Microsoft Salary range in NYC? Project management role requiring 3 YOE with technical background
Need some advice. I was seeing someone, and the relationship ended up being extremely toxic. They were narcissistic & gaslit me into falling more & more in love. We haven’t really spoken since. I just joined the firm & they are now a colleague. I am worried that I will get dragged into this mess again or they will be a nuisance to my work. I’m planning on keeping my distance, but with my luck we’ll be on a project together. Any advice for a narc-ex at work?

I have a new client who, I think, got bad legal advice from someone else she consulted with. From the information I have, there is no way she gets to the numbers I do. I work in a pretty small legal community. How do I address this delicately? My client is hung up on “but that’s not that X said” even though I’ve explained it multiple times and way. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
How do you deal with getting a waiver signed by current client? Pretty junior and have no direct contact with the client. Does it make sense to do it through the main partner on the deal? If so, does it effectively mean I’m giving notice?
