Been crying at least twice a day on this new project. It’s been a month of bullying (but hey, you’re the new kid, we’re just joking, that’s how we roll). It sucks SO much.

record and report the incident to HR

Stay cool, don’t break eye contact, and gently ask them what’s driving their antagonistic behavior. They may not know what to say or how to react (besides getting upset) and that’s okay. This is where we separate the adults from the children. (And hey, for what it’s worth - I’m sorry you’re having to work with these types of folks.)

Yeah I would say either try to be transparent about how the culture is affecting you to someone you trust in the team and/or if you don’t feel comfortable talking to your team, get your coach to advocate for you

Start looking for another job. Work with your advocate or coach within the firm to get to a different project, if you can (not all firms allow people to move around on projects). When you have your new job lined up or you’re on a new project, then report. In the meantime, document everything. See if you can get documentation from friendly team members that act as witnesses. Try to get it in writing where possible. Make sure you prioritize yourself, your health, and your well-being first and foremost. Reporting is more often than not where the behavior of the person who reported it becomes scrutinized.

I am going into my second year practicing law. I am at a small litigation firm (I would prefer not to give my location but will say that I am not in a big market).

If a partner cuts my time… or the client refuses to may for some of my time (even if I DID THE WORK)… that time doesn’t count towards my total billable hours.
