Planning to tip my building doormen, but also love making holiday cookies, do you think spreading a little extra cheer is still acceptable these days, or are people hesitant about homemade foods?

Hesitant about homemade food. Cash!

Would pass on the cookies-only because you don’t know about people’s food allergies. Cash is safer

Yup!

Cookies are a great idea. They will be well received. But you don’t substitute for the cash. But they will endear you to the crowd.

Make the cookies but it’s not a sub for cash. Consider it an extra token of holiday cheer

We’re doing cash and a bottle of champagne, agree that a little extra something is a good gesture

You can always make it and ask. If they want one, give it. But can position it as checking whether they are comfortable and allergies etc. That said, this is still the cherry on top of the cash tip.

Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!

What to do if I suspect I’ve been given a different pto policy from my coworkers? I accrue 10 hours of pto at the end of each month of my employment. This was a very fine detail hidden until the end of my negotiation process. I’m regretting not pushing back on it. Do you know of others at your company that have different policies than you do? I’m a start up full of highly experienced people (I’m the least) so I imagine it’s more likely to happen at a smaller firm?

Maybe it’s burnout from a job where all the cool work benefits you could brag to your friends about are gone bc you wfh now and don’t have access to your cool office and now you work around the clock because there’s no separation between home and work and your agency has done next to nothing to help with that balance and you’ve billed more hours per week than you ever had and now your friends and family are starting to comment on your workload, health, and demeanor. Maybe it’s Maybelline ✨

I’m also curious to understand what salary trajectories are over time especially for people who have started in consulting and have basically never left this career path for 10-20 years.
