the initial goal setting / development planning, mid year review / calibration, and then the year end circus.

Try the “Check In” model. You can see lots of good materials shared by Adobe on HCI (Human Capital Institute) website after they got rid of traditional reviews a few years ago. I used their model and customized it for our smaller organization. We do quarterly check in conversations, no forms, plus annual goal setting, individual professional dev plans and competencies, all pieces we added on later.

For those on Conditional Green Card: My lawyers have filed for the removal of conditions (I-751) about 3 weeks ago but I haven’t received the application receipt yet which automatically extends my green card’s validity for 18 months. My current green card expires in 2 weeks. If I don’t receive the receipt by then, do I need to be worried or as long as the I-751 was filed before my card expires I’m okay?

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?

Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

What to do if I suspect I’ve been given a different pto policy from my coworkers? I accrue 10 hours of pto at the end of each month of my employment. This was a very fine detail hidden until the end of my negotiation process. I’m regretting not pushing back on it. Do you know of others at your company that have different policies than you do? I’m a start up full of highly experienced people (I’m the least) so I imagine it’s more likely to happen at a smaller firm?
