At a previous company I worked for we had 360 reviews i.e. where your peers / direct reports anonymously reviewed your progress along with your manager. This gave a 360 degree appraisal (those beneath, alongside and above you).

I remember getting critical feedback from some of my peers, but as the whole thing was anonymous, I didn't know who had said those things (although I had very strong suspicions).

This created a very bad working environment where you could annually bad mouth a co-worker, and your manager would take this into your review meeting and ask you for comment.

So glad I no longer work there. One of the worst company cultures I have ever had the misfortune to experience.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
