Got screamed at again by my partner today. The other partners are wonderful. Glad I've been talking to a couple of recruiters as I'm now officially ready to move. Sigh😕.

I always tell people when they complain about retaining associates, all it takes is one toxic moment with one toxic partner to get an associate to start returning recruiters calls. All the retention bonuses and iPads won’t prevent that from happening, and then you’re going to lose a very valuable associate.

Bingo. I can buy my own iPad, I can’t buy being an employee in a decent work environment free of screamers

Sorry OP. No one should ever get yelled at.

Unpopular view but never is strong. There are very rare huge fuckups that do deserve yelling but those should be very very very rare. If this is a regular thing, your partner is an asshole

I work for a toxic partner. Got an interview today elsewhere. The feeling is incredible. Make sure to give notice to the screamer, the sheer look on their face will make it worthwhile

Glad you’re moving on. Screamers are intolerable. Then there are the passive aggressive and demeaning/belittling partners who are also atrocious

Im sorry someone is speaking to you like this. You deserve better. Good firms to work at don't tolerate screamers.

I worked at a great firm that had one asshole who happened to be in my section, so I had to deal with him. I was so gaslit that I stayed for 2 years after he started screaming and being demeaning about my talent. I ended up leaving for a lot more money, and my firm now has been such a breath of fresh air because I've been here three years and have worked with one borderline asshole on one project. Everyone else has been great. Stay on those recruiters! There are nontoxic firms out there.

Same my hours are “considerably lower than where they should be” which is why I’m not being given any junior or paralegal support. I’m a lateral in a completely remote environment on pace to bill 2300 hours this year.

I regularly hear people humble ragging about billing 300 hours a month. I think they’re either lying or on coke.

Is it possible to ease back the work you do with that partner? If you enjoy working with others it may not be worth moving.

I was in a similar situation. You basically have to leave to get away from that partner

No reason to scream.
