If you have AEs, I swear by their re-crafting service. There is a decent cobbler by 10th & U where I take lower cost shoes

There is one on 8th/T St NW as well that I have used.

I’m a 1styear, and there’s one other junior associate of color in my group.
The partner I work for keeps calling me her name. For ex: my name is “Sara” and her name is “Jasmine”. Names not similar, we don’t look alike - but I suppose we are about the same complexion. I can’t help but think it’s because we’re the only two black juniors. I was granting her grace because my mom accidentally calls me my sisters name and stuff, I get that it happens.

Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court? I started a new job and am trying to set boundaries but this is one that I cannot set as it is standard practice. In our state, an employer must reimburse you if they direct you to use your personal phone for work. It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.

Mid level has an assignment for month plus. Asks for some help, which I send on time. Weeks go by. Mid level gives me the assignment last minute, (sort of -says we’ll collaborate and then basically ghosts) and I have to send what is arguably bad work product to the partner bc of time constraints, which arguably should never have been an issue had the ML done their job. When I receive the inevitable feedback that the work product isn’t up to snuff, do I tell the partner what happened?
