I’ve recently been spoken to like shit from a year 1 associate, shouted at over things out of control and then told off for responding to it by not saying the right things. I’ve not been at the firm long but the disrespect and humiliation is too much for me. The person made me cry after shouting at me in private and speaking to me a very degrading manner. I told my supervisor and in turn was asked whether I can continue working with the person, I said I could but now I’m doubting it…..

How do you tell if your managing partner is invested in your success? I feel like my managing partner couldn’t care less about my development, career, or success. They hardly ever speak to me and are not really doing anything to show me the ropes in a new practice area I undertook for this job. I am not in a position to leave due to past short stints, and things are not horrible, just want to tackle this feeling of abandonment.

In California, can your boss tell you that you can’t park in the handicapped spot as it’s for customers? I have a few invisible disabilities one which can cause me to physically faint especially when it’s super hot out. I have a permanent handicap placard as well. I was asked if there is a reason I can’t walk to which I responded that I have a condition and it will cause me to pass out called POTs. He then told me to move my car out of the handicapped spot. Can he do this?

Thinking about seeking a lateral position with the ultimate goal of getting a retention bonus from my firm. Is this dishonest? They’re paying laterals through the nose and people who remain loyal won’t get even one of those meeting room pens with a tip you could use on a touchscreen.
