It's 8 am EDT and I am already bored of the number of posts below talking about Marriott and SPG merger. HAPPY FRIDAY!
GC holders are not held to the US travel ban. Does that count only when your GC is in hand or i140 approval and AP would work too? Thanks in advance
Spotted on morning flight to LAX: multiple people wearing “KPMG future diversity leader” purple T-shirts. What’s this about?
Hey guys, do you know what’s the use case for the phone in the bathroom? I’m comfortably seated in my newly refurbished SPG preferred room and I wonder why they kept the phone in here 🚽🤔
Going to Honolulu the week before July 4th. Looking at rental cars and every single company I've looked at (Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National) shows no availability?? Will things open up as time gets closer or am out of luck
Are there any Houston strategy firms that have a local business model I.e. no travel? Want to make a switch but avoid 10% traveling
I don’t have much experience traveling in (international) business class. I recently upgraded a flight for 3 people but I am hesitant to pay again to reserve the seats. As far as I know they’ll let me choose the seats day before departure. Question — am I taking any risk by not assigning seats? I’m guessing since I already paid, they’ll hold the seats for us. Granted we may or may not be able to sit together, I just want to make sure they’ll hold 3 seats.

Can you actually pay your taxes with credit cards to get bonuses? I am assuming for the sign up bonuses. I owe a pretty large tax bill every year and would like to pay with credit card then pay that off at the end of the month.
Bed bugs at the Irvine CA Marriott. Another brand new Marriott called Marriott Spectrum 10 minutes away was much nicer.
What is the SPG Global Promo? I got 3 of them for Q1 and don't recall getting these before. The SPG website doesn't have much info.

Interviewing with EY next week. What is a good salary range for 3 YOE in PMO capacity - no MBA?
Do SPG suite nights expire? I chose the 10 suite nights as my reward for 50 stays last year, and am wondering if I should be in a bit more of a rush to use them

Moving to San Francisco in few weeks and just watched a trailer of ‘You’. Can’t be more excited!! 🙈
Hey! I've always wanted to get into IB (prestige, money, you name it), however now that I'm in a more laid back environment (better WLB, "easier work") it doesn't seem as attractive as before and the pay is quite good for an analyst level (I think the pay is competitive even comparing with IB's pay in my country) . I wanted to know if anyone had the same experience and what were your thoughts (pursue an MBA and leave your comfort zone and "good pay" or just stick with it). TIA!
Anyone from MBB cyber focused with openings? M3 EY with a focus in large scale cyber transformation

Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!

What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?
Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
