I am a dev in a big tech company.
My team has another developer, and we're managed by the director directly because there isn't a direct manager available.
So basically we're a team of two devs, that's it.
We were assigned to do two important projects (let's call them project A, and project B) in the period of 9 months.
We worked hard since September last year and only recently we finished the two projects. Sadly we can't see an impact because of Corona so very few users.
The other dev and me had never worked together before and we had lots of conflicts but we managed to finish the projects. It was painful. We both had escalated each other to the director previously.
Now it is time for feedback, I wrote for him a very thorough feedback emphasising all his efforts (in both A and B). I did not mention our conflicts, which I considered a normal team storming phase.
However, his feedback to me was extremely basic, he only mentioned project A.
His feedback in total was like 4 sentence, all basic things, like "XXX always on time for meetings"
I am very mad because he mentioned only one project and he didn't mention any thing about project B (nothing at all, if someone else read his feedback, they'll thing I didn't work on that project at all). It is true that he put more efforts in project B and I put more efforts in the project A, but we still worked on both of them. him 40% on A, and me 40% on B.
I am also mad because Project B is in a new programming language in the company and it is important for me to have a feedback about it because I am considering growing into senior.
I have two questions:
- What should I do? I have my 1-1 with the director next week (in fact that 1-1 happens like once a month though it is schedule weekly) Should I tell the director that I am pissed off of that feedback? and if yes, could you give me some sentences to say that? Or should I just keep my mouth shut up and hope that the director will appreciate my efforts?
- If I tell the director about this, would it feel like putting my colleague down?
To give you more context, his feedback to me didn't include any improvement points.
By feedback I mean the semi annual feedback. My employer has a feedback cycle every 6 months
