Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.
What happens to your 401k when you leave without it being fully vested? I left my company without it being fully vested and looks the same to me. I didn't have it transfer over or anything. Just sitting in the original fidelity account. When does it get adjusted? Or did I luck out by keeping it in the original account?

Has anyone ever disclosed a mental health diagnosis to their firm? I have ADHD and have never told my firm because it was never relevant. I’m on medication and I always get my work done on time and I do a good job. However, I’m always behind on entering my billable hours into our time entry system (I keep track on paper) and I wish I could tell them that my ADHD makes small tasks like that harder, but I’m worried about how knowing that about me might change how they perceive me. Any advice?
Looking for some leads on remote L&D roles. I’ve been in the space for several years and I’m looking to work for a strong leader to learn and grow under.
Sometimes travel is not easy like it should be. I had a $1200 credit (b class flight from Paris to NY) from American Airlines that I was told was good for any trip. After 30+ hours between call backs and different desks, they tell me because the trip originated in euros I can only apply it in the US. Fine, but then after another hour on hold, I hear that it can only be redeemed in person at a ticket counter in Paris. I live in NY. Was never told of these stipulations before. Never again AA

ADVICE NEEDED: I’ve started to work closer with a teammate (same title as me). I’ve noticed she is lacking basic social and client industry knowledge. Doesn’t understand content types, can’t analyze campaign performance, etc. It’s difficult to work with her bc there is a gap in level of work output. She can be a bit defensive if I make recommendations or give her tips. How do I help her learn, without coming across as a know it all or patronizing, esp since we have the same title?
