Nobody forgets their first employee evaluation. Here are eight critical lessons I learned from my worst – and first – job review.
“Your place or mine?”
That was the question asked as to where I wanted my first employee evaluation of my career. Now get your head out of the gutter.
It was ten months into the start of my career at American Management Systems (now CGI), and my assigned career advisor told me the time of my first employee evaluation was approaching.
When she asked the question of “your place or mine” she meant, DC (my place) or NYC (her place) offices.
At 23 and although I had flown there almost 100 times in 10 months, I chose her place – One Chase Manhattan Plaza in NYC. We picked a date and arranged lunch at the Windows on the World at the World Trade Center.
