Is anyone else just weirdly neutral about this job? My reaction when someone asks me if I like my job is the same reaction I would have if someone asked me if I like my garbage disposal. Just totally neutral.

My group at my firm is great by biglaw standards. It’s still unpredictable and demanding, but I have not experienced any of the horror stories others have. I like the people I work with, which motivates me to do a good job and be helpful, I just don’t really care about the work at all.

I’m planning on leaving my firm at the end of the year.

Hi all,

My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.

What is this? This is normal?

When you tell your manager you are unhappy and they are excited that you are putting your notice and don't try and make any changes b/c the new person/persons they are lining up will just cleanup and make it better.

Then, they get here and you are left to train them on everything you do and your manager keeps saying "I owe you an apology" because they didn't realize how taxing and mind wrecking most processes you handled were... welcome to corporate
