Manager keeps declining/ignoring one on ones

Amazon marshmelll
Sep 4 18 Comments

Been roughly a month since I joined this company as a senior sde, I have not had a single one on one with my manager despite attempting to schedule it a few times.
I understand people can be busy but multiple declines and no attempt to find an agreeable time raises red flags ? Am I over thinking it, any tips or pointers ? Or is my only option to start leet coding again and find a new place.

PS: Not at Amazon

      This. I switched teams and was promoted. Manager is not interested in any new joiners ' orientation. I know he is leaving.

    If they have an admin talk to them directly, not Skype not email face to face

      Ask if they can meet for coffee before the day starts or during lunch.

      If they wont meet, ask your skip level for a 1:1 and copy your manager ;)

      The skip option sounds nuclear :), will give it a shot if nothing else works

    Yes your manager is going out. He doesn't care about following 1:1s and all anymore.

    Maybe your manager is on PIP and is looking at leaving?

    I guess it's fine unless you really really need it?

    Donโ€™t worry. 1:1 are meant for managers to give you feedback. If heโ€™s not engaged you can skip it until end of qtr
