Just joined a team where it feels like there isn't much for me to do because everyone already has their section of the project. Should I ask team members for work?

Ask your manager, not your coworkers. Not everyone is happy about letting others "play with their Legos" even when they clearly need the help.

"Play with their legos" - perfect way to describe my teammates and projects haha

Collaboration is great but this sounds like it should be your manager’s responsibility to place you on projects.

Def take it up with your manager - they'd know best who you'd be most effective in helping

You could ask your teammates if there's anything you can do to help them but also raise this with your Manager during your 1x1.

Hey all, just finished first yr as mgr and received a rating of 4.

Initially, I had attempted to arrange project and approach planning meetings which noone attended.
