Best hotels near Penn Station in NYC? Leaning towards Marriott properties because I have suite upgrades but also open to other options. Thanks!
found a $200 better hotel deal on SPGs app than through deloitte travel -- any chance there's a way to book through the app and expense it rather than book through deloitte travel?
Delta: “Let’s show our customers we appreciate them by extending status another year” United: “Let’s show our customers we appreciate them by having a guy hold up a sign that says so” 🙄 https://thepointsguy.com/news/united-thank-you-sign/ United Airlines

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
“Per diem” meal expenses are EXPLOITATION. $50 is not enough for a single meal at a hotel restaurant, let alone an entire DAY for food. Shifting travel costs onto your employees = evil. Yes i mad :<
What’s the work/life culture at WKNY vs Droga?
How do you prepare for case interviews with industry companies? I imagine the best way to understand their background is looking at the platform, their monetization strategies, earnings reports etc etc. What kind of possible questions could be asked in the case scenario?
Just curious. What are other firms doing as far as hybrid/wfh models? Vision is still unclear from leadership what our return to work plans are.

Genuinely interested in educating myself. Some people are applauding Simone Biles for withdrawing from Olympics. I am trying to understand how mental health suddenly becomes an issue in a few days? It isn’t like a bone fracture that happens suddenly. Wouldn’t Simone (who has gone through hundreds of competitions) have known the scrutiny an olympic demands to have not participated in the first place? A genuine request - please refrain from attacking or posting non-constructive comments.
When considering leaving a firm because of its negative impact on your mental health, how long did you wait before leaving? Follow up question: when interviewing at new places, how do you professionally explain you left because of how badly it was affecting your mental health without bad mouthing the firm?
Hi, I am on my H-1b visa and got an offer from another firm say A, so would need a visa transfer. Although I have another interviews lined up and I am expecting an offer from firm B. Would it be fine if I sign the offer with firm A and let them start the transfer process but once later I get offer from firm B, would it be fine if they start transfer process too and then decide which one to choose? Is that possible?
If you are working industry, 40 hours a week with a competitive pay and left B4 tax - can you share your new job title? Not sure what is out there that I could apply for.
