Have you tried looking internally for other positions if that interests you?

I’m in no rush to leave but I just want to have an idea of what is generally accepted. Personally I have more of an interest in finance so eventually I’d like to transition to that industry if I can get interviews.

Following* same boat

So depends on who you ask but moving for opportunities is not a stigma for all. It can show that you have the ability to be agile and acquire needed skills to an industry practitioner vs. loyal to an organization. There are plenty of people that move from firm to firm —especially if they are recruited away for more money and promotion. It just depends on what you want and what motivates you. Then once you get clear on that how you position yourself in the market.

Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.
