Usually they’re rubber stamp reviews — first years in my group are generally told they’re doing fine and to speak up more in meetings. May vary depending on if your group has higher expectations for first years (and few firms expect first years to be useful), but it’s not likely you will get any specific negative feedback. More likely it will be general career advice.

Let’s say I want to get into pentesting and CEH - where would you advise starting if my experience is minimal? I know my way around things but not much scripting or too heavy network experience.

My current job is going to let us pick something, and while my answer would be to go to DEFCON 😂 that’s obviously not gonna happen this year.
