Getting rid of my Platinum Delta SkyMiles AMEX. Spoke with Delta - it doesn't help my priority for upgrades unless I spend more than $25k on the card. Only Delta Reserve AMEX helps priority.

Kpmg global services vs Deloitte consulting.. ServiceNow opening.. Which one would you suggest. Looking for good WLB and transparent team
Anyone aware of a Delta fast track I could sign up for? Not a status match, just a from scratch fast track. Know they have done this in the past often aimed at specific companies. Thanks :)
Hi Fishes.. what do yoiu recommend? Assurance in Deloitte USI or Financial Due Diligence in KPMG Global Services?
I am about to loose United Gold Status, can I match this status quickly on another airline? Which one would you suggest?
Just wondering if this triple dip would work: Book Marriott hotel through United MileagePlus Shopping giving 1 mile per $, Marriott points for stay and 6 points per $ for using Bonvoy Brilliant card?
Hertz SPG status match with points double dip is a game changer. Deuces Avis. 5 Star for Plat. Pres Circle for Plat100.
Congrats to all the folks that got promoted at PwC! And thank you fishbowl - I wouldn’t have known about PwC promotion time without you.
I feel like I can’t redeem my career. I’ve been out of paying work since I graduated. My bar was delayed due to a medical problem and since then I’ve only been able to find volunteering. I’ve been working for free for 2 years now. My network is tapped, my mentors are confused why I can’t find anything, my law school’s career services actually gave up on me, I don’t have the money to move to a new place, I have no other support and I can’t even go back to retail because nobody’s hiring out here.
Hi, How many of you were successful using "taking cara baby" (especially for newborn's sleep)? You can just say "me" or "not me" if you are busy. I am deciding if I should buy the course. Things are getting better on week 4, but it's not good and the hours between 6 and 10 pm are awful.
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
Best lounge T3 at LHR (quiet for infant to take a nap, good food and shower)? Flying BA business and have priority pass / plat amex.
Took my last CPA exam this morning and hopefully I can just be done. Dont think I did as well as I could have and really just want this process to be over.
Anyone working at Bain Capital Ventures who can provide their honest take on your job, work-life balance, firm culture, and people? I’m thinking about applying for the Associate position. I’m currently in my 2nd year of consulting. Thank you! Much appreciate it!
6 YoE in digital marketing, + 2 in business + Master's (not MBA). Not super technical, but I'm a functional subject matter expert (easily top 5% in North America, probably higher) in one DM field. I want to work at MBB and now seems like a really good time to give a try. What level should I aim for? Associate? How much time should I spend practicing cases before applying? Any specific areas to make sure I upskill to check the right box? Any tips on how to make it work?
***Oct 2021 Visa Bulletin Question*** Although the final action date for EB2 India is still stuck at Dec 2011, the date of filing chart has moved forward to Jul 2012. Question - My PD is May 2012. Will I be able to file my AOS based on the Date of Filing anytime soon? Please advise.
HCL or Capgemini, where the chances of getting US onsite is more? I have H1-B, worked there for sometime and came back for personal reasons and would like to travel again if I get a chance.
Anyone at Prophet? Would love to ask you a few questions about culture, work life balance, etc.
Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
How do you cope with a company that is really not transparent about compensation?have my review coming up and very difficult putting it in perspective
Weird combination of de-facto self-promotion under poor guise of advertising Becker’s products PLUS humble-brag of winning the EWS award. Gotta love it!
