You are responsible for your economic fate.
Do well you win big.
Do not do well and you will be held responsible.
That's part of the reason why losing a job hurts your personal brand. Partners, not only associates, currently are experiencing that ordeal.
This could change. Distressed Uber has pointed to its "cult of the individual" as a negative in its organizational culture.
If Uber does soften that and other aspects of its culture - and goes on to thrive financially - capitalism in America could change. At least a bit. That includes the culture of large law firms.
Other organizations, including BigLaw, would get it: Team work is the platform for long-term profitability and positive branding in public affairs. Every member of the team creates value. Not only partners and rainmakers.
The challenge, of course, is for Uber to have the determination to find the right exit ramp from the past. And figure out a fresh set of organizational values.
It's in the self-interest of American capitalism to monitor this journey. Members of BigLaw might assign their human resources department to make sense of what is going on and report the implications back to the managing partner.
