Question Incompetent Seniors

Has anyone experienced any incompetent seniors in their team?

I define incompetence on many levels:

1. Went to a university that is not in the LPA

2. Not Singapore called but still pretend to know and do Singapore law

3. Delegate everything downline but clearly in no position to supervise and will dominate everyone downline

4. Claim credit despite all the above and pretend to boss that all is done by him

5. When challenged by juniors he will act like a victim and allege bullying

6. Inflate hours and pretend to be v bz

I am tearing my hair out over a senior in my team. I am from an international law firm and for some lame reason this dude manage to get a permanent position. My boss and HR are purposely turning a blind eye to this despite it is shattering team morale, because this dude is of a minority race and they want to be seen to be diverse

Pls advise me what to do.

I can only say u deserve it. That is why i refuse to go to a non local firm. I grew up in a local firm and had many opportunities to go to international firms but stayed put and am now a partner in the same local firm. I am the master of my own land. When you go to international law firms this is wat u get. You want to get paid better but you should accept the other ****.

What do u expect. Of cos they will try to hire all these sorts and super wayang foreigners. I bet your HR is not local either and therefore will not appreciate where u r coming from and may in fact feel that theres something wrong w u. If your boss is local my diagnosis is that he or she has ptsd. His or her previous boss must have been some angmoh n being colonialised is ingrained in him or her.

My suggestion is quit.

Some lawyers are employed not because they are good lawyers, but because they are good rainmakers (or their parents are)

I am talking about a senior associate.

Not a rainmaker. He is also not gandhis son so there is no white horse (pardon the pun not intended) connection.

Excuse me. Are you THAT senior associate? If so hello - you are no bloody rainmaker. You are an eyesore. Please get out of our team and our land.

Xe sounds like a pretty solid choice. Don't be racist or ableist. Don't assume xis gender either. It's basic courtesy to educate oneself on pronouns. I shouldn't have to tell one of my peers this. It's quite frankly disgusting to have to keep repeating this like as though you're hearing this for the first time. It's also not hard to show some basic respect for a fellow human being.

We need more diversity in the workplace. I am fully behind the various "bring your whole self to work" schemes that many international firms adhere to. Our local firms could learn a thing or two from such schemes. It is 2020. We should not have to pretend that we are acting out Mad Men in real life.

I know this phrase gets used a lot ironically these days. But I am completely serious when I say that your feelings mean nothing when you are so overprivileged. The need for more diverse representation in the workplace cannot be underestimated. I hope your firm continues to remain committed to diversity and greater representation of minorities across the spectrum.

Our local firms have a long way to go. But I believe we are slowly and steadily making progress in this regard.

I'm disappointed to read the other responses above. With the greatest possible respect, I urge each one of the preceding posters to do better. You appear to have no idea about the privilege each of you wield so carelessly.
