Senior Managers and Directors

I have a new manager working with me who is surprisingly not great at the role. We’re in industry and she’s worked at the company for a long time but in a different capacity. (Cont)

TBH you’re probably the problem. Just because you are an SM doesn’t mean you no longer have to teach other employees.

I can see why you'd think this. But also I've seen many people who have a different working style and work ethic /attitude and they will never work the same as you'd expect. Because only skills you can teach and technical knowledge but not the personality.

Her writing skills are not great and she doesn’t have any sense of urgency in completing projects. I have always liked her personally so now getting to know her work product is a bit of a shock. I am struggling with not wanting to work with her anymore. I think I can maneuver her off of my projects somewhat effectively but also feel somewhat guilty about giving up on her. I just find her style of work so off putting that I don’t even want to coach her. Is that awful? It feels awful. 😬

I’m currently 28 weeks and just had a phone interview for a new job; throughout the course of the conversation I didn’t bring up that I’m pregnant. The hiring manager said the next step would be to come in for an in-person interview, and now I’m worried that this will somehow hurt my chances (even though I know it’s technically illegal to discriminate against women for being pregnant). Has anyone else had experience with this? Should I tell them now that I am pregnant?

I’m about to graduate law school (I literally have a week left) and I just accepted a Law Clerk position at a family law firm. I’m in CA and the bar was just postponed to September 9/10. The bar prep schedule I had planned for now has to be changed and I was hoping to get some input on how to change it. I’ll be doing a Kaplan bar prep course that’s live online and they are keeping the original schedule that goes from May 26 to July 16. I will be working at the firm for about a month [continued]
