10 Dumbest Salary Review Comments

“… real-life comments made during real-life salary reviews:

10. ‘Yes, I know you are my best employee and you train all our new employees.  However, I don’t see how that qualifies you for a raise.’

9. ‘That’s right, no raise this year. Maybe next year when you come off that high horse, you’ll get my coffee when I ask you to.’

8. ‘No, I’m not going to send your staff off for training. Those idiots have no idea what they’re doing!’

7. ‘No, we don’t promote family members first. It’s just coincidence.’

6. ‘I’ve got great news. You managed to avoid a salary decrease.’

5. ‘Before you came to my department, you were such a shining star–full of new ideas and enthusiasm. What happened to you?’

4. ‘I don’t care if you worked nights and weekends to meet an impossible deadline.  Around here, hard work doesn’t count, only results.’

3. ‘I don’t know why you are complaining about the small raise. Your wife is working and I know that with both of your salaries, you guys make more than me.’

2. ‘I’m very disappointed in your communication skills. Not once during the year did you ask me to review your shortcomings. Now I’m forced to rate you poorly in all those categories.’

1. ‘This is a salary review. Let’s not focus on the money.'”
