SPG fish... 166k points at St. Regis for deluxe room vs 75k points at Le Meridien? Going to Rome for a week and those two are my options... is St Regis worth blowing all my SPG points?
Planning to go to Cancun during Labor Day weekend. Which Bonvoy property ? Ritz, Westin Lagunamar, Westin Resort & Spa or JW ?
Checked in at Ritz at 10.45 pm, room had some loud background noise or echo. Called front desk to report and they sent an engineer. Engineer came and said this noise is too loud let me tell (cont)
Westin at Wilmington DE 👀 I see a lot of y’all working but once it hit 5pm. Everyone seemed to vanish.
SPG --> Bonvoy. How long before people don't know what SPG means? Any other now-extinct programs that consulting longtimers miss?

Anyone have tips for the St. Regis NY? I’ve never stayed at a St. Regis, so wondering what to expect. I’ve heard the butler service can be really great, although no idea how to get the most of it. Any recommendations or ideas?
Le Méridien or Sheraton at Saigon/HCM? LM is 10 minutes walk away from everything else. Is Sheraton the better choice then? Traveling with mom and pop for context.
Ritz or St Regis for Bali?
Who's at the Westin in Waltham?
Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.
Walked into a mall in China. It has the same smell as the Sheraton lobby. I could feel tears building around my eyes...
Fucked up and forgot to cancel my Westin hotel booking when I was told to be remote this week. Got charged for one night. Can anything be done?
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
My Marriott in Tampa had a film covering the window and zero natural light. How many points can I get?
I hear transitioning at the M/EM level at MBB & OW is a nightmare. Is it the same for S& and EYP? Curious if it’s just this level where it is hard to switch firms.
Can we talk about the “Rise & Grind” / “Hustle Culture” aspect that seems to be organically baked into our role as Producers. Of course, it is what it is to some degree- but I’ve realized, in order to do my job effectively, my rest & work-life balance is a MUST. How have you handled that? Or do you just power through?
Poll - how many of us are planning on leaving after busy season? Please state yes or no and your current position. I’ll start... Yes, Audit Senior, leaving ASAP after deadlines pass
Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.

What fun things you would do if you are on bench and know that you're starting engagement next week?
I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
I’m looking for some elementary teachers who want to exchange letters written by students. Letters need to be read by the teacher before being sent to make sure they are school appropriate. Letters are mailed to school addresses not to student homes. It would be fun to get a network of participating classrooms from all over the world.
Both my wife and I work for FAANG companies. As the stock has recently gone through the roof I was wondering if we should try to protect the gains (covered call/put options). Understand we will be giving up upside but we might need to liquidate in about a year or so for a down payment. Any one ever done that? How would you think about the strategy here?
Heads of Diversity & Inclusion. Do we never get any Asian persons to qualify for such positions in Corp America??
What do DEI people actually do? Besides give the (mostly false) appearance of diversity within the agency?
