Partner: does not copy me on any emails
Partner: does not save anything to client folder and has secretary do it for him
Partner: does not send anyone a heads up when something important happens despite knowing that no one else could possibly know what’s going on in his case

Has anyone else had a mentor (assigned to them by the Company) who seemed to have it out for you? I mean downright sabotage to make you look bad left and right. I didn’t realize it at first.

Later I found out she had tried for the exec assistant role and they didn’t choose her, they wanted me instead.
