is it unreasonable for my breaking point with my job to be that my boss hung up on me?

this is after months of me feeling not respected and supported

No, leave. That’s insanely rude. But also first make sure it wasn’t an accident.

like

they hung up and then sent me an email describing the subject of the call later so not an accident

i think they just didn’t know how to answer the question i asked about an assignment given so hung up instead of saying “i’m not sure i’ll circle back

Are you SURE you weren’t just disconnected? I’ve had some really rude friendly fire but would absolutely be livid if a superior hung up on me. Never happened in 12 years.

like

if we were disconnected why wouldn’t he follow up and say the call was disconnected? that’s what any person that gives a shit would do

Maybe something happened out of the blue. Maybe he was in transit? If you feel strongly that he was disrespecting you, maybe have a candid chat with him about how you feel and to make sure you are not just reading too much into things?

What if they were just connected and decided email was easier than calling back?

I wouldn't quit over just this but if you already wanted to quit, just go for it

i would’ve really appreciated a “sorry we got disconnected” since the ask was already ridiculous to me

agreed it alone isn’t enough to quit but it was too tense of a time (year end) to not be thoughtful of perception and honestly fuck that guy you’re right i just hate it here lmaoooo i don’t need an excuse

There’s one white, female associate on my floor who I’m friendly with, however, whenever she talks to me she always finds a way to bring up race/diversity. Not in a bad way, it’s mostly just complaining about how poor the diversity is at our firm or bringing up her diversity-related law school extracurriculars. I’ve seen & heard her interact with (white) associates and partners a million times, even in convos complaining about firm issues, without ever raising these topics. Justifiably annoyed?

I'm interested in tech and thought this was a possible to foot in the door for future financial roles in tech.

Was wondering if anyone has thoughts on such roles or...is it a dead end approach.
