This is what scares me. I’m getting ready to come to the bench. I’m worried that if lay-offs happen, I will be one of the first to go. I’m high performing (1/2 rating) but am high paid.

Benches are getting longer

My firm normally has annual review meetings in August and pay raises take effect on October 1st. On a call held in early September they said the meetings would actually take place at the end of September. Next, there was a zoom call last week in which management did not mention reviews at all until someone asked when they will be, and they said “soon”. Thoughts?
