I got a bad review after a year of striving to make things better despite a useless team. For the next year I did very little but creative timesheeting and extremely ironic politically correct babble. It was a lot less stressful for me, with lots of going home at five. Just when I thought the year was a total waste, I got a "much improved" review. It took a great deal of self control not to burst into laughter. I know EXACTLY what's wrong with the economy, and it isn't the Wallies of the world.
