Do you mean randomly, or for a holiday/birthday/celebration? My family doesn’t do gifts for the adults anymore, but my sister and I always get my parents a small but meaningful item from the both of us

I just do $100 gift cards for holidays and birthdays for my parents and nieces and nephew. I don’t buy any actual presents. My brother and I decided on a no presents rule for the two of us years ago since neither one of us care about them. We just text or call each other for holidays and birthdays.

Whatever's fitting a given year, sometimes they're cheap and other times kinda pricy. $100 pricy though, not like a new car...

We are a family with 2 kids under 3 years. Yoe : 13 - 40 lpa Yoe : 10 - 20 lpa. Watched on YouTube about the Netherlands biking culture and how it's a good place for kids. Thinking of staying long term and sending kids to Dutch school. Just beginning to apply via LinkedIn. Both of us plan to work and needed inputs on what combined salary would make sense. Would it be good to accept an opportunity if one us of us gets 60keuro and hope spouse would get an opportunity once we move there?

Just moved to a new city with a high COL for a job in a V10-20 firm. But we are still remote with no guidance on coming back. Partners conditioned my acceptance on relocating but it doesn’t seem necessary. I feel really isolated and don’t know anyone, and it’s difficult finding time to meet people obviously. I’m concerned about my mental well-being going forward. On a first year salary but live in a 1 room studio due to COL. Is this worth considering a lateral by next year? Thanks all.

I asked for a raise at my small agency, it’s my first in two years. I’ve been offered a salary bump that’s less than 10k and barely takes me into the low end of a senior AD salary range. I am going to counter but need two pieces of advice: 1. What is a good source to find / support the average salary range of a senior AD 2. What is too big of a counter? I’d like to be at 90. But if I counter with 90 I assume they will come back with less than that.

I am an analyst. To be honest, I feel like I am sinking, and everyone knows it. I was not an Econ major in college (poly Sci) , and I am new to excel. However, I feel like I am constantly thrown into the deep end, and no one wants to help me, answer my questions, or help guide me through asks. I was under the impression that this would be a teaching environment. Worst feeling when you feel stupid, and you know that everyone else thinks you are stupid too. Will prob b fired.
