Is it time to leave? I started in late 2019, have pulled almost 20 all-nighters working, took over other peoples clients when they struggled on multiple occasions, never missed a billable hours goal, and prepared/gave training presentations for coworkers. I started a little bit before Covid and there were no bonuses given out by my firm so far in my career until this year because of it. I was passed up for my first real bonus with no explanation. Is it time?

20 all-nighters!? You need to bring this back down to a sustainable level as soon as you can. If you don't think that's possible you need to leave for your mental and physical health.

What firm do you work for?

PWC 1 is a moron. “It won’t help your resume” - actually, it will….

It’s time to leave. There are plenty of places hiring

Yeah, not NYC but still hcol

I don’t know, if you’re working all nighters that’s probably a you thing and not related to your firm. I’ve been in groups with outrageous demands and no one’s ever demanded that. No partner I’ve met has ever asked me to pull an all nighter. I’ve never pulled an all nighter ever for any reason. It’s unhealthy and really idiotic.

Wasn’t a partner, it was a SM telling me to. I’m not the only one who has had to do it in my firm either.

I know it’s early but Christmas gift idea for a partner I work under. He’s been my mentor since I joined the office as a lateral and during COVID and the crazy m&a workload, he’s advocated for me and been incredibly humane, especially as someone who suffers from some mental health issues that were exacerbated by the pandemic. He’s the main reason I’m still surviving biglaw and haven’t left. Id like to get him something nice (is in his 60s). He doesn’t drink or else would have gone the fancy
