How does amazon evaluate performance of engineers ? Is it yearly, quarterly or monthly ? I hear a lot about pip at amazon, any idea what percentage of people get piped ?

      Do that pay attention to your work or is it random like at IBM

      Managers at IBM just randomly give out good and bad reviews on a cycle.

      Last year I didn’t do much and got a glowing review and a promotion.

      This year I’m more productive then I’ve ever been and my manager is “preparing me” for a bad review.

      I’ll be gone long before the yearly review but it’s clear it’s just my turn to get the bad review. Total waste of everybodies time

    Reviews are annual. You go on a development plan before a PIP. If you get on a PIP at Amazon, plan to leave. There is almost no way to claw your way out of that hole.
