I feel like I should wear a shirt to work that says “read your assistants emails before asking questions”. One of my bosses asked for a travel change and I sent them the times and prices per class types.
Their next three emails? Answered one question per email. So after they said time I asked which class, they asked the prices (which I copy pasted from the previous message) and then they asked if the prices were less for the other flights, and then they chose one. Five hours later. READ!

Can someone explain to me why biglaw firms don’t “review up” and have junior/mid level associates evaluate senior associates? I understand partners have no interest in hearing the minions gripe, but wouldn’t it be valuable to know if your senior associates—seeking to enter your partnership are good managers and not complete a**holes? I’ve had so many projects mismanaged by clueless senior associates lately and it seems like juniors/mid levels bear the brunt of it, but there’s no recourse.

Man this Bowl is filled with some angry mid-levels. We get it, this job was hard for you, but it is for juniors now, too. Stop punching down.

I don’t think the juniors are entitled, they just want to share in their firms’ wealth. Surely any salary increases for the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 would easily pay for themselves through billable hours.

Advice re: office crush

I’m a junior and he’s a senior in the same group with ~20 people. He doesn’t supervise me, but we aren’t at our largest office, so we might still bump into each other awkwardly if things go wrong. We are both single.

I’ve been holding my feelings back hard. (He still invites me to group/office outings, so pretty sure he senses nothing weird.) I know it’s hard to find someone like him though, and I wonder if I really should just silently kill my feelings for him?

Never Google “Supra or infra” again!

I admit, as a fifth year big law associate it has taken me way too long to find a good memory devise for whether Supra or infra means “see above” or “see below.” But I found it and now I’ll share it with my other Latin-vocabulary-challenged fishies.

“Supra” has the word “up” in it. As in: see up! Boom. Done. You’re welcome.

Woof. I’m a senior associate at a new firm working with another senior in a different group. I don’t know his particular year, but I’m senior enough to know he’s either +/- 1 year from me. But damn this dude thinks he’s a partner or something, giving me tasks to do (rather than getting it from the partner in my own group) and is pretty condescending about it all. I get we’re one firm working together but wow. How should I handle this?
