Anyone have people who work for clients who are either young or inexperienced and treat you as outside counsel like you’re their bitch...except 90% of the time they have no clue what they are doing?

As a youngish/ relatively inexperienced counsel, what would be ideal when using outside counsel? Trying not to be this type of client

Quite sure this may illicit some mixed reaction but I send a doc and say “We need to add the exhibit and will include on the next turn but sending this for your review to expedite, per your request.” Response: “Let’s go ahead and get that exhibit in and then I’ll review it.” Ok now that I write it out not awful but the totality of my interactions with this person makes this situation highly frustrating. You are not getting the doc back today which is why I sent it for your review without the exhibit. Now you shall wait. Clearly I’ve had a long day.

Anyone else feel like that if they aren’t doing the work themselves then it’s never done correctly? Doesn’t matter what it is - admin to client work - always materially incorrect. Also, doesn’t matter what training I give them - a quick overview or an in-depth working session. And then the Partners ask why I’m exhausted all the time.

Advise working with a coworker who doesn't "answer the question directly": I just joined a new company and I am starting to work with a coworker but I feel like he tends to deflect my questions all the time and he often gives a vague/BS answer. FOR EXAMPLE, I stepped in reviewing the list of deliverables needed for the project, I provided my input but instead of discussing the actual context, he would just gave me a bunch of historical background information. How do I "cut to the chase"?
