First day of work in the brand new year started off with the annual staff evaluation session.
This time, I did my appraisal with another colleague of mine (person that I am going to report to) since my manager will be leaving next week.
(Which brings me the question, why ? I mean I don't really work closely with them. Will this be a little risky ?)
The personal-performance evaluation (whereby I graded myself from scale 1 - 5) went quite well. The brief session, about 30 minutes, ended with the colleague telling me why the management decided to hold back my promotion.
1. They don't want me to perceive the promotion as something to just "fill the manager post" in a way just to make me happy so don't I won't tender my resignation right after my manager demises.
2. They felt that I need to learn more stuff from a senior person. This would means, learning some other part of my job scope which certainly I haven't been able to do so the past 2 years. As to find a "technical" well-versed person in the industry requires time & more money.
So, the second reason seems to bring justice - that's according to them.
Oh well, personally where/how/when I want to progress in terms of career growth, I have already plotted out the timeline.
So we'll just work closely with the timeline, and see the results when the deadline meets.
