So besides the boss' daughter I am the youngest one in our firm. Everyone else is 40+. My boss started the company after leaving his partnership in 2009 and I went with him. Since then he hired on another attorney, her paralegal, and a secretary all from the same office.
Since they have gotten here there is a lack of respect towards me and I know its the age difference, why do some 40+ yr olds want to listen to a 25 yr old? To make matters worse, my promotion last week my boss named me the official office manager. Any vacation times needed, it goes through him then to me to track it. If they call in sick they must call my cell by 7 am. Well this struck hard with one lady in particular and now I get nothing but attitude from her for other things that she now has to report to me.
Okay, yes she does have experience on me, however, she does not have the management education that I have. She never went to school for anything besides to be a paralegal, I have a bachelors in business management. I have also worked for my boss for almost five years, went from one crappy situation, helped him build up his own practice from almost ground zero, these other girls just came here because they didn't like their other employers.
Has anyone else encountered this? If so, what did you do? Im getting frustrated and afraid to even say one thing wrong.
