Does this look like mold to you guys? Complained to the landlord there was a musty smell coming from the vents when the AC came on and they had a crew come clean them. After that the air coming out seemed to smell clean, but the smell has returned. Picture is from today.

I’ve had similar issues likely the ducts aren’t completely sealed and is letting in attic (or basement) air. Easy fix - just grab some foil tape from Home Depot and make sure all the seems are sealed up.

if you see black spots go fix it. Chlorine is the weapon here! Also problem could be elsewhere like under the sync etc. look into dark and unreachable placss, most likely thats where this bad boy livss!

Is that inside the duct? My ducts are all metal on the inside. Yours looks like insulation and is that a 2x4 in the corner? Shouldn’t the insulation be in the outside of the duct, not the inside? The black stuff does look like mold and not just dust/dirt.

This is another pic of the duct hole that leads to the primary. Seems pretty dirty.

Which one should I go for?

1. Oracle - 18.3 LPA fixed + probable bonus (I may or may not get)

Amadeus is also giving joining bonus of 75k. Amadeus is paying more, may give better hikes too, but I am finding it hard to let go off Oracle's brand name on my resume even if it's means around 2L less over an year. I am planning to work for atleast 3 years in my next company.

What would you have done in my place? Should I go for Oracle or Amadeus?

I have over 12 years in B2B sales/sales management experience along with a graduate degree.

I have read all the books but want some hands on experience on the property management side. How could I best leverage my skills for a role in this, and what should my expectations be for negotiation in compensation?
