My co-worker is so resentful and competitive because I was promoted over her last year which caused a demotion on her end. People in the company still go to her for things that should be for me but she rarely corrects them. Shes still involved in the company too in a way that allows her to know secrets that I should know about but never do. I technically am above her within the company but this is how things are. I just do my job and try to not let it bother me but it does. Any suggestions?

Curious: How did your promotion lead to her demotion? Is there some grading curve imposed on the legal dept? 🥴

Yeah don't just put your head down. Go build relationships and alliances across the business so people start coming to you. If you just ignore it, you will get undermined and perhaps eventually get challenged for your job.

Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court?

It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.

I heard that when Netflix hires outside counsel, it asks a series of questions to determine how credit is given at the firm selected. The goal is to ensure that the “old white hairs” at the top are not receiving/taking credit from the lawyers really doing and managing the lion’s share of the work. Some level of research shows that the real working lawyers tend to be predominantly women/POC who are essentially punished by old school origination systems. Thoughts?
