Is there is a curve? Is it true that if you have an ok-ok semester you should start packing?

    You're usually fine having a bad half. If you get two in a row is when you're in trouble. But plenty of people have an off half and don't meet all expectations and then bounce back the next half.

      The opposite also happens. Rockstars got burnt out and then being managed out after 2 MMs

      I've always been annoyed at people who work 80 hours a week to get the best rating possible and then complain about burning out. I have seen E3 to E5 all able to cruise and get meets all and exceeds without working extra hours or doing anything crazy. If you want to ruin your half for a little extra money then that's on you, otherwise push back on your manager.

      +1 zuccc. Being a rock star isn't grinding 80+ hours/week. Being a rock star is getting that work done in sustainable fashion.

      Not promoting grinders who burn out is the right thing to do, at least sometimes. If you can't perform at the next level in a sustainable fashion then if you have to drop back due to burnout you will per definition be an underperformer. Sad but true.

      Depends upon manager and team. I got GE, EE consistently in infra with 45-50 hours. I switched to product and getting MM this half. I am E5. Product is a compete shitshow

    I was interviewed for product (video). Can I select infra or any other team during bootcamp.

      During my interview they told me that you can change team during bootcamp.
