I was dancing and at one point my arm went out to my side, apparently there was a woman walking from behind me with drink in hand. Ended up swatting her drink, spilling it on her and I'm pretty sure the glass broke on the floor. Cue a dozen apologies and sulking away in a corner in shame 🙃

Our partner, who art unavailable
Hallowed be thy name
They project won
They work be done
Though not within client budget
Give us this day our billable hours
And forgive us our bench time
As we forgive those who take poorly timed PTO
And lead us not to industry
But deliver us to client site.
🙏

Thanks for starting this bowl. One of the things I find challenging is making small talk with coworkers about holiday plans etc, when you’re forced to explain that you’re not spending holidays with your family. They then launch into some “well-meaning” advice about life being too short and me only having one family. It’s hard to resist the urge to point out that this was not a decision I took lightly, and that they are severely out of turn. I’m tired of smiling and nodding 😒

I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”

I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...

Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.

One of my junior associates recently resigned and I've been trying to make an exit myself for several months now. The job market has been really competitive but I am getting closer to getting a new job and moving on. The firm culture isn't great and work-life balance is non existent. My physical and mental health have been suffering, so I really don't think I could stay. How did you avoid the guilt trips from Partners/Senior staff trying to get you to stay?
