And remember they have experience to Trump (no pun intended) your observation. Be better, not be judgier (sp?)

OP, you might be skating on thin ice. Have your colleagues noticed your exasperation? If they have and you accidentally rub off your seniors the wrong way, they might put you in a super challenging project/role wherein you might not be the smartest in the room and might be playing catch up. On such an occasion, you won’t receive any help and might be the one asking dumb questions. I say this with experience. A former colleague( who was very good in a certain technical domain) expressed similar frustration to her manager. She was subsequently put in a a different role and because of her demeanor she received little to no help. Her performance went down and she left the firm a year later. If your colleague asks , what you think is, a dumb question, answer it and move on.

I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.

Ladies, I am up for promotion soon and have gotten extremely positive verbal feedback on my last project. However, the formal review that I received from the mgr deviated from the verbal review. Mgr claims that he wrote a glowing promotion review, which principal/partner team pushed back on. I don’t trust the mgr’s words because we’ve had some bad blood before and he is telling me to let him circle back w/leadership and for me to stay out of it. Any advice on next steps? Sad and frustrated.
