It is becoming increasingly aware that HR’s only role is to protect partners. No interest in the rest of us.

Never go to HR unless you have emails, voicemail, or some sort of proof to back up what you are saying.... if not they will twist everything so ultimately it is your fault. Sad but true.

If you ANYBODY thinks HR is for the employees, they are wrong. They are paid by the partners to protect the partners. If you want someone on your side, go form a Union if your US State still allows them.

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?

I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?
