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?
SO and I are asking a weekend trip to San Diego from Chicago in early feb. Best SPG property? Don’t really care about luxury, more convenience and location. Also do we need a car? Thanks!
Flying for vacation this weekend. Get to EWR extra early expecting a zoo and...it's emptier than I've seen it in a long time. Guess I timed it right.
If you have Priority Pass (lounge access card), can you enter the Virgin lounge at EWR if you’re flying United?
Hi everyone! I’m switching internally to my company’s LA office (from Boston). I only need to be in the office 1 or 2x per week and am toying around with the idea of living in San Diego and commuting up that one day. It’s likely be a 2.5hr drive or so each way, which seems like a lot. Can anyone speak to whether or not I’d go insane with that setup or if there are ways to make it more tolerable? I just have more family / friends in SD and would prefer to live there if possible :) thank you!!
Is it possible for me to be based of the San Jose office and not live there especially since it's been a year and I haven't had any local projects?The rents are a killer and paying so much feels waste
Does anyone have any recruiter recommendations for Seattle? Looking to lateral from out of state. San Francisco, LA, Phoenix, or Denver would also be helpful. Thanks!

Moving to San Diego in the spring from the central coast. Any recs on places to live (late 30’s with a kid)? Want to be close to restaurants and things to do, but a little too old and tired for gas lamp!
Has anyone moved to Britain from the US? I’m trying to move but unsure about the process. Are visa regulations more lax or am I going to be in a limbo like the US?
Watched the movie Abominable with my kids (cute movie overall) and I noticed that one scene had the map of China showing them owning the South China Sea. ....
I run Butchershop® Global from San Francisco, Guadalajara, LA, NY, and Vienna. Over the last 13 years, we've created a pretty incredible culture and had our best years of growth during the pandemic. I'm here to help answer any questions about running an agency business or swap career advice.

I received an offer from BCG today would like to switch. Thoughts with premium being suspended? I don’t mind taking the risk though. Also, I need to travel to India in December for 2 (contd)
Anyone had a firm do a background check done using RAI? It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard anything. I’m surprised it’s taking this long because there’s nothing in my background that would raise any issues.
Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!
How worth it is Delta Platinum? Assuming a newly minted platinum is flying ORD -> LGA can one reasonably expect first class or comfort plus upgrades on a regular basis?
Just moved to a new city where I know no one. Tips for meeting people when I travel M-F? (Not huge on the club scene.)
For every one concerned that the Covid vaccine manufacturers are protected to some point against lawsuits until 2024, that is true. It is due to the PREP Act. However Covid is not the first time it was activated. There have been quite a few since 2005 when it was enacted. There are some still in effect for smallpox, zika and anthrax for example. https://www.phe.gov/Preparedness/legal/prepact/Pages/default.aspx

Can someone tell me why they prefer SPG hotels? No in room mini fridge, no microwave, no free breakfast without status.. Having a hard time seeing any perks here. TIA
Currently considering offers from 2 big 4 firms for entry level audit opportunities. I’m a bit concerned about the burn out that everybody’s talking about in PA￼. Any advice on how to avoid it or at least minimize the effects?
I think the problem with consultants is you are overpaid from the very start because you generate revenue, even with zero skills and are willing to travel. Over time that evolves to arrogance because you think you know more than your clients when the reality is your sample set is quite small. I have spent equal time on both sides and would counsel you to be careful in a remote post COVID world because we are all realizing we have more employee capacity than we thought.
Apple Watch owners: why do you have an Apple Watch? What are the benefits/downsides and is it worth it? From what I read, it seems mostly beneficial to track health like a Fitbit?
I never realized how spoiled I was having status with Delta until I had to fly frontier once

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?
Do any other managers get annoyed when a resource works from home and is unavailable via Lync or Skype through significant periods of the day? How do you handle?
