    Pros

    Cons

    Politics and "checking the box" on unimportant things and processes overshadowed the actual work to be done. Review process focused too much on politics rather than actual accomplishments

    Advice to Management

    The "new" review model still incorporates stack ranking even though it is hidden from employees. Focus on accomplishments of the people as opposed to those that play the political game.
