W1: 360-degree performance review
« on: September 27, 2013, 11:28:44 am »
A 360-degree performance review is a process that gathers feedback from a review panel of between 8 and 12 people. The panel includes coworkers, supervisors, team members, subordinates, and even customers. The idea is to get as much frank feedback from as many perspectives as possible. About two-thirds of all large U.S. companies use them. The downside of 360-degree reviews is they involve a great deal more work for both the employee and manager. Also, since the evaluations are anonymous, those with an ax to grind can use these evaluations to even scores.
