Situations like baselining in performance reviews are why I say to be loyal to your career and NOT your place of employment. Get your experience, get your money, make your connections, and keep it moving. You’ll eventually get your OUTWARD recognition. Trust, those managers know your true worth, they just don’t want to recognize it via ratings because they’ll have to compensate accordingly. They probably take you for granted as well, it happens.

Get your LinkedIn profiles tight. Always be woke to the next career move. Be true to yourself as well! Don’t be a suspect professional claiming that you’re getting baselined! You know where you really need to improve. Work on those improvement points, get the necessary training and development, and market yourself well.
