Company review season is coming up. I’m a first time middle manager. So my focus is (highest to lowest priority) 1) delegation & coaching; 2) internal processes & ops (team enablement); 3) code review/feedback; and 4) ad hoc partnerships/support for my team and other teams. As an IC, I had a lot of peers, stakeholders and projects where I worked in depth, but now, my scope is broader and I worry that it’s harder to get quality 360 feedback and it’ll hurt my reviews. Any suggestions ppl have?

It's challenging, but you will probably get used to it and do swimmingly in time. Don't worry too much about perf right now, do what you need to do as best as you're able.

Are you worried that no single individual is going to know enough about all your work to be able to weigh in the quality of your performance overall? How are reviews conducted at your company?

Yeah that’s exactly the concern. Individuals pick the people that they want to solicit feedback from, and their managers use it as a reference to give feedback
