I unfortunately received the unpleasant information at work that my immediate supervisor will be departing the company for reasons unknown to me. I have a performance evaluation upcoming within next week, making the timing even more unfortunate. I have occasional meetings with the next level of management above my own supervisor but day to day concerns are handled by my direct supervisor who is leaving the company.
The other members of management within my department is only slightly familiar with the projects I am working on, on a day to day basis. These people operate and run the company on a high level and rarely gets involved with the fine details of individual projects. A lot of what I am responsible for is assigned to me by my direct supervisor. I want to be evaluated fairly on my evaluation, but realize it will be difficult under the tight deadline and the hands off nature of higher management. Higher management is also incredibly busy managing the overall direction of our department.
I am worried about the upcoming evaluation and also how to fill the void regarding concerns and projects going forward. How can I handle this situation in the most professional manner? How do I communicate my progress with other members of management?
