Has anyone worked as a staff attorney? What firm and practice area? How was your experience? Do you feel it was a step back if you went from attorney to staff attorney?
Our female Program Manager mentioned that the team has too much “male energy” in the team. I understand this, as 7 out of 10 folks in our team are male. I’m a dude and I wasn’t offended to be clear lol. But would these types of comments generally considered ok in your workplaces as well? Would a male PM saying there’s too much female energy be also ok, or is that considered a horrible thing to say? Just curious tbh.
