You do you. When you’re done with what you need to do, wave goodbye and get on with your life. Someone else’s crazy isn’t your crazy. Wait another 6 months, overtime girl will burn out and quit.

@pwc2 If she wants to he a workaholic, that is her choice, but she forces her choice on her teams. I used to think she was the perfect PA employee, but then i realized everyone who works for her regularly has quit. She drives talent away.

I am not sure about the team environment. Are the partners encouraging this or they also realize this is not sustainable? Maybe someone can talk to her?

I worked for a manager who consistently stayed until 5:00am for about two months

Try to get work on a different team. Talk to your scheduler about your concerns with your personal life. Stay in your lane

People quit regularly that is not just on her

When you tell your manager you are unhappy and they are excited that you are putting your notice and don't try and make any changes b/c the new person/persons they are lining up will just cleanup and make it better.

Then, they get here and you are left to train them on everything you do and your manager keeps saying "I owe you an apology" because they didn't realize how taxing and mind wrecking most processes you handled were... welcome to corporate

Hi Fishes,

There's some rumours about One-time bonus paid in two installments between now and July. This is to control the attrition. Seems like it would add to the fixed CTC during the next hike cycle, and hence hike would be on the current + bonus. Anyone has any clue on this ? What could be the criteria or eligibility for this. Is it best to discuss with senior mgmt upfront ?

Here’s a “what would you do.” You first go work at a top-notch litigation shop, but leave after about a year because hours are abusive (2,400-2,700/yr average). Second firm promises better WLB and great exp, but you get stuck on big case with bad partners and nothing but doc review and 2nd-chairing for next two years. Also, that case alone is 130-160 hrs/month, so can’t really do much else that’s significant in addition. Do you stick it out until the bad case is done, or move one last time?
