Want to make a grown man cry? Tell him he’s only so-so at his job.
According to a new study, men are more likely than women to cry after a performance review at work. 25% of men say they’ve cried after one, versus 18% of women.
Men are also more likely to storm out of their review and quit. 28% of men have quit after a bad review, versus 11% of women.
The study also found two-thirds of both employees and managers think formal performance reviews are outdated and a waste of time.
And 55% think all performance reviews should be eliminated.
