First year here and I'm very attracted to my second year. I thought she might be feeling the same way too and when the client we were on together got a new team I was hoping we could talk about the possibility of it since I would no longer be directly under her. But now we both got pulled on to a new client and she is scheduled to be the lead senior and I'll be the second year. What should I do? 😔

Just keep saying “directly under you” over and over in conversation, then it will subliminally get into her mind and you’re good. Foolproof plan.

I’m a third year senior and a female. I’ve had several male associates over the past couple years who seemed to be into me. I was never interested in them, I was just nice, polite, professional, friendly and complimented their work and explained stuff to them (as a senior is supposed to do.) Does she seem interested in you or is she just good at her job as a senior? Just something to consider before you hit on your superior.

Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

Clients with toxic cultures: how have you dealt with them? We have a compliance client with a serious culture issue- they regularly throw each other and our team under the proverbial bus, throwing escalations around etc. I am one of the junior partners and suggested having an open dialogue with our C-suite contact to discuss constructive ways of working, at the very least… but the senior partner has vetoed it. Our team morale is pretty bad and we’ve had a couple of people leave because of it.
