My entire team (I’m Senior with most tenure) is terrified of our Manager, who is confrontational, rude, and stand-offish. Everyone including the other seniors on my engagement are scared to talk to this manager and you can hear in their voice they’re nervous. Funny thing is is once the partner gets on the phone the manager is the nicest most bubbly person in the firm! So two-faced.

If this is true that all seniors feel this way the best recommendation would be for each of you to speak with your respective counselor and/or senior manager (if you have one) so the team is aware there is an issue. The worst thing would be to spread rumors before discussing it with the proper channels because that could reflect poorly on you. Just my two cents though! Hopefully it gets resolved so you have a better working environment.

I have a senior exactly like this thank goodness I’m no longer on that team

Ugh sorry to hear. I’ve worked with a number of people that I’ve diagnosed with multiple personality disorder (more so in EY audit but a few here too), which I’ve noticed is triggered when someone above them is present; what a coincidence! It makes me want vomit. This is a tough one but is there any way you can try to get the partner to join additional calls? What if you mentioned to said partner that things seem to run much “more smoothly” when said partner is on call and just see what their response is?
