A teammate doesn't write code for 4 months and he is not fired

See the title. I don't work for Amazon anymore.

I just joined the team recently. We own a well built system but are still working on a few minor features, so there should be a fair amount of work for sde1 like him to do.

Senior guys and manager are sometimes in discussion that if the guy is assigned the right tasks.

Is it normal? Is he in a secret dev list or pip? Not sure if that is a thing here.

    Imagine this scenario:

    he's spending all his time working on and thinking about his side project that he wants to turn into a company. He knows when the next perf review cycle is and plans to quit right at the cusp of it to launch his new company. He expects to miss the bonus and doesn't care what his refreshers will be.

    Only the well-connected. Only the elite. Only certain ethnicities can be ENCOURAGED to pursue this behavior and succeed at it.

      No he has 1 yoe in total. The last commit he did was an alarm config tweak.
