Would I be in anyway disadvantaged in the ranking exercise and doomed to a D grade just because I am the newest? I was informed that to rank me above any of the old birds would require strong justification, and that a D grade had to go to someone.

I felt strongly about this because I have put in a lot of blood sweat and tears for the year, taking on additional 24/7 responsibilities that the my colleagues do not have to. I have done well in my work, and adapted very quickly. Our team stays back later than the others due to our portfolios, and with a certain amount of pride, we dare say we churn out much better work than the other teams in our dept.

I would be greatly discouraged if I were to be given a D just because the steamroller adheres to some informal guideline to give the "newest" or "less-than-a-year" the lowest grade.

For your views please.
the truth is the hardest worker doesnt get the most credit, the one who can suck up to the boss does.
