Working on getting a second monitor. I'm the most junior associate here by four years (small firm with about 25 lawyers), so I had to put in the request for it and then wait to see if someone senior wanted it. Should know by the end of the week.
The notion that any law firm would deny an attorney a second monitor baffles me. Having two monitors makes everyone more productive.
Law firm admin tasks are run by people who don't really see the business side of the operation. To them, its 300 dollars out the door from their budget. They don't realize we are expensive ass cows that milk 3grand in revenue per day.
Also, treat people like you are their boss because you are. Don't ask for a monitor, tell them to get you one. Be polite, but don't form it as a question.
If biglaw wasn't retarded they'd outfit every associate with multifuction laserjet/scanner/fax/copier in their house and a new Lenovo laptop. Instead we have a fulltime diversity coordinator. lol .
