What is a "performance review"?
In regards of performance reviews, a performance review is an evaluation of your performance in your job. A performance review is usually conducted by your supervisor or manager, at 3 months, 6 months or 12 months, depending on what your companies H.R. policies are. In a performance review you will usually sit down with your managers, they will give you candid feedback about your performance in a number of different areas. Therefore a performance review may cover tasks that you've been assigned to do, how well you take charge, how you take responsibility and to how well you get along with people you work with. Most of the time, your salary increase will be based upon how well you do in this performance review.
