Dood 2k for a laptop bag?? Does it also complete decks for you while your laptop is stored in it?

It all depends on your personal preference. I'm a big fan of canvas bags like Filson. There are some nice leather briefs out there as well. Tumi is great too if you like the look/utility. I would just be weary about spending that much money on an article that sees a lot of wear and tear, unless you're getting a lifetime guarantee of some sort

That's my guess as well hence my <2k limit. Assume that would be post tax at best, and a reasonable upgrade price.

What's your anticipated theoretical bonus? I may only make a high 3 figure bonus this year

Ha, sorry but misery loves company, looks like all the big 4 are going cheap this year

Yea our pool won't be fully funded

Dang, hoping you all are getting some generous raises 🙏🏻

I work in fs in NYC, not too much travel and a big fan of leather. Anything on the cheaper side is generally bonded leather or very cheap looking (craftsmanship).

Look at Bally, LV, Saddleback, Dunhill for leather

Good point on the leather comment. Given the conservative nature of FS, canvas probably won't fly either. That being said, I've ruined leather shoes darting into NYC subways so it's not foolproof. Tumi is looking to be a pretty viable option

You are going to spend 2k on a bag ?

While it looks nice, I find leather to be way too heavy. Plus it will get majorly scuffed if you travel a lot.

Over call she said the manager who agreed for 9.5+ is not from hr department and giving this much hike is against company policy. Later she said to add 50k JB and 100k RB. What should I do now?

After getting promoted in Feb 2020 (lol fml) I designed and implemented a significant piece of data infrastructure that is beyond what’s expected of someone at my level. In 2021, I was not recognized for this accomplishment and a guy who knows nothing about the technology was promoted over me. It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?
