It seems that a mid-level manager's job is to hold people back and keep them from outshining them. Performance reviews are clearly subjective. In my last job, at a major financial corporation, they made it very difficult to give positive performance reviews. It was a scam. On top of all of this BS being a POC makes it even worse. You're not part of the club whatsoever so you’re totally on your own.
