    My manager basically tells me how much I suck as I don’t know politics, that I’m not eligible for promotion and basically I am no good. In return I just keep quite 😂

      Thanks man. I did, got 2 offers and waiting for my visa transfer to happen- now I’m going to make sure I annoy the f*** out of my manager. I don’t care about the future relation.

      >that I'm not eligible for promotion
      But then you ask what you need to do to get there, right?
      If you communicate that it's a longer term goal, then it's a development expectation. He's not doing his job if he isn't finding the next steps to get you there, right?

      Yes - I had been working on the feedback last 6 months and for some reason the feedback kept changing. This appraisal cycle for my rating and level everyone got stock refreshers but me. When asked I was told that the team did my have funds(not true). All this time my work has been appreciated by stakeholders(I kept proofs). Recently i asked for reimbursement of some course fee and the response was that we would have reimbursed it if I was a high performer. That’s when I lost it and stopped giving a rat’s ass!

      Well, that's what's supposed to happen, right? You address the previous feedback, and then your manager has more? Otherwise, it's like saying "I finished my work, but then my manager gave me more work for some reason."
      When your manager runs out of feedback, that's when you might be ready for a promotion, I think

      @capital one - I agree but if it’s humiliating and demoralizing, how do you keep yourself motivated and How do you explain the money though?
      Money and motivation are the two things you expect from your job. I don’t have both

      @paypal - I’m sure we are not in the same team but Paypal is filled with toxic managers

      @shauwijsv not getting reimbursed for the course fee is not performance dependent. Every team has a training budget, if you want to know about your VP’s training budget you can reach out to the said VP’s “people director” or glorified HR and ask them about the policy. It’s not up to your manager. Which org are you in?

      I would have been fine it the reason was no funds(which btw my friend was reimbursed few months back at Paypal) but as I mentioned the reason given was different!

    It's always about retirement or some useless factoid about Space Odyssey.
    Turns out I can retire.
    I just have to die within 2 months of that.
    Maybe it's a good choice. Not many options left.
