A Worry less about the actual review process, which is largely out of your control, and focus more on getting what you want. If you seek a pay raise, for example, don’t wait for the next appraisal to discuss it. Arrange a meeting with the boss to discuss this matter. Prepare evidence to support your raise request. Since your employer clearly doesn’t value the appraisal process, you might also propose other ways you can get more feedback on your performance, such as holding a post-mortem after you complete big assignments.
