Advise on looking older? I work in tech so it’s not really appropriate to be fully suited up/business professional each day and I don’t wear makeup regularly.

had anyone leave a job after 1 year? I am with my company for a year, the pay and benefits are great but the people are crazy. My direct boss is a people pleaser. She is nice and never says no to anything, making my job hard. she started to be my boss since March this year, the impact on me is significant even though she is nice to me overall. I am thinking to leave but thought 1 year may be too short on my resume. Any advice? Should I wait until March for my bonus and then leave?

I make $240k in a corporate strategy role, was offered a senior manager role at Strategy&, should I accept? Assuming median year end bonus would be a ~20% total comp increase.

How do you react when someone announces they are pregnant? Are you happy for them or are you neutral? do you ever comment negatively? I personally don't agree w the decision to have kids and therefore usually ignore social media pregnancy announcements and am neutral if I see them in person (like I don't say anything rude, I just don't say anything at all). Am I being too harsh?

Furthermore, do you still get baby gifts for people, even if you don't support the idea of them having a baby?
