Getting together for a weekend with 7 other high school friends in Denver in early November. Looking at Westin downtown, Renaissance and Hyatt. Any recommendations for night life and hotel in Denver?
60k Bonvoy points for 30k AA miles - yay or nay? Have 500k bonvoy points, and 140k AA miles. Plan to redeem AA miles for round trip to HKG.
Anyone know if Sheraton Seattle has a lounge? Usually stay at one of the Marriotts there but switching it up this week.
Best way to blow Bonvoy points on a 1 night stay in Honolulu? Considering Ritz, Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider. Any good experiences?
Looking for suggestions on weekend trips with a small dog. Bonus if I can use bonvoy points for hotels 🙂
Will we be losing out on our reward nights at SPG come August ? As in the rewards nights accumulated every 50 nights ..
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
Anyone have hertz discount codes? All I have is the Marriott one but it’s not giving much of a discount. Thanks!!
Looking for recs for best bang for the Bonvoy points hotels outside the US? I found the Rayong Marriott for only 17,500 points (not sure if it’s nice in person) but that’s what prompted this curiosity
I have a 1 free night Marriott certificate anyone wanna buy it off me? Won’t be able to use
Vacation Question- Westin vs W (Paris)?
Going to philly for a weekend and planning to get a hotel for myself to just chill and unwind. What hotels do y’all recommend that have slightly luxurious vibes but decently priced? Was going to book the Sheraton downtown but not blown away by the reviews. Thanks !
Cockroach in my room at a Fairfield Marriott. What should I be doing? Am I eligible for any points? They’re offering 10k so far, which I think is quite low. For context I am a titanium elite and lifetime gold going to platinum next year
Bonvoy Titanium. Did not get a complimentary suite upgrade at a Ritz, but I was offered a suite upgrade for a cost. Meaning they had some available. Can they do that? If they have suites available, don’t they have to upgrade me? I know Ritz plays by slightly different rules, so curious
Know you travel too much when you can judge the status of the SPG integration by the now matching granola in Marriott and SPG.
TFW you actually get sick the day of the Super Bowl but know everyone's just going to think you're hungover if you don't make it to client site the next day
SO is an attorney as well and has been diagnosed with a serious illness. We can’t spend much time together due to risk of COVID exposure so it’s really hard for me emotionally. I don’t want it to affect me at work and faking a brave face is so draining. Just needed to vent, I’m so grateful for this group.
Owner of a small agency, here. Am considering making an offer to a partner at Accenture/another MBB to come help build our digital transformation practice. Advice on this strategy and on my outreach?
If I got offered a position at a big 4 firm for indirect tax. What do you think the appropriate counter offer would be? Do you think they would accept my counter?
Looks like my united status match is not gonna be completed by the time. Is there anyway to rebate? I am 4 segments short for gold and wonder if I can talk my way out
Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
A potential local role that I haven’t been allocated to versus a role that would require travel to four different cities. Have a 3 year old and one year old and can’t be on bench that long. Thoughts
Amex Platinum vs Chase Sapphire Reserve?
Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?
Ladies in this bowl - I have an interview with McKinsey coming up, what is appropriate dress attire? Not in the mood to wear a blazer for 4 hours during a Power Round…
Comey just got fired 👀
ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
This is a dumb question but since I haven't been on the bench in my time with PwC - what code do I bill to? I mean besides like PD for stuff and trainings. G&A?
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
I have a question for those at Amazon or any other FAANG organization. How does your company view transfers/relocations. For instance, you were brought in for a Sr. Mgr role in SF but want to go to DC. Is there an internal transfer portal or do you need to apply for the job? How is this viewed in the company? Thanks!
Padding my billable hours like
