Default Bullet spacing in tables

Hi Everyone!

I'm working on a table for work and the bullet spacing is driving me insane. Note - The document is for my boss who refuses to use 'Styles'

Essentially, the table has two columns and there are bullet points in each cell (aside from the heading). The formatting is exactly the same in each column, I've checked the formatting code. It's identical. Yet the bullet points in the left column appear to have a space above the bullet and words and the bullet points in the right column do not have a space. So essentially, the lines are uneven.

This is baffling me. Any ideas?

I imagine you have "don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" selected.

I am having the exact same issue and occurred to me this morning that's what it could be: turned off that setting and it worked. It appears that Word treats adjacent cells as part of the same paragraph?

I actually come onto this forum in order to see if there's something I can do about this, as my style contains that setting. I want it in general, but I don't think this would be desired behaviour for anyone.
