Can you help me evaluate this? It's for an L61 role at Microsoft. I'm currently L5 at Amazon. Offered: $27 ipa base, 5% joining bonus, $120k stocks with 4 years to vest. The recruiter says this is the final offer.

Vacation ideas for Thanksgiving? Six of us (ages 25 to 60) and everyone’s vaccinated. Thought about going to the Caribbean but I guess it’s the wet/hurricane season at that time.

What is the best way to select a developer or agency? Submitted a project on upwork and got tons of proposals. Would love some advice on the recommended way to qualify them. Everyone seems to have very similar estimation, experience and a great deal of projects done in portfolio.
Consultants with dogs, how do you manage taking care of your pup or share this responsibility with someone? Want to get one with my partner but know it’s a long term commitment, not just a covid thing. He says he’d be up for taking on more of the doggy-care if I do end up traveling again. He doesn’t travel for a living but does work 8-6 locally and got some flexibility to work from home or modified hours pre-covid. Looking to get advice from dog owners here on whether you think we should do it!
