If ya'll didn't know, during the day I'm a IT contractor for the Fed Govt. While this is great work sometimes it leads to frusterating situations. Case in point...
My annual Performence review was due in Sept, I didn't get it till Feb. This is part my fault because I forgot about it and didn't ask till December. A good HR department would know it needed to be done and alerted my boss but whatever. So after Feb I hound my boss to get it done so I can get my raise. We finally knock it out and he sends in the paperwork to HQ.
Now I don't work in the same building as HR and in 10 years I've never been to my company's main office. The only time I see HR people is when they come onsite to visit us.
So my paperwork is over at HQ and I hear nothing... couple weeks go by, no raise and no word on anything. So I finally email the HR dept and ask whats up. Thier response? They wanted to hold out on performance reviews because our contract is up for renewal. So I can't get my money because ya'll might not win the contract in a couple months? Even if they don't win the contract they are getting paid off the current contract. It's not like they are paying me out of the petty cash.
So now I'm a lil pissed. Granted I wouldn't have gotten much in a raise buy shyt thats still my money. Now I don't know if I should be rooting for my company to win the contract or not lol, either way I'll have a job.
