What do you do if the partner who hired you is nice in social settings but awful to work for? And you can’t seem to escape from working for that partner. This partner doesn’t respond to your emails for critical issues that you need input on, doesn’t return your phone calls and voicemails and throws you under the bus in front of the client to blame you for her mistakes. The seniors are too busy. Just joined this firm so lateraling isn’t a viable option.

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.

I’m so exhausted. A couple weeks ago, I closed a huge deal, some smaller ones after and was really looking forward to my one week leave. Come my week on leave, the client on another massive file (early stages, undrafted docs) decides they want closing to take place on the day I’m back from leave. My covering assoc 3 years more senior than me struggled with the complexity of the file and I had to run the file during my leave.. it sucks to not be able to enjoy leave planned months in advance

What happens once we’re approaching partnership toward 7th or 8th year? What if you don’t make partner? Are most firms “up or out”?

I recently lateraled to big law from a medium to large sized firm. I was generally very happy with the people I worked with at the previous firm and moderately happy with the work I was doing. I left because I was concerned about the viability of the firm, but I really hate my new firm. People aren’t as nice as I’m used to, no positive reinforcement, etc. My old firm told me I was always welcome to come back. How long do I wait to go back if that’s ultimately what I decided I wanted to do?

Current firm are asking me to stay saying they will give me the support and deals that I have been asking for.

Very split on what to do here...

Seeing that the compatibility of Marxist views with working in big law has been a major discussion point, here’s my take:

I strongly believe that capitalism and eternal growth is doomed to fail, and to end capitalism as quickly as possible, capitalism should be intensified.

Where does that happen? Through big law! I could quit, become a weird activist only my own echochamber listens to, or work to self-destruct capitalism while living a financially secure life myself.
