How petty are y’all professionally?
I had this one person chew me out for not being responsive enough, so now I set a timer to force myself to wait even longer to respond 😈

Not petty at work. I’m not a good person. I just don’t want to waste any seconds of my life thinking about people like that.

Any advice on maximizing a boomerang? I left less than a year ago, but I want to go back.

I'm a stub year. Drafted something for a pretty big matter; it required knowing the law and the industry very well and I gave my earnest effort; a senior associate in charge edited my draft and said it looked really good. We sent it off to a partner, but they basically re-wrote the whole thing and probably spent more time editing than the time we spent writing it...

Senior associates and partners, do you get annoyed when you have to rewrite an associate's work?

I'm a stub and I feel like I'm being given too much responsibility! I am happy to get substantive work (makes me feel like a "real" lawyer) but then I see that my senior associate is swamped and barely editing my "work product" and it is getting submitted (I use the quotes to comment on its quality, since there never seems to be a template or similar work product I can use as an exemplar and I have to create it out of thin air). I get people are busy but let's not trust me just yet, ok??
