Yeah, the only thing I care about (and can't see) is people's responses to my promotion-readiness

I thought I was doing well, got very good feedback on last project, partner wrote email to my counselor saying I did great...and now I'm bottom 15% of scatterplot because of my first project

I cannot think of a worse way to quantify performance than using a scatter plot with values based on subjective and non-normalized human opinion. It was predictable from day one that a first quadrant arrow pattern would appear. Meanwhile, people that probably got true and fair assessments get boned. The real culprit is not the scatter plot but the forced "bell curve" of rating distribution.

I know. So the scatterplot release has told me nothing I actually want to know. Oh well

Do you guys actually think your position in the scatter plot is the be all end all for year end? If you're super low yeah there's probably an issue, but from what I've seen/heard the data is just used as a sniff test to see if there is anything super wrong or super right. If you fall somewhere in the middle, your ranking within the curve is adjusted during the PPD panel conversations

And that isn't shared with you

But why would they take into account if you are a new hire or not. That's how people show they are or are not ready for promotion. People that have been at a level longer should be doin better than someone that has been there for 5 months. Scatterplots compare you to everyone at your level regardsss of when you started that's the whole point

like

This is not a guarantee on your year end score. Counselors are asked to do due diligence to get the data behind the ratings.

like

Well being on the lower end of the scatterplot doesn't mean you can't get a good rating, it likely means that the panel will spend more time looking into the details to see why there was a discrepancy on the first project

I feel like we should be compared to our start class, myself a few other October starts are flipping the fuck out and it's ruining our self esteem, confidence, and motivation

Not a bad point D1. Also, how do you correct for rater bias? I wonder how open the firm is to changes

@PwC1 3 is average, something like 65% of people. 2 and 1 are above average, maybe 15% and 5%? My percentages might be a little off but that's roughly how it goes
