How common is it for juniors to blow deadlines?
I see tons of posts about the worst things a young associate can do, but is it really that common to make glaring errors repeatedly? Are they communicating and asking for more time or simply ghosting people? What types of smaller errors are mid-levels so used to seeing that they just write it off as learning, especially when it comes to drafting and to details? I guess I’m just curious about the norm across firms.

I averaged 250+ billables for Q1. Took a vacation in April and since being back, work has been pretty chill (~35/week) and I havent taken any new work. However, I am finding myself not very productive and the smallest things are taking me way longer than they should. Cant get myself to do these things but then that makes me anxious. Feeling stuck. Has anyone else experienced a similar situation and what did you do? I’m a junior associate in corporate.

Lateraled to a team that is structured differently than my former team. My last team was top heavy (3 partners:1 associate). My new team is the opposite (1 partner:4 associates). I’m assuming the work is there because the firm probably wouldn’t allow a partner to have that many associates otherwise. I’m having a difficult time ramping up. I’ve talked to the partner, who said not to worry about it, but my bonus is tied to hours (need 140 hours/mo until December, so just mildly panicked).
