I started a new role at a new company a month ago. As it’s a newly created role, everyone is still trying to find work for me. Other members on my team are busy and haven’t had time to help onboard me or give me work. My manager announced last week that he’s leaving the company as well.

I’m considering leaving. Another company has caught my attention, and I’m very interested in their products and culture. How bad would it look to leave a new job after 1-2 months though?

Is it common to not get a response on an offer other than they received it? We just put in an offer 110k over ask with 30% down covering any appraisal issues above asking, waived inspection after paying someone to walk through with us, and didn’t even get a no thank you. Is this how it goes now, or is this out of the ordinary?

My 9-week old puppy starts barking/whining when she wakes up in her crate. Sometimes it’s her letting us know that she needs to go potty. Other times it’s just her wanting to go out. We tried to ignore the behavior but would end up going to her anyways. We live in an apartment so we feel bad for the neighbors when she doesn’t stop. Any advice?
