The process of Annual Reviews always seems to be a painful one. Most find it excruciatingly difficult to write one. Is self-flagellation your response? Feeling inadequate about your ability to “leverage the institution”? For those doing the reviews, do you find it even harder to read a number of modest self-reflections? So, How do you solve a problem like Maria’s?
Learn from the “best and the brightest” and “benchmark”, eh?
Samples of four Annual Review self-reports from Goldman Sachs are available from the Senate Hearings (http://hsgac.senate.gov/public/_files/Financial_Crisis/042710Exhibits.pdf)
Gosh, would it not be more fun to read reports like this every year?
