carrot and stick

I got my market adjustment number today, not very satisfying, and it’s partly related to last year’s performance review. I don’t think I am doing exceptionally well and I got myself exposed to some political turmoils in the project, so the upcoming is kinda expectable. Even though the manager promise another adjustment in 3 months time if I am up to his expectation, I am not too warm about this carrot. 3 months time is not very long, I think I can keep my head down and just do my work. I kinda feel bad that when I work really hard and got good review, nothing happened due to the bad economy. The credits vanished got after walking into one bomb and another stupidly. I have to learn the lesson and try to avoid making the same mistake again. We’ll see what is going to happen in 3 months, that would be more a proof for myself, just like finishing the master degree, rather than for the compensation.

One thought on “carrot and stick”

  1. Count your blessings, I don’t even have a carrot dangling in front of me. There are some people who are not lucky, and then there are some people who just get plain screwed. If it will make things better, we are still in the club 1bt.
