What’s an appropriate non alcoholic gift for PMDs who supported my milestone for SC?

Somewhat old school but whatever you do, I’d recommend a handwritten note as well. Gift giving in general is more about personalization and appreciation vs trying to buy the right thing.

As others have stated, a gift isn’t necessary BUT, if there is someone that really supported you and you feel inclined, a good non-alcoholic beverage would be a nice cider from a local vineyard. Strawberry or peach or something nice for the summer would be nice.

So at this point, OP. I hope you listen to us and scrap the gift idea

We all have those. The advice still applies. It’s not appropriate to gift up, typically. And they could afford anything anyway. The best thing you can do is give them something heartfelt. Phone call, written thank you, etc.

Their paycheck.

How on earth do you even approach talking about sign on bonuses? I started w Citi over 5 years ago. When I asked about this the recruiter was so offended. “I’ve never heard of someone getting a signing bonus,” which I call BS on. She was probably w Citi for over 25+ years. I’m leaving for JP Morgan for more money. Go into negotiations tomorrow. Role is VP Project Management in Tampa. Just want to be prepared as possible.
