I spoke to my head of department and she wasn't consulted in regards to this "performance review" and she is happy with my level of work, and sees me as a valuable member of the department.

Good news then :)

I imagine your line manager might be looking a little sheepish next time you see them

Related to this, or for other reasons?

Related to this. But there were other reasons. I think this was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I really wish my colleagues would learn to consult me before they start trying to fix problems on our computer system. Or at least tell me when they realise something hasn't worked as they expected. :banghead:

Ah yes, but IT departments are difficult to liaise with not least because they lack the understanding of basic Human interaction. Also they probably needed the solution within a reasonable amount of time and thought they'd be "pro-active"....

I interact perfectly fine with other human beings, thank you very much. 8-)

It's users that are the problem....

To be fair to rory 'IT' is usually a decent guess in any online discussion - especially when they refer to 'fixing computer problems'
