This one was only a mid-term appraisal, so no real heavy weight things to be said really. It’s quite hard to focus on the next six months, when you have no idea when the current project is going to be completed (we are in a holding pattern while the company fix the “bugs” in their product), and you know you are going to disappear off in September (yeah paternity leave).
So I talked about working from home (new baby will bring new working life? I hope), and VPNs and stuff like that.
Also it’s always nice to know your not alone, when it comes to management checking up on your working life, although as I said we struggle to come up with even vague objectives, never mind commitments.
