Raise was rejected after a 6mth delayed review, manager says I didn't hit 1 of 10 KPIs despite me having measurable proof that I did. Says I'm above + beyond in others. Is it time for an exit plan?

I’m sorry. Your performance is measured in KPIs??? Like your creative boss thinks that way? GTFO of that place my friend

Yep. Leave. They’re finding reasons not to compensate you properly.

Don’t assume you’re in trouble. Not getting a raise is a good reason to leave and worth kicking off an aggressive job hunt. Don’t let your worries affect your job performance though, they have a way of doing that. Put all your energy into looking for a job. No point in guesswork.

I suspect they will try and give you that raise once you hand your notice in.

It’s likely a sinking ship with no money. Don’t go down with the ship. Get in a lifeboat.

What would happen if someone was interviewing for a role and accidentally passed gas, but otherwise crushed the interview? Has anyone experienced this before? No clue what I’d do as the interviewer
