if you’re covering the person while on leave, $100 contribution from them makes sense.

Associate - $20
senior - $25+
Manager - $30+
Director and above - $50+

^ yes, more giving if it’s a close manager. If the manager left me a bunch of comments then I sent a note back to them via a card

I received like 850 for mine and my group has 23 people in it. When I was a senior I gave 50 for a baby shower.

If I like the person, but don't frequently interact - $25
If I don't like the person, I delete the email chain.
If I am friends with the person and have spent time outside of work with them willingly - $50+

smart

That's very nice. I'm on a large team and we usually do $10.

Send a RAC award instead lol

When I spoke to the client she had no idea why the recruiter added angular react as it was just a Java developer position, Completely wasted so much time

My questions is, if the comp got negotiated the same. Doesn’t PCS actually opens more opportunities than global mobility tax in the future? I know I don’t want to be in mobility tax for ever.
