I’m posting anonymously given the personal nature of this question. To frame this issue, I am a member of management and have been in my current role for 2 years working with the same boss.
I sat down with my boss to do our annual performance review (though it may be worth mentioning that we interact on a daily basis, so he provides coaching throughout the year).
I received great feedback about my contribution and overall performance but was only rated “meets expectations” in two of the three categories (the final section, I scored in the “exceeds expectations”).
I am challenged with the “meets expectations” assessment, because I routinely go above and beyond. When I relayed this, with supporting examples, in a non-argumentative, non-confrontational tone, his feedback was that “meeting expectations” was excellent but if I preferred, we could change both categories to “exceeds expectations” and he would happily sign off on it.
His also indicated that this performance review didn’t matter and I would still be eligible for promotion/salary increase regardless of whether I was ranked in the former or latter categories, but that if I wanted to amend the review, he would support me.
Now the ball is in my court and I’m not sure what to do.
