I feel like this job has crushed my confidence, has anyone else felt this way? If you have how did you regain your confidence? I don’t feel like myself. Essentially I feel like I’m treading on eggshells and afraid to say or do the wrong thing in case a misstep gets me fired. It’s causing me to not learn.

How do you deal with a boss who wants you to be an attorney paralegal secretary and records clerk all in one on over 70 plaintiffs PI cases? I’ve asked for help numerous times. I work way more hours than I should w/o extra pay. Yet I have been told my pay will be docked if I can’t do it all or even threatened to be fired. My mental/physical health is declining because it is humanely impossible to complete all these tasks. Is this normal? Do I just deal with this? Or Do I look for another job?
Unpopular opinion: I would rather be promoted “too early” and fired shortly thereafter because I didn’t perform up to expectations than be held back to “set me up for success” without getting a chance to prove myself at the next level. Does anyone else feel similarly?

Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
