Going by all the gratuitus butt kissing around here, it is clear Ms Beebo has intimidated you all enough to elicit this pathetic, sycophantic response. Having suffered her incessant haranguing as her neighbor on Clearwing, I am under no such illusion of her abusive nature. Between the outrageous script overload from her bar, and her drunken patrons wandering the sim in various states of inebriation and undress, I can personally vouch for her tyrannical approach to dealing with the people around her. I am sure you all would change your mind after a couple sessions of her screaming, red faced, because you had the temerity to quietly ask about one of her bar flies passed out on your front lawn in a pool of her own urine and vomit. It is high time someone stands up to her excessive bullying, and I want you to know that I fully support you if you muster the courage to do so.
Safety also includes job security... which can be threatened without being in the same room. But if it seems like they specifically meant 'intimidated' by 'slightly scared' (regional language variations and all), then I suppose that's not as worrisome.
We actually have them every quarter or after a certain number of hours spent on a specific project. I usually don't ask this director for an evaluation because too often she just never gets around to it, but this year she responded immediately (and was very complementary). For a global company with over 5000 employees there needs to be a very structured approach to ensure against office politics, favoritism, and bias. I believe that increasing HR rigor has helped me catch up on compensation. For a number of reasons, some my own fault, I believe I was lagging behind and the metrics probably caught that inequity, so I finally received a few salary bumps to bring me more in line with my job level (which was also late in coming).
