Having a hard time getting acclimated to my new firm. I came from a small firm where the training was more straightforward. This new firm has me on an engagement with a manager and the manager is less than helpful. The training has been less than adequate and I don’t feel like I’m getting anything done. I completely obliterated the budget it seems like based off of the schedule they put me on. I just need to vent and let anyone who is a senior associate and up. Help your new hires.
