The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie). Last year there was a lack of available turkeys in the quantity we needed, so we switched it up and did a bottle of sparkling cider with a $25 gift card. This year the owners want to do something different but they are not sure what. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have about 300 employees in one location. Thanks!!

I just got an offer for a lateral position and have until Feb 12 to accept (I’m going to). They’re eager for me to start. Once I accept, it won’t take long to clear conflicts so I could theoretically be giving my firm my 2 weeks as early as next week. I have had a vacation planned for a while the last week of Feb (2 biz days in a remote cabin) — is it bad if I take it during my 2 weeks notice? Or should I postpone my start date?

HELP!
I verbally accepted a job offer at a company yesterday and hours later I got a call from a job I was more interested in with better pay, vacation time, and 401k match. I’m talking double vacation and 401k match. They know I already accepted something else and were motivated to move quickly. Assuming all goes well with this other company and the interview, is it terrible to go back on my current job offer? I haven’t signed anything yet and I wouldn’t start until next month.
