Agent Jackson and JP Fairfield are up in arms about that horrible performance review process.

Source article: Accenture getting rid of performance reviews http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-leadership/wp/2015/07/21/in-big-move-accenture-will-get-rid-of-annual-performance-reviews-and-rankings/

Corporate:
- Would you rather have one review at the end of the year, or get timely feedback on an ongoing basis?
- "Deloitte is also experimenting with using only four simple questions in its reviews, two of which simply require yes or no answers." Do you prefer this, or longer questions with open ended answers?
- "Employees that do best in performance management systems tend to be the employees that are the most narcissistic and self-promoting.". Do you agree with this statement?

Geeky:
- give a review of the last book that you read
- give a review of the last movie that you saw
- give a review of the last TV show that you watched
