How do you pass a performance review when you have no idea what the standards are? This is the question on the minds of associates at Fulbright & Jaworski, who begin undergoing just such a review this week. The stakes are high – Fulbright has moved to a performance based compensation system. Sorry, make that a “competency-based advancement program”, whatever that means exactly.
Associates at Fulbright have already weathered one round of layoffs this year. We reported on cuts made in late July/early August. Will these performance reviews lead to further reductions?
