I do, the flexibility to re-book flights for indecisive clients helps a lot. The points help me get Companion Pass, which just got much more valuable with the addition of Hawaii routes starting next year. The down side is they aren’t in all the cities I need so I use American in those cases.

Flexibility is amazing and the points that come with flights are great. Points can be used for any flight you want, no blackout dates. Companion pass is also a top incentive in the game!

SWA points are very usable, I maintain at least A-list for that purpose. If points are your goal you have to know what you plan to do with them to optimize. If you are trying to do a European vacation, SWA won’t help.

I was on a business trip with my boss who is a black male. We were eating breakfast (in a hotel catering to business travel, wearing business attire) and another black male (in business attire) came up to him, struck up a conversation said "its good to see another successful black guy" and they exchanged cards. I had never seen it before. When the guy went away I asked my boss about it and he said he will occasionally do that when he sees another black guy in a business setting. CTD.

And she went ahead and presented to our VP, after telling me that she's gonna do that.

I am SO FRUSTRATED! If you're here and reading this, may you get a crying baby next to you on every flight for the next year!

Hey everyone,

Need some thoughts. (Shows analyst on FB, but I've since been promoted). Basically I have had all amazing reviews since at my firm. Currently on a project where I am feeling super burnt out and as a result im not taking initiative and therefore performing poorly. I believe my next review will be quite poor. Does anyone have any advice on managing this / perspectives I should have? I am pretty worried that I will get fired and if that happens idek what I would do.

Thanks
