Marriott platinum members, what kind of benefits or upgrade do you get when you arrive at a hotel?
Just logged into my Marriott account and my platinum elite downgraded to gold elite. That does not sound correct, right? I had to get 40 nights to retain titanium so it seems weird to skip two levels

Hello -travelling to client site for the first time, few questions as a manager: 1. What’s my max per diem for meals? 2. I am travelling on Sunday - hoping I can charge meals on Sunday as well? 3. I decided to stay the weekend as I had to travel back again on Monday - can I charge the hotel during weekend? Since I will be avoiding the full flight cost which is huge?

Hi Fishes 🐠,
Hope you are doing great!
I wanted to reach out because I’m currently exploring new opportunities. I have 4 years of experience in project management and business operations. Please help sharing/referring if there is any PMO/Project Management you have.
Just to add, I am currently serving my notice period and will be available to join after 20th Jan'22.
So, this is a very personal kind of question, but I hope people relate and can provide an answer. I am CLOSE friends with a peer on my team and they an awful engineer and I'm always showing them up, simply by doing the right work. It's getting to a point where I'm getting bogged down by them, and I don't know if our manager will notice or if I need to do something to bring it up. What's the ideal solution for this? Maybe a stealth approach I haven't thought of? I don't want them to be fired...

I feel so lucky after divorcing 3 years ago. My ex was a spender and didn’t believe he ever needed to save for retirement. At 34 he had saved $0. I had to fight to convince him that I would add money into my 401k. We divorced and I had 90k in my retirement accounts while in my early 30s. 3 years later it’s now at 202k. I finally feel like I’m on track and it wouldn’t have happened without leaving a relationship where our values were so different.
