Mid-Year Reviews are familiar to us corporate slaves. It is that time of the year when we look back at the past six months and call out on times where we f'up, and times where we excelled on our Excel sheets. We are accordingly rewarded in classic Pavlovian style with a congratulatory email or a 'can do better' report. While mid-year reviews generally suck for me, and fill me with the level of enthusiasm that would rival Jaya Bachan's, with the idea of her husband sharing screen with Rekha,...
