Default Boomer partners

Boomer partners have lost touch with reality, and are in their high castles. Thoughts?

Duh. Not only boomers, the younger gen of 'rising stars' also have the same toxic mentality and survivorship bias. Very arrogant and expect the same unrealistic sacrifice of WLB. But even if you match their expectation, they'll always think they're better and correct.

The working culture in local firms here have lost the plot lah. Squeezing their teams for maximum billings while paying paltry amounts to associates or JPs. All for the EPs to circlejerk and brag among themselves. Even worse is accepting client lowball fees, writing off associate time, or taking on too many matters; overpromising is easy but guess who needs to slog it out over the weekends?

And they wonder why the best jump to international firms where you're treated w respect or at least paid commensurately. And why the rest leave for in house entirely.

I really think those partners should be sent for manager/communication/leadership trainings. Like for real.

FAANG, and other MNCs actually sent managers to yearly trainings and seminars. Also their performance is based on 360 review. Why legal industry so unique ah.

NUS, SMU, SUSS shd also slot in some leadership courses actually. Not full-throttle legal course. U see the modules of other faculty, they have modules on soft skills. That's why those partners are such terrible leaders. Hell already has a place reserved for them

Why dont these law firms learn from the NOC saga? It's already a projection of the future if your firm is fraught with bully, mistreatment, and toxicity.

Or is it bcoz the gahmen will not allow the B4 to collapse bcoz SG wanna be an arbitration hub? Or is it the B4 is so strong that they think they still can survive despite PR damages, just like our SG favorite shopee pee pee pee pee?
