Do most firms allow alternate weekend travel (eg. If it's cheaper to fly somewhere else than home for the weekend, then you can expense the entire flight cost)?
Took a later flight and got some delta credit. What should I redeem? 1) delta credit 2) amazon gift card 3) visa gift card 4) other
Who brings a crying baby on a 6am flight? 🙄
How do I get Hilton to match my Marriott platinum elite status? I was just bounced around to like 4 different contacts and got nowhere
Leaving my firm and need to transfer 69K Amex points. What’s the best transfer partner to consider if I already have solid balances with Delta and Marriott/SOG?
Woke up to 30 fishbowl and cnn alerts about Delta's shitshow. Got worried and then realized I'm federal and not leaving DC. And then went back to sleep.

H1B stanping question - I just got my h1b renewed, but i need to travel in december to Asia and likely the place im travelling to will not return my passport before i have to return to the US due to christmas and new years holidays. If i go to Toronto, Canada before this and try to get the stamp before asia trip can i work while im getting the stamping done? Or is that illegal? Im afraid of taking too much vacation time across both trips.
applied for passport renewal at SFO consulate. VFS guys said you filled in wrong and we are sending the application back, and to refile again correctly. Got email saying it has been dispatched. However, I haven’t received the passport back till now. It’s been 10 days. I have tried following up through multiple channels. No response till now. I need to travel to india next week. any suggestions on how I can get it resolved? Their customer care phone line is charging 2.5$/min and are of no help!
ORD - first the flight is delayed, then they can't find a gate, and to top it off, once they get to the gate, they can't find any ground crew to deplane the flight - thanks United!
Sorry 🐠know it has been asked but don’t find it. How to decide whether to redeem bonvoy/Marriott points or pay the night (personal travel)? What is the value you should seek to in Cents per point? Tia
CLEAR at IAD and DCA. Is it worth signing up? Lots of international and domestic travel coming up. Thoughts fish? Thanks!!
Long time United flyer. Moving down to Raleigh. American or Delta? I like to use my miles for international trips. Also any challengers I can do, or thoughts on getting status fast?
Delta should update their flight statuses from "on time" so we don't show up at the airport to find out were delayed hours. Consultants need sleep, we're people too
Are we able to mirror our motions/voices/moves to a different location? Who wants to work on this initiative? Would be a perfect tool for WFH situation.
Any suggestions for self help books on anxiety? Been dealing with anxiety for quite some time now and have been seeing a therapist but also just want to see what other resources are out there.
Do people still frame diplomas? I have a top-5 mba diploma gathering dust in my closet the last 6 years, is framing diplomas still a thing? Seems expensive, and I can’t think of a non-tacky place to hang it.
Any LGBT consultants care to share about their work experience? Being LGBT is awkward to me as I feel the lack of diversity but it's also not common to talk about.
Is the interview process to get into IBD harder or easier than top consulting firms like BCG/McKinsey/Bain? Where do the truly smart people work nowadays?
I assume everyone is back to office 5 days a week or more,m. How is everyone taking their interviews? (Sick day, doctors appointment?)
Need to give notice to my firm tomorrow. Feeling overcome with emotion (guilt, nostalgia, excitement and trepidation). I don't think it will go well because it's a small firm, and I am very close to the partners, but need to move on to achieve career goals (and maintain sanity--I have a great relationship with my colleagues but there is a toxic culture). Truly think that my mentor will see this as a personal betrayal and blow up at me, and I'm sad to burn the bridge. Any words of encouragement?
Let's not forget an unsung hero https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/3115445/remembering-li-wenliang-wuhan-doctor-who-warned-world-about-coronavirus
So how many points did they give you?
Level unlocked - A big4 partner who interviewed and grilled me for 45 mins said 'It doesn't feel like an interview cos I wasn't able to make you feel uncomfortable' Why am I posting this here - Motivation, fwiw. 4/5 months ago I was probably the most awkward, anxious non native interviewer. Got a McK interview, practiced like never before, failed the final round due to anxity/casing eff ups. Although I failed, gained lot of confidence and have been flying thru tier 2/b4 interviews since.
How hard would it be to make the jump from designer to art director? For context, when applying for this job I thought I would be a designer with some ideation opportunities (there are no Junior Art Directors in our creative hierarchy). Craving for more ideation/big-thinking art direction in my next gig.

Best self-help books? Can be career, love, motivation...anything that you found really helpful!
Looking for Seattle opportunities.. Have almost 3 years of Oracle functional experience.. trying to do something with cloud.. Taking AWS SAA in 2 weeks. Any recommended openings or referrals?
Felling a little conflicted: I have an interview to exit consulting into industry. They are offering a 50% increase in salary, no travel. On the other hand, I love my current team and client but...
