25 percent of men have cried after a harsh review from their boss, versus 18 percent of women.

Men were also more likely than their female counterparts to have looked for another job or quit after a review. What's more, four in 10 workers would switch jobs to a company that didn't have formal evaluations. Instead, four in five want feedback in the moment, rather than months down the road.

However, worker bees, you'll be happy to know your boss hates reviews too!

On average, managers spend two full work days prepping for each interview, which is why two in three wish their company would change its current review process as they find them time-consuming and unproductive; especially since nearly 40 percent of workers forget what was said.

No matter if you're a hard worker or not, 61 percent feel their manager plays favorites anyway, so maybe marking your boss's birthday in your calendar isn't such a bad idea.
