They have managed a difficult project and navigate success even after the entire team quit. They chose to stick around and didn’t give up That sounds like a great business case for promotion

I’m no manager. I only create bad managers 🤣

Got it! Goal for next year: make my team miserable, have them quit, blame client for being terrible, and be last man standing so I can get promoted. That’s def much more doable than doing the right things. Appreciate the shortcut!

Previous firm culture was all about the people, new firm is all about being the best... I knew the stereotype here was about being *the best*, but didn’t realize that people who buy into firm culture/values just repeatedly talk about how “we’re the best,” and, “we work REALLY hard bc we’re the best!!” I’m trying to commit, but end every internal call where I hear these words feeling like 🥴😶🙄. At least at the old firm there were relationships to back up the people piece and make it relatable.

Ladies, I’m posting here so that the person involved won’t see this post. Last year, I worked under this one first year senior guy. One day, he told me that to him, his staff are like puppies, if they pee on the floor (aka mess up on something) then he gotta be the one cleaning up then proceed to call me one of his puppies. Is it normal that I’m offended by this analogy and considered it condescending? English wasn’t my first language so not sure if this is acceptable by American culture.
