I haven;t worked in a company in 25 years that didn't have
some kind of formal evaluation process, I think it's become
routine in the modern work environment, if only to provide
documentation in the event someone sues because they
felt they were dismissed or passed over for promotion

Done correctly, evaluations give employees and employers
some direction in the way jobs are being performed and
managed. Done incorrectly, they're just BS designed to
support whatever conclusion the company or manager have
come to based on motives other than real performance.

What are your thoughts about the frequency and uses of
employee performance evaluations? At my current job I
have to endure this every year, and I was wondering
how common such evaluations are. Are they more common
in software companies than others? Do they seem to be
more common at higher-paying jobs or does the pay rate
not matter? Are they more common among companies in
some parts of the country than other?
