You should get a cat. Ideally a fat orange one

A fat orange cat would become a skinny orange cat that does because I am not home enough.

I am so grateful to have a job right now but I am really struggling. I’ve been at D for a little under a year and have been really unhappy with my experience. In particular, my current project and my direct supervisor make me feel unbelievably incompetent and under appreciated. Given COVID, there is little flexibility to roll off. I’ve tried to stick it through but I’m at a breaking point. Any suggestions on how to make the best of it? Or next steps?

How do you guys think about performance reviews? Try to get the best score you possibly can? Scrape by with doing the minimum while solving for sustainable hours, and then being OK with just an average rating / promotion timeline? Focus on lots of self-promotion? I know I could be better at this job if I put more time and effort into it - but is it worth it? The things I’m getting reviewed on seem rather nitpicky and don’t impact team efficiency or client outcomes so I’m struggling to care.
