Retweeted by Dare Obasanjo@arcadiy @ellenchisa this should read every tech company does perf reviews based on relative performance.Stack ranking isnt just that #mybad@stevesi @ellenchisa @arcadiy great post. Agree stack ranking is a specific implementation of providing differentiated comp given a budget@stevesi @arcadiy @ellenchisa that has been my experience and that of peers outside MSFT.@ellenchisa @arcadiy stack ranking as MSFT used to practice went further by dictating quotas and sharing ranking with employees. Both bad ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ’ฉ@ellenchisa @arcadiy people at same job level get different compensation based on their performance at most tech companies.That's well known@arcadiy @ellenchisa every tech company stack ranks because they have a budget. Microsoft's mistake was in telling people their score.@arcadiy @ellenchisa applying labels to employees based on performance is the demotivator.Also people can get good reviews from bad projects@ellenchisa @arcadiy I wouldn't blame it on the stack rank.Maybe on the project, my manager or me. Stack rank is 2nd order effector at best@ellenchisa @arcadiy if this is how one of my projects went, I would expect a bad review. Been on both ends of that http://t.co/0ThvQ5sosK@arcadiy @ellenchisa my biggest takeaways where her honesty and lack of introspection. Though stackranking discourages managers from helpingKey problems with #stackranking 1. People take their review score personally 2. Managers not incentivized to help https://t.co/y70ezX1oP7Reading @ellenchisa explain why she quit Microsoft after getting a bad performance review. http://t.co/ijaGVTEFv0I just started the last episode of Daredevil.

@obrien @VentureBeat Facebook completely contradicts that statement. More importantly, Yelp isn't social unless you think Amazon is social@the_mjv @BingAds you can set a time zone at the account level.
