We just finished up our annual rankings, and I pretty well know where I fall out--just below the top rating. We conform to a "bell" curve. So I worked my a$$ off all year long with multiple unexpected projects and reorgs not to mention getting 2 groups and 8 new people (most with attitude or morale issues) under me during the year. I know I wasn't able to put in the hours I did before I became a mom, but I still worked harder this year than I have in any job I've had. I'm really disappointed and discouraged especially knowing who the people in my area are that ranked higher. I'm wondering if it's really worth it since I end up feeling like I'm doing an average job as an employee and an average job as a mom. I just needed a pity party. Thanks for listening.
