Has anyone ever tipped a flight attendant? In general I think the practice is bizarre, but I see so many posts online about ppl tipping or giving gifts/gift cards to flight attendants. These aren’t underpaid service workers, these are salaried employees with benefits, why would I give them a gift card for showing up to work and doing their job?
Note - in general I absolutely do believe in tipping, I’m a standard 20%+ tipper in restaurants, etc., but not for full time professionals

Just got a BCG associate offer. Will be going to the office for a “Welcome Weekend” next week. Any advice? I want to accept the offer before I go because then I can be purposeful with my conversations. Thoughts? I’d love to network with project leaders so they’re aware of me in a year (after grad) and I can pop back up and reconnect and maybe get some influence on the first project I’m placed on. Any general advice is also welcome for the next year (credit cards, skills, etc..) to get ready.
