Two months ago ("January"), I asked my manager regarding my development to which was left with open-ended answers (Read: Manager does not develop employees). Coincidentally, it was announced that all employees from the Offshore Team, including me, will be moved to a new "Independent" organization ("Org X"), effective next month ("February").
Upon learning this, I immediately emailed my Onshore Manager ("MM"), asking for a salary and/or performance appraisal. After numerous follow-ups, my Manager finally responded a month later ("March"):
"Since you're already under Org X, they will be the one to give you your appraisal."
But since the new Director ("CC") in Org X is a new employee and doesn't really know who I am and what I do / have done, I asked MM for an endorsement to him instead, to which he responded:
"I should not give them an endorsement, CC should ask an endorsement from me."
Isn't it normal practice to provide an endorsement to my new Manager from my old Manager? It seems to me its just an excuse to give an endorsement. What can i do to get an appraisal?
Just some notes to consider:
- The two Managers MM and CC aren't communicating for some reason.
- CC and MM are situated in different regions in the world (CC is in the same country as I am).
