Honestly I agree with IB1 - how can you be sub par for so long and not do anything about it and now expect recognition because it suits you? Lol I'd say be frank with your manager because I'm sure they're aware of the situation and indicate your interest in being better and then let them hold you accountable. Also thank them for giving you time to grow up. That kind of transparency will get you promoted. P.S. this is what people mean when they say "entitled millennials"

What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
