Crying is normal. Hating your career is not.

You can’t complain, if you’re also going to be complacent about it.

Don’t expect to change others. I’ve been in that situation before, let myself complain and be upset for a while (probably too long), and in the end decided/had to change myself in the situation because the situation (and people) were not my responsibility to change.

Set a goal, make a productive plan, work towards it, and get out. It won’t happen over night, but nothing is permanent. You have choices, you just need to work a bit to make the options appear more clearly. You’ll get out of this, but you have to do it for yourself

What do you do if the partner who hired you is nice in social settings but awful to work for? And you can’t seem to escape from working for that partner. This partner doesn’t respond to your emails for critical issues that you need input on, doesn’t return your phone calls and voicemails and throws you under the bus in front of the client to blame you for her mistakes. The seniors are too busy. Just joined this firm so lateraling isn’t a viable option.
