How much devastation is about to hit the consulting industry? It is one of the most travel focused industries to exist.
Planning to spend 5 nights at Bali. Is St Regis or W or Ritz better? Please share your experience and which hotel would have a better experience and more activities to do. Thanks!
Can you cash in on the lodging per diem and use air bnb instead of booking the preferred rate hotels for client travel? I think I'd rather have the cash than the hotel points.
Deloitte peeps: for rental cars, can we rent through Hertz or Enterprize?Avis is shit and far from my place.
People have short memories. Here is a picture of the havoc Delta variant wreaked in India a few months ago. We are not far from this in the US if the vaccination rates don't increase. People here defending not taking vaccines and not wearing masks just amazes me. Folks here are devoid of basic thinking let alone critical thinking.
Worth it to pay the 550/year for the Amex corporate platinum once travel resumes? Looks like all the point multipliers are stripped compared to the normal platinum so my initial thought is it’s not worth it
Delta has a 75,000 miles per ticket cap when receiving award miles!! That just made me so mad 😡

Business traveler here. I stay at Marriott/SPG hotels. I can’t bill flights so I charge hotels, taxis and food each week. Which is better Amex SPG or Chase Sapphire Preferred for building points?
How does one ask for points when things go wrong at the hotel? Today I had to swap rooms because my original room smelled awful after housekeeping cleaned it this morning. Contd..
Just paid off my credit card debt that totaled a whopping 5-digits worth! ($XX,XXX) Took 7 months of sacrifice and making better life choices. I never wanna be in debt ever again!
Do companies really check reciepts/ credit card statements submitted? How are they verified?
DELTA PLUS, are you KIDDING ME i am so tired DAMNNIT
When I used to travel for business, my local cab driver would pick me up for airport trips. One of the drivers was from Lebanon. He would ask me jokingly how he could contact Modi to find out why India doesn't compete in world cup soccer or win golds in Olympics. I would answer him all of my cousins are either doctors or engineers. This NYT article reminded me of the good old days www.nytimes.com/2021/08/04/world/asia/olympics-india.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage
How does everyone bill for travel? Example - flying out Monday for a depo on Tues Wed, flying back Thursday. My gut has always been to bill for working hours time on the flying days and hearing days, but is that what everyone does? Can I bill 8 hours (or more) for a full travel day even if I’m not working every minute (but I’m also not not-working)? Nobody at my firm talks about this and at this point I’m too embarrassed to ask.
Does delta bump your status down one level even if you don't re-qualify? I just got gold status (made platinum last year) but haven't met the requirements yet
Barcelona > Valencia > Madrid > Seville > Lagos > Lisbon > Porto in 15 days/14 nights is this doable or too much? We’ll be throwing in a couple of day trips as well. Please share restaurant/things to do/nightlife/hotel recs. Thank you!

W Hi Fishes, wanted to know what is the market standard salary for a Consultant Process Transformation role with experience in Intelligent Automation
If you were laid off or fired would you apply for your current job? I was laid off from Big 4 audit in 2016 after working there for 2 years and it was one of the best things to happen to me. 1. It allowed me to reflect and decide what was important in my next career. 2. Losing a job isn’t as frightening as it seems. 3. Accountants have major job security as I got a job offer within 2 weeks. When you’re miserable at work ask yourself would you apply for your current job?

What are the benefits of working at a small law firm (about 10 attorneys) as opposed to a midsize firm. What is the difference in the amount of work/ billable hours, benefits (health insurance and PTO), opening doors for future career opportunities, etc. I have an interview at a small law firm, which is not what I ideally wanted, but I am considering it because of the COVID uncertainties. I appreciate any kind of guidance.
