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.
