So I started a new just this past Monday (ya!) and I really like it. There are about 55 employees at the office and the HR person introduced me to everyone but 55 people is alot and I barely remember everyone!
I love to bake and wanted to make some cupcakes or something and leave them in the breakroom and send an email around (this is the norm, people bring in treats just cause and for birthdays), but I have only been there a few days and don’t want to seem like a brown-noser.
What do you think?

@missjewels: perhaps not to seem too brown nosey, I would wait 2 weeks. Bringing something in too soon may come off as brown nosey.
I would obsearve the “food culture” of the office. Try to notice where/what people bring in in the morning and eat for lunch. Maybe muffins would be the best non-brown nosey thing. Baked goods from home say I am trying hard…. muffins are not as showy as cupcakes. (silly but true).

I kind of agree that it would help to wait a couple weeks, but they’re going to love you when you start bringing in treats! 🙂
