I am sitting in an office right now watching the weather get increasingly foul as hurricane Isabell roles into DC. I am waiting on comments on a short document delivered to a partner hours ago.
Young associates quickly become accustomed to the ability of partner to ignore them until the last minute, which usually results in wasted time, high levels of stress, mistakes, late nights (that would have been unnecessary with minimal time management from superiors), a generally soul crushing experience and now, apparently, risking one's life fighting through a hurricane.
I can't wait to read next year's Vault Report on law firm. "They made stay at work until the hurricane hit," said one disillusioned associate.
I would appreciate suggestions on new career paths for a JD degree.
