It's not a surprise that Microsoft's performance review has been so debated in the past few years, and more recently after Vanity's Fair post on "Microsoft's Downfall".

However, what surprised is to come across some posts on how Google does its performance review. From recruiters, I knew all about the wonders that peer feedback are at Google and how things are more fair.

I did not know, though, the different side of the coin. Read it here:
