How should I deal with a problematic supervisor? They are nitpicking on even quality work. And often, I’m getting the blame for not identifying other paralegals mistakes, when (from what I can see), the other paralegals simply get told “ohh it’s okay don’t worry”.

Should I raise this as I’m concerned about the impression my manager is leaving on the partners or will I be considered as someone who can’t deal with criticism?

On notice period and one of the partners is continuing to give me a crazy amount of work. Is it okay to push back? I don’t want to create a bad impression but just beyond caring about these deals.

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?

Venting… I had a PC reach out last week for services (commercial real estate) who proceeded to tell me that their project is going to make me the “gold standard” , so rich and etc. further they wanted me to send them a plan of everything needed for all the phases of development and an estimated cost. The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.
