Spend more time doing recruiting if you have a problem with talent. Or take a step back and realize that when you were a new staff you didn’t know everything either

Maybe give them some guidance? Or maybe this genrration actually understands work/life balance?

@AS1: Nah...it's easier and much more fun to assume the worst. I'm sure it also gives the previous posters a smug sense of superiority. 😂

Seniors complaining about staff performance is not a new thing. The problem is seniors don't realize how much they sucked as a staff, and they think the new class is inferior...this always happens, I even went through this phase.

@AS1, I wish the best of luck cause wherever you go, chances are it’s the same case everywhere. They are STAFF for a reason.... not everyone develops and learn at the same pace. Be realistic, if obviously they are like a 4 year staff and never promoted, then yes there is a problem and usually those ppl get weeded out

Man I was just trying to vent hahaha I do spend a lot of time coaching and teaching people so not just writing people off from the get go, so simmer down. Just a LOT of people that aren’t willing to be coached and get attitudes when getting review comments. Trust me there are definitely super star staff that I don’t hesitate to recognize. Sorry to start a shit storm 😂

@SC1 the coffee and food runs are not enough to justify a $60k+ salary and a huge hit to budgets everywhere, year-round. It’s frustrating coming from a small firm where people actually recognized that the non-contributors affect your take home salary and the partners’ bottom lines. At the midsize regional firm I’m at now, people can get by two whole years without understanding audit at all, and without really even trying

I have staff that constantly misses check boxes if they were not checked in the system, misses numbers here and there. Gave him feedback about self-review. The next thing I get was return with check boxes left blank...

I work at a boutique (currently ~14 bankers and 10 back office roles). Joined in august. Since august, 3 senior bankers (MD / VP) 1 HR director, and now 2 analysts have left for great opportunities. To be honest I’m happy and like my role, plus it’s too early to think about switching firms already. I am now the only analyst left, we have another one joining in January. Any advice on how I can leverage this for comp discussions at the end of the year?
