Anyone else feel completely unappreciated by their firm? At my firm, Skadden, people rarely say thank you to junior associates (even after pulling repeated all-nighters or after signing/closing significant transactions). The firm messaging rarely seems to show appreciation for associates’ efforts, and the firm never sends tokens of appreciation for hard work (small gifts, sending $$ for a good home setup (outside of tech), or paying a fall appreciation bonus), which I hear other firms have done.
