What is there to lose?

Set expectations.

I don't know why it's so hard. I realize p1 you have to jump up and down and up and down and tell everyone.

I really want to get that manager promotion. I am an "old" senior, and it's time.

I'd recommend as part of your regular feedback sessions to ask manager, coach and RP about what areas you can work on to get to the next level. That should indicate to them your desire for promotion.

I’m in my 11th year at a boutique plaintiff’s firm. The name partner I work under is great in a lot of ways. I ln general it could be worse. But the guy is a baby. I’m certainly no slacker. In fact I’m excellent at my job. But the guy is obsessed with people being in the office before 9am. No matter what’s on/not on the calendar or what I’m doing personally. Today I got in at 9:12am and apparently he’d been ranting and raving over my whereabouts. When is it time to not answer to this crap?
