The Core Principles Behind Writing Great Performance Review Feedback

  • Don't procrastinate writing performance review feedback, especially for your peers! It's such a intimate, powerful thing, and if you truly enjoy working with your peers, they deserve meaty, thoughtful feedback from you.
  • Keep it organized
    • Have clear sections. If your company has performance review axes, these can usually be used as your sections.
    • Use bullet points. People hate reading essays and paragraphs.
  • Be concise: Use your word count efficiently and avoid repeating yourself.
  • A lot of resume feedback applies to performance review as well. Use strong verbs, show the impact, and "Show, don't tell".
