They Have My Soul
Every firm has one or two partners/senior associates to be avoided at all costs. They're either mean, demanding or otherwise difficult to work for.
After a while everyone figures out who they are. And everyone gets their turn of being sucked into their vortex, but if you're lucky, you can usually escape after a few weeks/months by getting really busy on projects for other people.
Right now I've been sucked into the vortex of Lawyer X. It's been a long month of late nights and impossible projects.
Actual quote from a junior associate who's worked with this person before: "Lawyer X is Satan."
'Nuff said. #
