As the manager, I hope you have documented your conversations with the paralegal and the receptionist. I hope you have also set expectations for them to meet and a date for their next review.

You also need to keep the owner informed. If you don’t keep the owner current, it will all land on you.

The owner must be more than slightluy incompetent themselves if no billing was done for 12 months and therefore no revenue received and it took them a year to notice.

I think I would be using my spare time to look for a possible change of employment.

Oh honey, that sounds awful! I’m sorry!

I don’t know if you’re looking for advice, or just ranting, so feel free to ignore….  but can you sit down with the owner and explain how difficult it is to work with those other two employees? Maybe he/she can then figure out a way to get them on the same page so that things can improve. I assume the owner would want to do that to benefit the business!

And I totally understand feeling bad about leaving, but sometimes you’ve just gotta do what’s best for yourself and your mental health!

“The owner must be more than slightluy incompetent themselves if no billing was done for 12 months and therefore no revenue received and it took them a year to notice.”

I totally agree with this.  I hope to eventually become a veterinarian, but am getting a bachelor’s in business because I want to open my own practice and be able to run it effectively.  

I’ve also worked in the past for a company that was failing.  I suspect that because your coworkers know the place is in some deep doo-doo that they’ve stopped caring.  They’ll do the bare minimum to keep their jobs as long as the doors are open.  When I thought there was hope that the company would turn around, I went from a 40 to 50 hour work week.  When that not only failed to bring me any more money, but I took a 10% pay cut, and I was being pushed to work even longer hours, I said, “Screw it.”
