My partner-level bosses were pretty great. Fun personalities, yet still very professional. We're very encouraging and committed to developing employee talent. I know not all partners were like that, but mine were.
Staff is very gossip oriented. Rumors started over nothing or simple jealousy. Very catty, dog-eat-dog. Very hard to know who your friends were. People actively trying to get one another fired.
