Prepping for Your Annual Review

Eilene Zimmerman writes a Q&A-style article for The New York Times about how to get ready for your review. Start by reviewing yourself and getting a feel on your own for where you are or are not excelling. Then write down some new goals for the upcoming year.  If you are a high-performer at a big organization, mention the possibility of a raise to your boss two months in advance to get the wheels in motion in adequate time. If the review turns out poorly, ask for specific examples of where things went wrong, and ask what they would recommend to help you improve. At any rate, going into a review, one of your goals should be that there are no surprises. Good or bad, you should probably know how your own work is.
