How does Guidehouse Commercial Travel? (Types of Hotels? First class >3h? Per diem/actual?) Also are there any other perks? (Phone? Profit sharing? 401k match?)
Spinning off an earlier post, is it better to quit or get laid off? I would think quitting and using the time to "re-center" (i.e. Travel for a few months) then job hunt would look better than lay off
I'm racking up a backlog of points that I'm not spending, SPG, Marriott, Amex, Chase(SR), AA and Dellta. What's the best way to keep track of them all and manage for best redemption?
When a hotel issues you points as a courtesy, do they pay for it out of their income statement? How does that work?
With Hilton now. Should I switch to SPG or Marriot? Do it before or after the official merger?
General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?
Qn about SPG platinum breakfast amenity - is it valid only once during the stay or for each day? I'm told I can use it only once during the stay 🤷🏻♂️
Frm BOS, regular 8 AM flight w/first class upgrade gets cancelled. On 9 AM flight w/10 people on the upgrade list. Check in & rqst for an upgrade. Bump every1 else down and get upgraded to 1 open seat
People have been poo pooing going to Hawaii due to lack of reservations for activities and poor service due to understaffing. I have a Maui trip planned in Sept and I'm thinking about putting it off. Is it that bad? I'm staying at the Ritz.
"Some experts are referring to the Corona virus as "the new terrorism", triggering the biggest crisis the airline industry has ever seen" Article goes on to talk about forced vaccinations to travel...
Where tf is the Titanium Elite support phone number on the Bonvoy app? Been looking for 20 mins and feel like I’m going insane
So I realized I love every apspect of consulting but the travel ( assuming pre- Covid ) what forms should I look into?
Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Also my credit card bill will likely be a mix of shared and personal expenses, so how do couples go about this? Open to any advice. Thanks!
Changin Delta flight to tonight. No point in even going to the airport if you have not left home yet!
Best Mexico spg properties, with suite upgrade?
What's a good way to tell a potential case (that's expected to be crazy in hours and has brutal travel) that you're working on MBA apps and need a little time on weekday evenings and weekends?
Best way to blow Bonvoy points on a 1 night stay in Honolulu? Considering Ritz, Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider. Any good experiences?
Do you expense in flight wifi?
Nobody really has a fear of flying, it’s the fear of suddenly not flying! ATL flights are always turbulent.
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
Where could I find a source for trusted salary and total compensation information? I need to find salary/total comp for a help desk person in Monterrey, Mexico and Hyperbad, India.
How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
How long can u stay in the country after resigning while on h1b? Hoping a trip round the country after being done with the job
Survey time! Let’s say you put on weight during Covid - enough that clothes don’t fit but not so much that your BMI is too high or you’re very unhealthy. Would you buy a new wardrobe? Or would you try to lose the weight ASAP assuming everyone has to be back in office / client sites in July??
Layoffs at CDM ... again
Anyone interviewed with S&O at DoorDash? Got an interview for a senior associate role. They asked me to do a take home exercise which takes 4-5 hrs to complete. Worth the time? What’s the pay range look like? 5 YOE in ops consulting.
I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?
Does the workload lesson over time, or do you just get used to the longer hours? Hmmmm...
Thanks for doing this! Last year it was announced we would see a market correction in salary vs. the other big 4. What we got was underwhelming to say the least. What was the rationale behind this?
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
What are your thoughts on southwest assurance (Texas) raises this year? Same as last year? Better? Worse?
What are the ladies wearing to promotion day tomorrow? Want to be casually dressed for a celebration but still work appropriate
$75k + $10k bonus for senior financial analyst role in NYC - should I take it? It seems a hell of a lot better than my $60k role in audit. Currently an A2.

I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.
