Anniversary coming up, 1 year. Going to gift a spa day to my partner. Should I also book a hotel room with the spa? It would be in Chicago so we wouldn't need to stay at the hotel as we live in the city. So I'm wondering if it's worth the $ when I can just get a spa day for us and we can go home. Thoughts?

Hotels can be a nice getaway - which Spa are you booking ?

I haven't on a Spa yet bc if we do end up staying at a hotel that may influence the Spa decision as well. Any ideas?

Any of the nice hotels - Sofitel, Langham, Park Hyatt, Peninsula all have great spas.

I would totally do a room. Hang out at the spa, then go up and order room service and sleep in. I would recommend the Ritz or Peninsula - both have great rooms and great spas and bars. I loved both. Although you may want to check their current protocols and if anything beyond treatments is available, ie saunas, etc. the latter may be another reason to get a room - if they’re only doing treatments it won’t be as special without all the other amentitiez. I didn’t like the Langham spa.

Do the Peninsula. Hands down. Give him/her a half day and he/she can get lunch in the spa and all that. Good gift.

I think i have fucked up my 5 year old relationship. Recently I met a female friend of mine who was supposed to meet her current boyfriend at a fancy ass hotel coz they were meeting after long. But he couldn't make it coz he got sick last moment. So she called me 12 in the night that she wanted company and I foolishly went ahead to give her some "company". A few hours into the night we both couldn't control our mind and while sleeping we started cuddling. *More below*

Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.

Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.

What was your "I know I'm done moment" that made you decide you were ready to leave consulting? I am at my second firm with a much better WLB but starting to question whether I need to just exit altogether. I also hear about many ex-consultants being "bored" in industry jobs so want to make sure I am really thoughtful about what it is I am looking for outside of a consulting role. I am over the hierarchy and politics in consulting but not sure it that much better in industry.
