Moved into a new building a couple months ago. There’s a doorman who will see me struggling with packages or bags and never offers to help (automatic door so he’s not even actually opening the door). Am I really expected to give him a holiday bonus at the end of the year??

My doormen never actually open the doors in the traditional sense, they are at the desk and receive packages, call up for guests, handle maintenance routing, receive food deliveries, and more. Importantly, they know who lives there and doesn’t and are a safety check. They do a lot that you don’t see, and yes I think annual tip/bonus is part of it.

In my building it pretty much depends on the doorman. Some would open the door if I carry a lot and put it on the cart for me. Others don’t care as you said. I usually give more tip for those that go the extra mile.

My guess is that he could have a medical condition that makes it unsafe or difficult for him to carry heavy stuff

funny

Nah he probably has back problems/foot problems/hernia etc

Someone I know literally has the same problem. I wonder if you are in the same building!

That’s a normal doorman thing you’re asking for. My doormen help with heavy packages if we’re carrying something big from a car etc. Sorry you’re dealing with that.

Hi fellow fishes, I've been offered a Tech strategy role at PWC SDC, Bangalore. My total experience is of 6 years (2.5 pre-MBA and 3.5 post-MBA). The offered role is of the same domain in which I've been working for the last 3.5 years @ACN. PWC are offering me a Senior Associate position. My question is - should I or can I negotiate with the HR to give me a better position (e.g. Manager) than the Senior Associate? Thanks in advance!

It’s not that I am not capable (lots of great feedback from him and Partner/SM) -
