Friend told his partner he was leaving. “Partner essentially gave him shit about how we was disappointed in him, and overall just made him feel like shit”. Is this normal?

I think it’s uncommon but certainly happens. It says more about the partner than your friend tbh. Some people thinks success is a defined linear promotion process at big 4 and when people leave, it threatens their belief

This - tell you’re friend he/she should be glad to leave now as that partner’s reaction just told you what working for that person long-term would be like.

I've heard of partners like that. They're brats who need to grow up and act like adults.

Your friend did nothing wrong. Always look out for yourself first.

Happened to a friend of mine as well, it just proves that you should put yourself first, they will never be happy

It shows that the partner is selfish, and only looking at it from the perspective of how your friend leaving is inconveniencing the partner. It’s ok to be disappointed that someone is leaving, but not ok to make them feel bad about it. The partner needs to learn how to be gratuitous and wish someone well, maybe if they did, less people would quit on them...... Good luck to your friend!

Depends on the partner. In my experience that’s the sign of a bad leader who truly doesn’t care about his/her people and their well being and success. Signifies a bad culture in my opinion.

Trainee here. A senior came to my office that I’m sharing with the team paralegal and complained about a mistake I made last week when we were filing. Everything was explained in a very politically correct but firm wording. I don’t know why my voice started shaking and my eyes got wet when I apologised. I felt so ashamed in front of the paralegal and now I’m just feeling so stupid :(
