HILTON just sent out an email saying they’d adjust the points required for elite status qualifications once the situation is assessed by the team. And reservations can be changed without any fees CONT
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

TSA pre check at ORD T3 - splitting your line into a large one and a small one to get your ID checked does not speed up the process, and only slows down the process for the large one

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.
If you started working at a company for like a year as a staff level, for example 2019-present, and this is reflected on LinkedIn, do you guys update any promotions to show it as (the date or year of promotion) -present... or just show it as 2019-present? I’ve seen people do the latter more but is that even right?
I’ve got a 3 hour long callback interview via zoom coming up sometime in the next couple of weeks. How do I keep from becoming fidgety and zoning out?! Seriously worried
Upcoming case interviews with Altman Solon and Oliver Wyman. Anyone have any advice for either? Haven't done a case interview since college. OW has mock ones on their website but AS doesn't. Any advice about what to expect very much appreciated. 😊
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)

People in luxury buildings - do you also give a holiday gift to the rest of the staff? I’m mainly talking the people who may come in to fix things or for example the guy who mops the lobby every few days?
Anyone have insight on what the logistics of leaving Deloitte are? Give two weeks, do I need to tell project leadership? Can I sell my PTO or should I use it? Anything else I need to do? Thanks in advance.
Regarding the politicalization of COVID, this opinion was shares somewhere else and felt compelling enough to discuss…..The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of (Cont.)
Pursuing a lateral move to Deloitte Consulting. Experienced Manager potentially 1-2 years away from SM. Expected comp? Tier 2 city.
Have an upcoming interview for a capabilities & insights analyst role at McKinsey - how does this role and track differ from the others at McK? Will I get to do some client interfacing?
Got offered to come on as a full-time employee after working for Guidehouse as a contractor for about 4 months. My position wouldn’t change, but after speaking with the recruiter I have a feeling I’m being low balled. I have over a year and a half of consulting analyst exp prior to contracting, and am currently acting as a team lead on this project. Am I wrong to expect a pay range of 70k-90k? They’re currently offering a little less than 50k
Senior Account Manager (similar level as Senior AE) making $85K. Trying to figure out how much to ask for during this next review time; looking at an Account Director promotion.
Partner community, it’s interesting to see so much opacity and variation around partner comp...for the benefit of the community at large, do you mind sharing;￼ (1) company, (2) Years as Partner / Equivalent, (3) cash comp (base + bonus) and (4) % Commission? Fully understand that “commission” is not the standard by any means but if you could express your comp beyond cash as % of revenue sold, I think we can cut through the noise a bit. TIA!
Anyone have insight into the culture at Adobe? specifically in a professional services standpoint. A good exit opp from a WLB standpoint? Seems like an awesome company.
I have been offered a 25 percent hike at a big 4 but have another offer with 40 percent hike in a Boutiqe firm. I asked the HR of the big 4 if she could adjust since I have a 40 percent hike letter. She said she’ll check. She hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Should I contact her? Currently working at one of the Big 4.
Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
Why are firms so hesitant to fire low performers? It’s horribleeee for the teams that these people are on because everyone else has to pick up the slack
