Hey look at this person with passion

The great thing about hating a project is that the longer ago it gets, you tend to forget all the negativity and at some point in time you’ll think fondly of this time 🥴

Spot on E3! You know it was awful, but the memories are still nice!

Sorry to hear that 😢 If you have a close network, they may be able to save you by pulling you onto a "more important" project

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.
