Accounting

Staff 2, worked at 3 clients in the past busy season. Around 70% of my feedback are “Often”, 20% “Usually” and 10% “Always”. Shall I worry about being fired?

Yes, but mainly bc you’re a gold standard worry wart.

Wait I'm confused. Does your rating system compare you to people in other levels? So a "Gold Standard" staff is doing the work of a manager and not just a really good staff? That makes no sense.

S T F U. Seriously? That sounds level appropriate + no one understands WTF Leads is anyway. Um, you are f'n set. Rolling. Smiting demons and zombies with your bare hands and steely gaze. Women love you, men want to be you (I don't care what gender you actually are, I'm sticking by this).

I can’t decide what’s more of a joke - HR or LEAD

Are you sure EY1? One of my Senior got warned by HR for giving Gold Standard to another staff. HR asked “is he better than a manager?"

No need to worry OP. Those are good reviews. You’re doing everything you should be doing and then some.

All of my Dashboard is between Often and Usually, but more towards Often. Seems I am on track...

I don't think that constitutes a warning. HR has been trying to make up for the lack of guidance from the roll-out, not threaten people for giving cushy ratings.

Who invented LEAD? Partners or HR?

HR. This is how they self perpetuate their "importance" HR is leads and leads is HR. It's like the Matrix, but those terrifying death machines are better company at a bar than anyone from HR

“Often" isn’t where you should want to be so I would encourage you to have a thorough discussion with those who gave you the rating so that by the end of the last cycle you shifted the pendulum the other direction. If you don’t know why you have to ask, and the flip side it is really bad on the reviewer if they never discussed your rating before you received it.

This is what you should follow to interpret the scales. Never and Rarely should be cause for concern. Almost Always is Exceptional.

Invisalign rant: got new set of trays and attachments in different teeth in March. Went home to notice they didn’t take off 2 attachments. Took a month to get appt to take them off. A month later I notice my tooth isn’t tracking. Found out there were two other attachments that needed to come off 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ beyond annoyed right now. Not my job to check if they did their job right. Anyone else have roadblocks in their Invisalign journey?
