At Least One Person Is Not Impressed with Deloitte’s New Performance Evaluations

As you know all too well, the performance evaluation process of most accounting firms is none too pleasant.

Some might call it "frustrating," "awful," "hell," or "consistently the most humiliating aspect of my job," among other things. 

Since Deloitte isn't intentionally trying to crush employees' feelings and professional ambitions, the firm recently announced that it was transforming its performance evaluations. It's a noble goal, however, as the firm's year-end approaches, one tipster dropped us a message to say that things don't feel all that different:  

Deloitte Performance Ratings: same shit different names. There are no more numbers, but there are still five choices with names to rate you. You will never know what your snapshot says after it is filled out, but you should be conducting check ins every couple of weeks. However, the check ins are supposed to be about your strengths and not about the current project. Sounds good, except it always turns into "get this to me by X day this week."
 
This system isn't revolutionary, it's about saving time. Saving time means more time to fill with chargeable hours.  
It sounds like the spirit of the new process isn't taking off, which is to be expected. Even the Wright Brothers crashed a few times.
 
Any other Deloitte employees feeling let down or that the new system is just window dressing? Discuss your experiences.
