Lateraled to a firm about 7 months ago and have been really unhappy. It’s not what I was told at all while interviewing, I’m getting administrative work as a mid-level, and it’s impossible to get a response from anyone at the firm whether work-related or office-related. I’m hesitant to lateral again given the threat of an upcoming recession. Any advice?

I just lateraled from a firm that told me I couldn’t avoid administrative work, no matter where I went. I am now at another firm and have not done a single second of admin work. Paralegals and admin assistants are on high alert to help the associates with anything (proactively).
