Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.

I told my managers. I was pretty straightforward with the situation and how I felt about the toxicity. They talked to the guy who was making me feel that way and eventually got him transferred out because there has been other reports of him being that way.

I have tried talking directly and sympathetically with the guy, seeking common ground and places where we don't impinge. That worked about 50%.

I’ve been practicing for 6 years in-house at a media company (was a startup when I joined and is now more established), straight out of law school. Due to the small nature of our team (3 legal members), I have been involved in all areas of our business and even advise c-suite frequently about legal risks. I received a promotion, with another title bump on the horizon this year. I have an opportunity to go to a start-up media company as the sole attorney. Anyone else have experience doing this?

Hi again. Some of you suggested I get a CIPP to show my interest in IP/Privacy law (I’m the one stuck in civil lit)..

It costs $1,200 + the license exam is another $500. Feels like a lot but then maybe not if it helps my future goals. Would love your insight(s) again. Thank you from the bottom of my sad heart.
