I'm looking for advice in the following situation:
Due to recent restructuring in the company I work for, I now report to a manager who is more than 2 levels above me and who is not interested in the details of what I do as long as the operations run smoothly (and they do). Also, the second person doing the same job as me quit last year and I have been handling the work of two people for the last 9 months. I believe I am doing a great job - I had to learn the business intricates of the other person's job and handle that end as well as my own and everything works smoothly, even though I have to work 10 to 12 hours a day.
My boss wrote a mediocre review as part of the HR process which I now need to officially acknowledge. I don't particularly agree with his evaluation of my performance which I believe is unfair and was written without understanding the circumstances, but I also don't want to come across as a person who argues with the boss about little details and cannot take criticism.
Is there any benefit in writing an acknowledgement comment stating that I disagree or should I just acknowledge the review and let it slide?
A few clarifications:
- This manager is relatively new to this company.
- The manager wrote this review after I have submitted self-evaluation for the past year, outlining all details of my achievements I found relevant.
