I have a ten plus year web producer with our company and "knows it all" and let us within the department know that. The person is a solid performer however, emotes in cubeville so others hear her and attacks people on email. The person even challenged my role as department head in upward feedback, even though this was anonymous HR, my boss and I know it was this person.
HR did suggest to me she take an on line or similar course if available on proper corporate communications via email.
When I came in a year ago, I promoted her to a manager and gave her one direct to manage. That person left the firm for relocation reasons though it was reported to me they were not happy reporting to this person.
As her review is coming up next week, I was planning to give her our web-based calendaring system to manage and see how she does, my boss think this is a good idea as well. That said, the series indicated “behaviors” will be the judge of how well she manages this task and others.
As I do not trust this person, especially since she talks about me behind my back and via corporate communications I have mixed emotions about giving her “any” responsibilities.
Just general thoughts and input appreciated
