Flying EWR-PDX via United on a Weds and PDX-JFK via Delta on a Sun - upgrades are $300 for each. Worth it? Or should I just wait for the possibility of a free upgrade?

Anyone with United 1k in jeopardy of not meeting the lowered “move the goalpost” PQP targets? Is there a December promotion or do you think United will pivot to extend status to 2023 in the final hour? Ugh, I don’t want lose 1k but can’t justify ~$5,000 in out of pocket expenses / mileage run. Anyone in the same boat?
Looking for a relaxing SPG hotel for a 3-4 night trip sans kids. Needs to be accessible enough that we don’t spend all our time time traveling. Leaning towards Mediterranean. Thanks!
Traveling abroad (15 hour flight) with my nine month old lo to see my family. Any recommendations for strollers / car seat? Also appreciate any other trips! I am super anxious about this trip - baby hates changing tables and gets scared even with sound of vacuum cleaners :/
Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course). I’ve created a market research survey for the concept and this group is the perfect target market to provide thoughtful responses. I would greatly appreciate any and all participation and welcome feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3272GH2
$518 short of 1K via the Fly to the Finish program for United. But not flying anywhere between now and Nov 30 so… oof. I guess I’m just Gold for next year now…
Has anyone gotten a travel exemption due to clinically diagnosed anxiety? Curious how I should go about this because traveling post covid is negatively impacting my well being. I’ve been remote for the past almost two years now, so clearly I can get the job done without being on site. Any help is appreciated.

I had a Sheraton I’m staying in this weekend and reach out to me to say “Please note, that corporate rates are for business travel only and require proof of eligibility.” While I have no issues showing proof of eligibility, I’m on traveling for vacation. I thought we could use our rate codes for leisure travel too. Regardless I’m going to tell them I’m going for work but just curious if they spread fake news. Accenture
Project just wrapped (early) and now I’m on the bench between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just exactly how screwed am I trying to find a new gig before Xmas? Same approach as normal? Any tips?
My client stakeholders keep requesting for meetings left, right, and centre, leaving me only time after 5 pm to work. What is a polite way to decline these requests. I don’t want to come across as not wanting to meet.
Part of me hopes that we have another lockdown as a result of the Omicron variant. So many lives have been lost, the virus has undoubtedly caused mental duress across the globe, and I’m fortunate to be in a position where a lockdown wouldn’t impact me as much as it would others (which I obviously acknowledge), but life truly slowed down and subconsciously there was a sense of comfort knowing I could take the time to work on myself without missing out on anything happening on the outside.
I have recently started feeling completely apathetic about this job. I have 0 stress cause I don't care. The 0 stress has led to good project experiences, but I have no will to work. Contd..
Are any companies honest and just say that “We’re here for the money and so are you. If we want to keep you, we’ll pay you just enough to keep you from leaving if that makes sense for us. Otherwise we’ll fire you or not give you raises/bonuses” Curious because I would rather be at a company that says that than one that lies through their teeth about being a “supportive culture”
How do you “exit to client”? Is it the actual client team you are working for..? Does the client stakeholder give you a recommendation to a hiring manager in the company? I just don’t see how people do it Sounds illegal

USCIS Site visit experience: I’m on bench and working from home on an internal project for one month. USCIS site visit official called me and asked if I’m working from my office location? Cntd....
It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.
Cheers to reporting red on our project today!

Feeling a little bit low-balled by a Bay Area public company offering me a role at 145K w/ 9years of experience. Will it sound ridiculous if I counter with $175K? It will still be a COL adjustment down, but more acceptable, especially with my partner relocating with me and him working remotely.
