Smooth sailing - much better than bus. Travel time Acela is often only marginally shorter than the regional

Often is a strong overstatement - in my 200+ rides that has been true once

Done both, super easy, bar on board, great way to travel. Agreed Acela is better than the regional but honestly not by a ton, although the price would suggest otherwise.

Amtrak is the best. Like the same amount of time. If you are not paying for it the Acela is better, but the original is great as well.

All of the above - Amtrak rocks

FWIW: I have taken the train to NYC on Friday mornings a few times and I am able to work and attend meetings (not ones where I have to present or talk) using the free wifi.

Thanks for the reviews! Looking for a last minute one for Friday and prices are roughly the same for both rn. $100-125 even for coach on the northeast regional

Acela is nice but the cafe car on the ne regional is unparalleled. Sit on the side facing the water and you get a table and great views for a part of the trup

You can get tickets so cheaply ($40) if you’re able to plan ahead. Wifi is good too

[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best. Alternatively I have an option of relocating to Canada as well. This process should be fairly quick and easy. My question is - 1. Should I opt for Canada or wait for US Visa? 2. Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA

I used to be passionate about my firm’s people. Loved coaching junior folks and paying it forward with all the great mentoring I received early in my career. But my firm’s values and senior leadership priorities have incentivized a purely numbers vs people culture. It’s made the job so much less fun and personally fulfilling. Anyone also struggling with this and any advice?

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
