I used to have a great relationship with my manager, but when they told me that I got PIPed I sort of felt betrayed? I want to be clear that I'm not saying that they shouldn't have PIPed me for our relationship, I felt betrayed because I didn't see it coming at all? Anyone been in a situation like this? How do you just focus on getting out of PIP rather than focusing on taking it personally?

- Yelp / Eng sJJv80If you weren’t seeing signs and getting explicit warnings beforehand, either you have a bad manager, or your manager is being forced to do the bidding of bad managers above them. PIP should never be coming out of the blue.
- Salesforce blah blah1I’d first analyze the human aspect. Birds of a feather flock together. Is he the same race as you?
And if anyone thinks race doesn’t matter they’ve not worked at big companies long enough.
- @Thizzy: Here is a list since you're too lazy to google this:
1. Irving Tan - SvP, Head of Operations - responsible for Cisco's Operating strategy and implementation
2. Amy Chang - SVP and General Manager, Cisco Collaboration: Leads Cisco's Collaboration business( Webex portfolio including Meetings, Teams, Devices, Calling, and Contact Center)
3. Anuj Kapur - SVP and Chief Strategy Officer: Responsible for the company's overall strategic direction and is on the review board for Cisco's Investment arm
- @Perficient why not list the whole executive list. And Irving is the only one that is an executive officer. Know your shit before you talk shit. The Cisco exec team is
Chuck Robbins CEO
Mark Chandler EVP CLO CCO
Gerri Elliot EVP CSO CMO
David Goeckeler EVP and GM
Kelly A Kramer EVP CFO
Maria Martinez EVP CCEO
Oh yeah. Last but not least
IRVING Tan Not a EVP but a SVP COO.
You should l2google and research before you talk about shit you have no idea about.
- Also it's not a woe is me victim mentality but the truth. You seen to be in the victim state of things as sometimes the truth is hard to accept and you go straight to denial or excuses. This has been proven on multiple occasions by the few east Asian c-level executives who broke through the bamboo ceiling in their own words
- CenturyLink / Sales phonemanPerhaps it has to do with you finishing every sentence with a ? mark when you aren't even asking a question.
Your manager should've come with a plan of action to go along with the PIP, otherwise your manager is not doing their part to help improve your performance.
- Take msa and leave. That will keep the option of future return to Cisco open.
