  • It is always structured. (Libby Ross)
All comments...
  • Its relevant, to the point and honest. (Sebastian Weiss)
Team: Jonathon Larson
  • When it happens, it's always a good-natured meeting. (Gabriel Riley)
  • It's supposed to help me grow. (Shannon Duncan)
Team: Libby Ross
  • She's willing to help and knows how important it is to acknowledge other people's work. (Tegan Green)

Is there anything you don't like about the feedback?
Team: Blake Doyle
  • Lack of feedback on the communication/soft side of managerial duties. (Libby Ross)
Team: Jonathon Larson
  • The fact that there is so little of it. I know I've been here for years (stopped counting after 10) but that doesn't mean I like to just continue doing my thing. I could use more direction, especially with the new streams that I haven't been doing long. (Gabriel Riley)
  • Some comments are a bit out of the blue. (Shannon Duncan)
Team: Libby Ross
  • Some of the areas need more discussion and planning. (Eliza Anderson)
  • Everything is OK. (Heidi Hill)
Team: Sebastian Weiss
  • It's a bit too much TBH. I don't find the retrospectives and stand-ups particularly useful. I enjoyed the simplicity before the new structure was enforced. Still, much better than at my previous job. (Felipe Ball)
  • I feel like the everyday stand-up meetings are a little excessive. I'd get more work done if we didn't have them so often. (Matthew Webb)
All comments...
  • Can't say yet, everything seems fine. (Kristopher Mcgowan)
Other Sources of Feedback

Is there anyone else in your organization from whom you would appreciate feedback? Who is it?
Team: Blake Doyle
  • I'm always wondering how my team feels and whether they enjoy reporting to me. This is a new role for me so I'd like to know whether the transition from Lynn was smooth or not. (Sebastian Weiss)
  • My colleagues from the sales/marketing dept. (Libby Ross)
Team: Jonathon Larson
  • It would be useful to hear and compare feedback from someone else from time to time... (Shannon Duncan)
Team: Libby Ross
  • Not really within the company but we're often missing crucial feedback from customers. The teams who work with them often don't report issues so I only learn something didn't go according to plan when I shoot them my scheduled e-mail about their future needs. It makes us look unprofessional. (Evelyn Moss)
  • The customers! Teams often don't report enough - or maybe tell the rest of the team who are actually in the office which leaves me out of it. I've been saying for years that we should have a tool for customer satisfaction. (Tommy Hart)
All comments...
  • I closely cooperate with the marketing team so I'd like to know whether they're happy with the way things are at the moment. (Tegan Green)
  • Not really. (Eliza Anderson)
Team: Sebastian Weiss
  • Marketing and Sales departments - we often cooperate but they are just quick exchanges. (Tyler Chapman)
  • The users. We should talk more with the sales guys who are in touch with our clients. (Declan Hawkins)
All comments...
  • It's enough as is. (Felipe Ball)
  • Not really. (Matthew Webb)
  • I don't know yet. (Elsie Byrne)

Form of Negative Feedback

How do you feel when you receive negative feedback from your supervisor?
