One thing I’ve done is to go on Etsy and find some fun/funny laptop/water bottle stickers. Think about a somewhat inside joke from the campaign. Depending on what it is you may be able to find something ready to go. Or, so many of the sellers and artisans are more than happy to do a custom job for a reasonable amount

Why not just divide the celebration budget evenly and give everyone gift cards as a thank you?

Handwritten, personal notes - every time. I've also asked for 1 extra day/ half day PTO since that's a smaller cost to the company (assuming everyone is salaried).

Big dilemma: I’ve been notified of year end bonus, but it hasn’t been paid yet. Likely will be paid this week. A long term ongoing project is about to be transitioned to me (I was not given the choice whether to take this on or not. We’re short on bodies and I am the most logical choice). I planned on exiting by the end of January. Do I keep my mouth shut and let the client be told I’m the new attorney in charge? Or let my boss know I’m not going to be sticking around? My stomach is in knots!

I recently joined a new company in Feb 2022, with in hand a Salary of INR 35000/month.

My boss thinks I waste my time researching the client's business and ways to grow it all day and I don't do much work. I ran campaigns on Facebook ads manager, Google ads, and keyword research for blogs & e-commerce, Analyze campaigns & optimize them regularly.

Still, my boss is not convinced that I am working worth 35000.
