English term or phrase:rubs you the wrong way
Employees may be under-rated for one or more of these reasons;
1.Weak coworkers. If the person is working directly with people who are not supportive, his or her performance may suffer in spite of efforts.
2.Guilt by Association. The person is friends with someone who is perceived as a poor performer and may be perceived by others as a problem himself.
3.Dramatic effect. The person makes one mistake close to the evaluation period and this covers up an entire year of good work.
4.Personality traits. The person just ***"rubs you the wrong way."***
Explanation: I don't think I'm expressing it quite right. Mika's answer is OK, but "rubs the wrong way" isn't really tied to attitude. I means "(though I can't necessarily tell you what it is) something about the person makes me uncomfortable".
