Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization.

Are there any attorney roles that are collaborative? I’m a transactional associate and there are aspects of my job that I really enjoy, but I can’t stand how solitary it is.

I’m wondering if there’s a legal option I haven’t considered

Any tips for an associate assigning work to more junior associates? I’m a mid/senior, and have a few clients. I’d like to loop in another associate on one larger matter but I’m getting some resistance.

I had a pretty diplomatic “no thanks” from one associate that expressed an interest in the practice area and I think there’s anxiety about overextending when there's partners’ work to do.
