Any paralegals out there that have worked for just awful attorneys? My previous supervising attorney would forge my notary signature, force me to work off the clock and while on vacation, and basically treated me like her personal assistant. I remember one time she asked me to watch her baby while she went into a client meeting. My favorite memory of all was when she made me drive to the office at 10 pm to see if her laptop was there. Good times.

I worked for a couple of attorneys who were plain mean. But a talk with the managing attorney about it set them straight. Nowadays, I just refuse to deal with that personality. Frankly I’m too old. I go straight for the jugular. Stop being mean and start being professional.

Why is it assumed PMs are responsible for scheduling all meetings and taking notes? When did this happen? I was responsible for providing a recap of meetings in the sense of next steps, not in depth notes on the conversation. As for scheduling meetings, I was responsible for scheduling the milestone meetings (kick offs, internal reviews, post mortems, status meetings that I led), I did not schedule the team reviews (CD reviews with ADs/CWs), client meetings, etc. Comments?

As a Solutions Architect, my job is to validate business requirements to come up with architecture and solution designs. I then work with the devs and support implementation.

The client I'm at doesn't know how to do efficient requirements gathering so I'm effectively... stuck. I can't solution or architect without requirements. The DL asked me for my recos on what resources the client needs to fill this gap. Is it fair to say they need business analysts? Anything else?
