Midlevel Corp NYC big law. Received a mixed bag review during mid-year review. Even positive and negative. My reviews over the years have had peaks and valleys. Worried about consistency. Should I dip or at least start talking to recruiters? Didn’t get an action plan or anything but it was a “developmental message.” Besides obviously internalizing and correcting to get better- thoughts on whether I should start looking?

Been in litigation for 5 years and never set foot in a court room. Reviews are really good but when court opportunities came along they always ended up going to others. Time for a new job. 🙄
