Comment on mid-year review?

I had my mid-year review and I was told how well I was doing and what projects I could look forward to working on. I had received many positive comments on my performance. My boss had her mid-year review with her boss where they go over all the mid-year reviews for the department and then she called me back into her office to sign my mid-year review. It appears he had a different take on my performance. He told her that he had received negative comments about my performance from other members of the company main office. He also said there was the perception that I was not pulling my weight, even though my performance numbers show the reverse it is true but in the new corporate culture perception appears to be more important. I ask for more details about the negative comments so I would have something to work on but I was told that was all he had to say on the subject. My boss could not offer any guidance on how to interpret this. The only thing she could say was she hated to be the bearer of bad news. I wanted to ask what others thought of these comments.

    Well, you should be able to have access to some details of the comments - how else can you improve? Ask again, tell her you are concerned about the perception and you want to make it clear you want everyone to see you for the hard worker you are. Then draw up some sort of improvement plan - if it is communication you are lacking, then make a plan to communicate more so all are informed.

    good luck

    I continuously hated comments. It grow to be generic for me to get comments such as you have, the place each and every thing different than one merchandise grow to be sturdy, then I walked away feeling like rubbish over the single merchandise. area of bosses jobs are to get you to advance. you understand your concern suited. If the remark grow to be valid, attempt to advance. If no longer, talk alongside with your boss or ask for rationalization.
