Feedback is one of the most valuable tools to support people and company growth. What is feedback? It is any information about the product, workplace, company culture, team, workmates, or managers used as a basis for improvement. The feedback comes from many sources, but in this article, we focus on feedback between engineers and their engineering managers.
The feedback goals, frequency, and methodology to achieve them are good indicators of the company’s culture. For example, there are many companies where the goals are only focused on performance delivery and not on the growth of the people’s career path or skills.
