    I love my paycheck. That's the only reason I am here. It's business; nothing personal

      I think that’s an unreasonable interpretation. A system that guarantees a certain percent of employees will get low ratings/pip no matter their performance is worse than a system that doesn’t have those restrictions.

      Jeef Besus, you’re talking about a forced curve. There’s still ranking involved, but maybe not stack? Is a forced curve a required component of stack ranking?

      If not, is every performance evaluation system where you decide who gets more or less money a stack ranking system?

      The media isn't "always" wrong, and he isn't right all the time, but Trump is right a lot more than they will ever let you know.

      the media lies a lot anyway, both sides(more clicks =more money), always take it with a grain of salt

    Whether they use the term stack ranking or not doesn't matter.

    if the result of their process is anything like Microsoft at the height of their power, the results will not be good long-term.

      Microsoft’s problem WAS Steve Ballmer, not any particular performance evaluation system. It’s arguably worse now - it’s just perfectly arbitrary, and there’s no longer any pretense that your self-assessment matters at all.

      Read the article. I would argue that "perfectly arbitrary" is preferable to their previous culture that pitted the employees against each other.

      At least a completely random inquision has has the effect of generating a sense of comraderie 😂

    As an ex FB employee I can confirm that this is true. Clearly you are still drinking the kool aid from the fire hose.
