Hi all,

Just wondering. Have you ever thought about updating your boss on what you've been working on, for example once a month sending an email summarizing deals and projects you are on. I feel like it would only aid them during performance review, but on the other hand, they might not really care. In my group, I directly work with VPs and sometimes MD , no associates in between.

    I'm guessing your boss knows what you're working on because that is their job. It's a good idea to keep track of projects yourself though for interviewing purposes. We are also required to submit a form that details our project work every six months before our performance review

    Good advice IP

    I get a feeling sometimes that he's so busy that he doesn't have time to follow on what i'm doing except if it's something for him. That get's me a bit concerned about annual performance as bulk of work is for other people who might give him feedback every 6 months, but it will be their view not mine. Basically, I just feel a summary email would be helpful, but since it sounds like an unconventional practice, I'm not sure if it's a good idea.

    Do what you want not what you can!

    Then send him an update a month before your review. Every month seems too often to me
