I am a high performer and well-liked by clients and senior directors. Have had some friction with my management which I won’t get into here, but it is personal. I’m sad because I enjoy my job and colleagues but I will not be able to stay with the team under these circumstances. I will be asking for an informal review. When I asked them the reason in our meeting yesterday for denying promotion, they could not give me a clear answer. I am embarrassed to face my team and colleagues Monday knowing that many have been successful in the process and I haven’t. But it’s a blessing in disguise and inventive for me to move on to something better. Thanks for reading.

Yup. Same boat here as well

Hey I’m in the same position. Got on a project where there was already a target on my back (internal political issues). Leave as fast as you can. I have no regrets - protect your sense of self worth and get rid of those who perpetuate toxicity.

Here to say that you are very mature about this and your feelings are valid. It does you no good to stay-sends a wrong message even. So good luck in your job search which I am so sure you are going to nail it with your trust in yourself, demonstrable good judgement and situational awareness! All these characteristics come out well in interviews.
