If you got a tier 4, it’s either because you coach/RL thought that’s what you were, or that HR made the recommendation and your coach/RL didn’t fight against it. It may be tough but i would consider having a meaningful conversation with them to get their feedback, regardless of if you choose to stay or not

How long of an absence?

Yes, I’ve seen it done.

Yes what ^

Crt results aren’t out yet. How do you know your rating. If you are rated the same or lower coming out of the new one then my guess is they say no. If you improved they probably say Ok .

Yes I’ve seen sabbaticals taken by tier 4s

Is a 4 that bad? A 5 must be true Armageddon. You’d figure if you were rated that low you’d have a idea before the performance year finished.

I’ve never actually seen anyone get a 5 in practice. If you’re performing worse than a 4, you’re fired

Is the your relationship leader / coach part of the reason you might get a tier 4? Or is mostly HR? I just found out I got a tier 4 and feel totally blindsided. I decided recently that I wanted to leave the firm and I guess this just speeds up the process...

What would you do?
I have 4 families that I’ve been hanging out with for a couple of years and then a new family starting hanging out with us recently. It’s never all 6 families at once because someone always has a conflict. Part of hanging out is regular Saturdays at our house in our pool. I’m having people over this Sat but can’t invite the new family because all of the other 4 are coming plus my brother and his family are coming so it would be a safety issue with too many people in the pool.

Thinking about leaving Product Management.

Altogether I’ve been in Product from entry level role to senior/lead pm now for about 5 years.

I’m fed up/burnt out dealing with incompetent people (clients devs different teams) the mundane and repetitiveness of rinse recycle and repeat of product is exhausting and boring me out.

I make really good money and honestly I’m only in it for the money now. What’s a career that pas 500k+

I had an interview last week. The interviewer asked me whether I was apply for other jobs as well & how it was going. After the interview I felt like I shouldn’t have disclosed so much information. I shared that I have been actively applying for other jobs but that I haven’t gotten many responses. And that in the meantime I’ve been focusing on developing myself (finished reading PMBOK, taking LinkedIn Learning PM course, etc). Should I have said this? Now they know I don’t have many options 🤦🏾‍♀️.
