For the last three months, my team has a new...leader who is dedicated and honest and provides us with all the information we need to measure our success. Before, I was never given any [feedback during the year]; I was always told by my previous supervisor my job was great. The big surprise was at the end of the year when I was given what I considered a marginal rating. There were obviously improvement opportunities nobody ever made me aware of. Thank heavens this will not happen with my current team leader.
