Rack Stanking: The Perils Of An Inferior System (Stack Ranking)

I came across an article on Slate this morning bemoaning the “Stack Ranking” employee rating system employed by Microsoft (and apparently pioneered by Jack Welch at GE). I’ve had some experience in companies employing a stack ranking system, or one very close to such a system and so I took to Twitter with a few of my thoughts, reproduced below.


Anyone else have experience in this sort of a work environment? Thoughts? Am I off base here?
