BSC1, feel like that’s a widely used WF jargon too.

Lazy manager does not want to coach you. He/she already coached the other senior and wants you to learn from him/her.

I had a manager like that who would say be like this person and not give real feedback. It basically means I don’t know how to mentor or provide actionable feedback to help you so just sync up with my favorite on the team to improve.

I feel as learning opportunity and sometimes I feel am I not working up to his expectations ? Not sure because weekly connect and comments says different things.

I’m 8 and a half months in at a new firm (commercial lit- just me and the partner). Honestly, I’m billing maybe 2 hours a day at this point. When interviewing, the partner didn’t set a billables requirement but mentioned averaging 5 a day. The work just isn’t coming in. I’m not crazy to be seeking a new job at this point right??

Quick vent: fiancé and I were going to put an offer in on an apartment we loved before all of this Covid stuff happened but changed that plan to rent to buy starting Aug to be safer. The sellers just told us they accepted someone else’s offer to buy. We, especially me, were in love with the apartment but we were too risk adverse to buy now bc if Covid and fiancé working at a startup that had layoffs in the beginning. Just sad bc we’ve been looking for two years and this was the perfect place.
