And, any time one of you takes a vacation, your group will automatically have to find people to cover down for both of you.

As an additional consideration, any time you both want to take vacation, you will both need coverage, which may prove tricky depending on the size of the group.

Same firm? It depends. Is the firm aware of it and still gave you an offer?

There are multiple downsides - you might not be able to be assigned to the same case, there might be some resentment from your peers if there’s even a hint of a conflict of interest (even if it’s not true), and if you both plan on staying at this firm long term, your opportunities for growth might be limited.

Agree with other posters. No way this goes well.

How big is the group though? It could be fine if it’s a really big group.

Entering second year and could probably avoid working with these people once these deals are done. Is there any hope for me? How do I set boundaries?

As a Junior I have this internal battle of being like a monkey and doing exactly what I’m told to do even if it seems wrong vs. actually using my brain to point out errors in instructions or make judgment calls (on low-level things) but risking being wrong and looking dumb or making the midlevel feel like I’m trying to one-up them. Often times, the partner’s comments validate what I was thinking but I still don’t want to alienate any associates or develop a bad rep.

Anyone else have this issue?
