They didn’t want me on their engagement anymore ? (And in the case of this particular client who had champagne taste & tuna fish budget, I was neither sad nor offended)

That my review would have been better if I had just sat on the Director’s lap during a training event/exercise instead of opting for the floor. 🙄

Wtf did I just read

Once a client threw a notebook at me. So there’s that.

funny

Why? Did you make a bad joke?

One time I was depressed but I didn’t know it at the time. My client asked me if everything was okay, I seemed “off”.

But nothing like the first 2 comments 😂 those are harsh

Me and my SM, both accounting background.. heard from Client that the working session would have been easier if we thought in terms of debits and credits..

Might have just made myself look bad, but I’d have done the same thing over again. Started a new client (finally thank God) and was supposed to be the only 1 staffing it. Found out an overseas person was allocated. Reached out to manager/partner - they didn’t realize and both made bad comments about them. So I asked… if I had to work with them. They planned for me to do the engagement alone anyway, and why would I want them if they clearly don’t either?

Toxic partner who is tech illiterate just chewed me out because I didn’t know why an email from a paralegal didn’t make it’s way to the client. It’s been the partner’s case for two months, I’ve never heard of the client, and had not seen the email from the paralegal because I wasn’t cc’d. It took every ounce of self control to keep from telling her I’ve already accepted a partner position at another firm but I just couldn’t forego seeing the look on her face when I tell her on Friday.

However, the Sr. Manager that leads the group& reports to this leader, seems to be micro-managing me- delegating my tasks which I am capable of & trying to cut me off of my own meetings
