Is a vicious cycle of the partners of partners pwn them, and once the partners made partner, they pwn us

Your time is before 2010 ah? I prefer to work with Gen Z or younger millennials because they are more open minded and willing to challenge the status quo. Those above 35yo behave like boomers. kena abused by boss will also thank boss for the learning opportunity.

Your senior is just someone with one or two more years of working experience. She is not the one paying you. Her pay might not be that great either.

But you senior is answerable for you to the manager. Donít expect her to do your work for you.

Not say ask you work like dog, but the nature of this line means there can be fires or emergencies that need to be attended to quickly. You should have an upfront conversation with your senior to align expectations whether they need to check and respond email over weekends. If you are not available, let them know, so they know not to disturb you.

Rather than them thinking you saw and will act on the email and expect it on Monday.

Other wise, it can come off as you having a poor sense of ownership or commitment.

yes, the root cause is audit margin is really low so end up squeeze those at the bottom of the food chain.

Vicious cycle because when you reach the top of the food chain, it becomes your turn to expect a lot from your juniorsÖ

When I was A1, all my friends and I agree that we will become the most awesome batch of seniors and change the culture. We will let our associates go home at 530.

Just last year we turned seniors, but.. Iím sorry itís not that simple lol. If I let my associate go home at 530 and stop working then maybe I need to stay until next day 530Ö
