Curious, has anyone left their toxic firm in a blaze of glory and informed HR the real reasons they were leaving? I am one foot out the door with my firm and I already know I will be labeled as problematic because everyone that has left has been labeled the same way. Firm can’t retain attorneys and has very high turnover rate. In the end I will likely bite my tongue and only discuss salary reasons because my legal market is small. Hoping to live vicariously through one of you brave souls.

Where’s the line between giving your leaders the benefit of the doubt vs this pattern is pretty dang toxic? I don’t want to leave but I’m so exhausted by the gate-keeping, the self-interest of leaders lacking any kind of employee first mentality, and the lip service of “we want to make this the best place to work.” I’m being told I’m under-utilized but when I try to bring more to the table, I’m either given empty promises or immediately dismissed. - I’m severely burnt out on trust-fails.
