Is it unrealistic to expect a performance review 14 months into new position?

When I came back from ML, my boss shifted my role around a bit, taking some aspects out and delegating these to an assistant she hired in my absence. So management of the assistant is part of my new role. I was second-in-command before ML, now am one of 3 in a management team.

I'm finding my workload hard to cope with, and want to know what the best way to address this would be. I would have expected a review to see how the new arrangement was working, but boss doesn't seem to value these at all. No other obvious way of addressing this, as far as I can tell. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Can't you just ask for a meeting with him rather than calling it a 'Review'? <<Mind you, I hate all the perfomance review crap so would be gleeful at avoiding one for 14 months>>

Just had a meeting, ended up in a massive argument. Trouble is, the whole place is in a bit of a pickle, boss v. unprofessional and many employees have been reduced to tears over boss's unpleasantness.

I suppose I want to cover my back as she's criticising my management skills - worried this could escalate.

Oh dear, that doesn't sound good. When the boss is crap make sure to keep lots of defensive records
