    If seniority is the criteria for performance appraisal then give work as per junior only.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Reliance Industries

    Pros

    Starting Salary is good but growth is as per seniority.
    They give chance to young engineers in new coming projects

    Cons

    Bad management in terms of recognizing good hard working employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am working in plant commissioning since last 1.5years, my boss is fully impressed with my work also and he keeps on adding responsibilities also. I am having just 2years experience but i feel i am at good position to take all responsibilities and performing well also. But at the end of year while giving appraisal my boss tells to me age wise 3group were made it seems, for <2years=G, <2-5>= VG and top most = Excl,
    My only one question to management is, if you give grade as per age then give work as per age only and expect as per age only, don't expect if i or someone else is young, enthusiastic then he will deliver best.

    I am demotivated completely at end of year.
