Is it normal to be worried about getting yelled at or fired every time you have your weekly touch base with the partner you work under? Feel like it’s not and don’t know why I put up with it anymore.

As a manager with a CPA. You should never be scared of getting fired. If you know your stuff, you can always get another job. Also helps to have adequate savings. And added value. Only true truths in life. Dead 💀 and taxes. Put yourself in a position to Operate with confidence.

Sorry OP... I take this advice back. No amount of confidence can help you here... 😳 your situation is on another different level of insane . You just need to leave that team ASAP. For your mental health alone. God speed and God bless.

Do you get yelled at often? I have this feeling but it’s usually just because I’m too hard on myself. I shouldn’t feel this way because I never get yelled at. But I still feel it

What firm are you mind asking?

No, she shouldn’t be yelling at you. That’s ridiculous. Has she expressed what she wants you to do differently (development points)? Has she given you performance reviews, or informal feedback? I’m just wondering whether she actually knows what she wants from you, or if she’s just mean?

100% get a new job ASAP. That’s not normal, realistically not legal, and you shouldn’t tolerate it.

Keep putting out applications until you get fired. Collect unemployment for as long as you like until you get another job. That manager should explain things in a learning manner.

If you haven’t got fired yet it’s most likely a power and control tactic. Using fear to get you into compliance. Doesn’t sound healthy at all. Reach out to your mentor for advice and see what you can arrange.

Don’t leave because of her. Sounds like you are a long term player here. She needs an intervention - see my comments from yesterday.

No matter how poor someone performs, yelling is not going to make it better. Don’t even know about your performance, but either way you should run.

Genuine question: why do people bill over 2100 in this market? I can see how wanting to be a “good associate” could get you to agree to go slightly above your hours requirement, but don’t understand how people end up billing 2500+ hours… do you really think you’d get fired if you said no to more work? Is someone legitimately forcing you to work that much? Don’t see how extra bonuses are worth it either.
