Down With Performance Reviews

Samuel Culbert, a UCLA professor of management, has a blunt message in his new book for American corporations: Get Rid of the Performance Review.

Culbert, a no-nonsense speaker, writer, teacher, and clinical psychologist, calls performance reviews "a corporate sham" and "a pretentious, bogus practice that produces absolutely nothing that any thinking executive should call a corporate plus" in an article he wrote for the Journal titled Yes, Everyone Really Does Hate Performance Reviews.
