I work at a small firm. The partners don't work very hard, they don't manage things, and they don't review my billable hours. They just look at a collections sheet every quarter.
Sometimes they give me an assignment, and I'll return it the same day. They don't even look at it for weeks. I get tiny collection bonuses, but they don't change my paycheck very much.
It's really hard to stay motivated. Working harder doesn't pay off, the work is really boring, and I"m afraid if my habits get too bad they'll just freak out and fire me one day.
Anybody have any tips to stay on task?
