If you’re certain you will be rolled off from a project because of poor performance, would it be better to preemptively ask to roll off ahead of the news coming?

The poor performance has already been noticed. It’s too late and doesn’t really matter. I recommended being proactive in demonstrating that you are aware of the performance issue and have thought about how you were going to fix it moving forward

I've framed it as a fit problem and said, "It feels like I'm not adding the value the client needs, and will continue to do my best, but would understand if you want to find a backfill with more experience in X." It worked. I still got dinged at year end for low performance, but I was so, so happy to be out of there.

If you’re fast on the draw - maybe nobody documents anything

Before offering to roll, have an open conversation with your manager. It’s possible you aren’t doing as poorly as you think (read: imposter syndrome). You ask to roll and you come off as weak...

They do not want to drive online conversions on their website. We will have some sponsored product advertising (ex. Instacart) later on.
