When it comes to airlines I go where I'm appreciated thus far JetBlue, Southwest, and Virgin America (now Alaska Air) have been my go to airlines. You couldn't pay me to get on United, Delta or US.
I think I'm at age where I'm tired of flings. Need to settle down. But it's hard to find a main when you travel so much and have sides in different cities. Consulting is a crazy lifestyle. Anyone else feel the same way?
How do you travel with your face serums & oils?
Taking family to Madrid. 10 days. Using Bonvoy points for hotel. Any recommendations for hotel or city/neighborhood location?
Flight with Delta delayed several times (in total 12 hours) before being cancelled, better to call in and complain or email, last time I emailed, it took a month to get back to me with only 7.5k miles
What are your predictions for travel in the “new normal”? Can’t see myself wanting to stay much longer if it’s more than a week a month.
Going to Cabo in April with my husband! Looking to do more adventure travel, but also take advantage of all these Bonvoy points I have. Anyone have any recs for great properties there?
I swear to god the maids at the Westin intentionally point that little handheld shower apparatus straight at you so when you turn on the shower...
Aloft or Element in Detroit? Personal trip and the Westin is 50% greater. Both look great but thought I would check here. Leaning towards the Element.
HELP. Need to get rid of 60K AMEX points. Any suggestions? No more travel for me and want to close my account before I’m charged the annual fee again
There is only one happy day of the week - Saturday!! No packing. No checking in to a flight. You can actually detach fully without thinking at all about work. 💛
Has anyone been sent a package from Hilton for hitting 100 nights? I received an email from FedEx that a Hilton address was sending a package, within a week of hitting 100 nights on the year.
Real talk. Why doesn't Uber have a loyalty/points program? (Besides VIP, which is a joke.) I created a new budget category just to delineate Uber from other travel. Obscene how much I spend.
How many years should you stay at a consulting company before jumping ship so it doesn’t look like your a hopper or flight risk or have negative perception?

Accenture Managers & up: does Accenture pay a new phone + plan? Or do they just reimburse the cost of your personal plan. Turning in my one and only phone to D and trying to decide if I need to buy a new one now or figure out a temporary solution until Accenture sends one in about a month when I start.
Any travel recs for Budapest in December?
I’m starting at M in August as a first year BA and was recruited through campus recruiting (specialized masters). I have 1 YOE at EY-P but went back to school due to immigration issues. Should I have done lateral recruiting instead of campus recruiting? Are experienced hires getting paid higher? If so, is there a way that I can communicate this to HR so I could come in as experienced hire instead? Thank you in advance for the help. McKinsey & Company

Is IUI covered by Deloitte insurance ?
What other ECs are good besides volunteering/nonprofits? My resume doesn’t have a strong track record of community service so I’m worried that any volunteering that I do now will be seen as fake/done purely for MBA apps. Are there any other impactful activities that can fit into resumes like mine?
Is it a common feeling or that diversity hires at big 4 are less qualified than individuals hired through general channels? Can anyone in HR support or refute?

If I move into a financial analyst position after two years of audit experience (and 1 promotion) will i likely start at the bottom of the totem pole? Trying to get an idea of what my salary would be. I feel this role is kinda critical for my 20 -30 year plan so I’m willing to start at an A1 position again. any insight here would be great. Thanks
Hi 🐠 Fam, anyone know what status you need to get an upgrade to business on a United Polaris flight ( BOS/SF route)? I’m gold status but apparently that’s not enough to qualify on the Polaris routes.
Would appreciate it if someone can give me information on Strategy&’s FI practice. Currently a PL at BCG. I was just offered a Director position at Strategy& with more than double my current salary. Wondering whether if it makes sense to make the jump.
Me as a new hire : *panicked I was going to be fired at any moment.* Me 4 years into this : Maybe if they fired me, it wouldn’t be that bad of a thing for my life 🤣😂.
