Rising 3rd yr here — have you ever cried in front of a superior when getting negative feedback? If so, how did it go? I tend to get really quiet and often feel the urge to cry when a more senior associate/partner calls out a mistake I made. Admittedly, this is less of a problem when WFH but I generally struggle with controlling the urge to shut down (i.e., getting really quiet and defenseless) when an authority figure criticizes my work. Any tips on how to compose yourself in these situations?
Wanted to get some thoughts. My wife works in private accounting and just got promoted to manager. We prepared for her compensation negotiation for about a week.

I am embarrassed that this is how they treat their employees.
