Don't fight sexism wth ageism

like

No, the commonly used meaning of ageism says so. Using descriptors does not automatically equal an -ism. Did OP need to mention age? No. The tone and language of this post does not communicate that she is prejudiced against older people. OP does sound a bit intimidated by the older men and is seeking advice on how to approach the situation given this awkwardness.

She could already be doing good work - I don’t get the point of this comment? Even with exemplary good work, if someone senior to you sets you up for failure...you fail.

Having been there, here's some concrete steps:
1) document any events that make you uncomfortable in very precise language about the details and how it made you feel
2) you should be able to speak anonymously to an ombudsman or to a trusted mentor
3) keep your head up

PM treated us differently because we were women through his tone and manner. Today, one of my male teammates confirmed he thinks my PM has something against women and noticed he treats me differently. Any suggestions on how to navigate this sticky situation?

Just had an interview with the CEO of this brand (it was my 4th interview for this role). For some reason, I got really nervous and I think it got the best of me.

Small family law firm. We hired our first associate almost 2 years ago. Granted her first year was virtual due to pandemic but she just doesn’t seem to be getting it. Motions are not nearly where they should be to the point where we can’t even give edits, we’re having to do complete rewrites. We spoke to her and her response was that we’re not paying her to give her all. We kept her on and gave her feedback and another chance. Nothing changed. Do we talk to her again or is it time to let her go?

Trying to cut billable hours. Anyone utilize a “subscription service” for lack of a better term. EX: charge $300/week until matter resolved. Hypothetically capping your case load per associate could bring in the same amount on a steadier rate than billable hrs. (25 matters x 300 /week) Giving client ability to budget their family matter.
