Hmm how can I get terminated not for cause? Showing up but doing such poor work they want to get rid of me? Wouldn't that take a whole year through an evaluation cycle?

Think it depends on your HR and partner. If they are just not showing up because they don't want to work on that client say bye bye. If they missed there flight just get ready to gear shit about it until you leave the firm

I don't understand why some think that people get fired only at year end... if you aren't performing you can be let go whenever the firm sees fit. At will employment, read your employment letter

Then be an adult. Make a decision. Resign. Take control of your life and don't play immature manipulative games to get what you want so you can blame others and play the victim card.

And they don't owe you a severance simply because you don't like your current situation. You chose to work here. You are free to choose not to.

Yes. Why would you get severance? :))))

If you do poor work you still just get fired until there's a downturn and you're in the layoff lane

Nope, standing on my own 2 feet. Just hate my project and feel no one cares when I advocate for myself. So I'd rather quit or get fired and live off savings until I find another job than continue on this one.

Standing on your own two feet is deliberately underperforming to get an unethical severance. Got it

I pay for all my own bills and that's all I take responsibility for. I don't owe the firm anything. They don't give a shit about me either.

That's exactly what standing on your own two feet means... not sure what other definition you go by.
