Getting written negative feedback but my peers would disagree. Give up or escalate?
This is the first time in my career I am getting written feedback in a way someone could fire me. I wasn't presented a PIP or anything but my manager is clearly showing signs he is trying to push me out.
I tried to work on the feedback he gives me, but the feedback is increasingly getting less specific, therefore harder to act on.
Whenever there is a grey area where my manager could write something bad, he does and says he would do it differently, saying I made a bad judgment call. This used to happen every other month, but now it's happening every week.
Oddly though, multiple ppl from other teams told me I helped a lot, so I would assume they wrote something generally good on my performance review. Of course I have areas of improvement, but it doesn't seem like I'm doing that bad.
My skip manager is distant and has too many ppl to manage. What should I do? Just wait for the actual PIP or maybe even get straight out fired or try to escalate? I do have some evidence that my manager is neglecting me.
Yes I am looking for external jobs. Just wondering if fighting back and trying to reach out to my skip has any worth to my effort. No trolls pls
I'm not a developer (I'm in marketing), so it's not like I can find another job next week.
