Working the Performance Review System as a Senior [Software] Engineer

1. Stop worrying so much already!

2. Stop expecting every review to be your best ever!

3. Stop expecting people to tell you what to do!

4. Trust what you know!

5. Impact those around you and be impacted!

6. Think about your output like you would a portfolio!

7. Don’t sweat other people’s success!
