On each project we submit drafts for peer review. Whenever one particular colleague of mine performs a review of my work, she always returns it with no comments. I always get comments from everyone else. This leads me to suspect that she is not reviewing it and simply billing time to the project.
I work on engineering problems that provide drinking water to communities - I rely on an effective review process to catch occasional errors and identify potential improvements in my work.
How should I address this suspicion, either directly with my co-worker or with my manager (or someone else)?
In the past I've:
- Mentioned to my manager that I consistently get no comments from this one individual
- Mentioned to my co-worker that other reviewers consistently have feedback for me and would appreciate feedback from her
