I'm on a small developer team that has huge problems.
The team leader is very aggressive and negative, and that has caused the effect that nobody communicates. For example, in meetings no one else speaks but the leader. If anyone else tries to speak, the leader dismisses his/her words saying it's annoying or waste of time or stupid question, or misunderstands the question and when noted about that, answers "no, I didn't misunderstood". Generally he doesn't have anything positive to say and he has several times threatened to get each of us fired.
Now I'm soon having a performance review, which has a section for team and management problems, where I can address this issues. However, due to team problems, I also have motivation problems that affect both my performance and future plans. I feel like I'm just a code monkey who doesn't have a right to speak to anybody, nothing I do matters because I will get bashed anyway, and I feel stupid answering questions about the future goals etc., because it doesn't feel likely my position has any possibilities to improve or get more responsibilities.
What I want to say, is obviously that the team problems cause me a lack of motivation. But of course it doesn't look too good to only accuse other people, and performance review is supposed to be about me mostly. How do I find the balance between addressing these issues and focusing my performance?
