I recently had a performance review with my manager and it took me completely by surprise and wasn't based on fact or understanding of me or my capabilities. My manager is new (6 months) and we've never had any 1 on 1 discussions. He literally does not know me. His review was based on generalities one might expect of a new manager (me) but lacked any substance. Comments to the effect of "he is new and learning and will progress with time." The review was overall very negative. I took real issue with nearly all of what he said. What he listed strengths I would have listed as weakness and vice versa. I walked away from the meeting only to return, get with HR and confront him. He was unable to cite any examples of poor performance, only spouting the same generalities. Our relationship is ruined and sadly, HR sides with him and, since he's been a VP for years, assumes he's an effective manager. He's a poor leader in my estimation and his total lack of interest in me or my development is shocking. I have other job offers currently but, would really hate to leave my role as I love my team. What should I do? Any advice is appreciated!
