I started like that, then slowly but surely I’ve been becoming the seniors I hated, sending vague emails with no deadlines (under expectations they’ll do asap). I wanted to be the cool and friendly senior who helps people learn how to do this job and doesn’t interfere with time away, now I’m crusty, tired and ready to fuck up your weekend bc the partner just unraveled my plans

Funny. I had a partner like this. Every time she asked me for something she was like “could you please help me on this? No worries if you are busy. Just let me know and I can do it.”

I do a middle thing of that whereas other seniors in my firm legitimately write to juniors to do something within the next 55 minutes where they have not been involved on the matter.

I see you, OP! Hahaha. No hard feelings though. I'll wait until I become a senior partner. Kidding! Lol

I'm having some trouble with my manager.

He's always asking me to work late, but when I do, he doesn't give me any credit for it.

I feel like he only cares about the results, not how much effort I put in. Should I say something to him?

I found out my manager for the last five months was never planning to stick around for long and his manager knew it and was arranging an internal transfer for him. I did not know this and now my own manager’s lack of interest in the group’s projects makes complete sense to me. It burns me a lot to realize that many times when he and I went into a group presentation and I found he had not done 100% of his homework, it was because he wasn’t as invested. Feeling used now. Unsure what to do.

Woof. I’m a senior associate at a new firm working with another senior in a different group. I don’t know his particular year, but I’m senior enough to know he’s either +/- 1 year from me. But damn this dude thinks he’s a partner or something, giving me tasks to do (rather than getting it from the partner in my own group) and is pretty condescending about it all. I get we’re one firm working together but wow. How should I handle this?

Is there anyway to safely name and shame individuals who have committed workplace abuse & harassment ?
My lawyer had advised me not to speak on my situation at first but is now saying I could share something if I wanted to. I've had a few significant career/personal harmful experiences with individuals in high positions of power at well known companies. It seems insane to me that these people continue to be allowed to work and control many people's careers without being held accountable.

Got braids. You'd think I literally got a face transplant from how shook my coworkers are. I would say over 10 people have stopped me to ask about them or comment on them and I've been at work for maybe 2 1/2 hours. It's all been positive, but am I wrong for still finding it annoying? They don't lose their minds when Sarah gets bangs or whatever so I wish they could keep that same energy.
