1. Lemme add another one to the mix, b/c this just happened to me and I'm still fucking heated about it!

Y'all, this is required reading so this doesn't happen to you:

How my employer cheated me out of my $13,000 bonus

*For the record: No, idgaf I'm making this public
2. So, earlier this year, we had our annual performance review, and I'll get straight to it:

I was given a score so low, that it disqualified me from receiving my bonus

Mind you, the previous PM that gave me the low score was/IS a shitty-ass PM, but I digress
3. During said review, I was given a check list on what I needed to ✌🏿improve upon✌🏿 that we'll revisit in April (this month)

We just had that "Improvement" review this week; lo & behold, my reviews came back GREAT

So, y'all are probably asking, "what's the problem?"

THIS is…
4. I didn't change jack shit

My "completing my assigned tasks (quickly, mind you) despite THEIR piss-poor onboarding" was the same

My "problem-solving to fix THEIR fuck-ups" was the same

My "working extra hours after-hours into the morning during MY off-time" was the same
5. So, funny how pre-performance review, I did so ✌🏿poorly✌🏿 that it warranted a pitiful score that stripped me of $13,000

But post-review, keeping EVERYTHING the same, it's great fucking work😒

But here's another cup of tea to sip on…
6. I've had issues with this previous PM & her targeted behavior; so much so, that it warranted me to report her to HR due to what EVIDENCE CLEARLY SHOWED was retaliatory behavior

Needless to say, HR came back w/, "no malicious behavior found," b/c of fucking course, they did😒
7. But y'all expect me to believe that my work ethic that's deemed "great" today was so ✌🏿problematic ✌🏿 then, worthy of stripping me of my bonus

Y'all REALLY want me to think this ain't a form of retaliation

I'ma let y'all keep thinking I'm dumb while I make these next moves😒
8. And if y'all see this type of behavior in your workplace, start making moves

If they're disrespecting you now, they're gonna keep disrespecting you as long as you let 'em

You deserve better than THAT
You deserve better than THEM

...and they need YOU more than you need THEM
