- You listened to your manager offer vague feedback on things that happened months ago.
- You sat in that uncomfortable chair as they used traditional company lingo like “excellence” and “quality” when talking about your goals for the next year.
- You don’t really remember what was said, mainly because you spent most of the time staring at the wall behind your manager’s head.
- You thought it was painful when you listened to it, but it is mind numbing to give them. Over and over and over again.
- You felt bad for the poor soul sitting in your faded office chair on the other side of your desk.
- You desperately want to say “I KNOW THIS IS DUMB!” and burst into tears with them.
