    Cons

    Rude employees.
    Infomal communication.
    Timing policies not employee friendly

    Advice to Management

    Review system really demotivating.
    Management clings on to poor performers by "saving" them, effecting incentives and opportunities for good performers.
    Review system cannot be quantified, managers do a poor job of judging people. A lot of effort is wasted at the end of each review cycle because the managers were not keeping a continuous track of your performance.
