Any recommendations for spg hotels in Indy?
Realized I won’t make SPG gold elite by the end of the year. Will I have to start over again in 2019 with a balance of 0 or will I still have my 23 nights balance to forward with?
Perks of growing up poor. I find I am not attracted to or mirror a lot of the expensive behaviors/ habits like most of my consulting friends. Perfectly happy staying at a Marriott or la fitness, I don’t have that desire to always stay at the Ritz Carlton or be an equinox member.
This week's announcements suck for SPG and AA loyal travelers. 2016: SPG is going away and AAdvantage program is changing for the worst.
Anyone stay at the Ritz-Carleton in D.C.? I’ve never stayed at a Ritz location so I’m curious to hear what to expect. Will be in D.C. for a conference so my firm is covering the trip.
Best hotel in NOLA? Booking my parents a weekend getaway for my Dad’s birthday. Prefer to go with to Starwood, Marriott or Hyatt properties. Thanks
My boyfriend, also a consultant, has double the amount of Marriott nights that I have. I feel so inferior.
Barack is in the Waldorf Astoria!
Booking 13 rooms next weekend for a group at Marriot. Have SPG/marriot/CSR cards. Best way to maximize points? 😨
Folks who went to Bali - where did you visit? Thinking of 4 nights Nusa Dua (Ritz Carlton), 4 in Ubud, 3 in Seminyak/Jimbaran or Gili Air. Are these worth seeing and am I missing any must see spots?
United reward plus has awesome offer if you book Marriott through them to get extra 2,500miles per stay if anyone is interested....or maybe it late to the game 🤷♂️
I wish I’d bought stock in the company that sells paper to the company that prints the Books of Mormon that get stashed in Marriott hotel rooms. Think of all the new books due to the SPG merger...
Looking for a relaxing SPG hotel for a 3-4 night trip sans kids. Needs to be accessible enough that we don’t spend all our time time traveling. Leaning towards Mediterranean. Thanks!
I’m 23 nights away from bonvoy titanium. I already have the Amex business and chase personal for the 30 elite night credit. Any other good hacks to get there with no significant travel planned?
Has anyone been asked to sign a $0.00 check in the lounge? This happened to me for the first time today (at a Westin). Guess they are looking for tips from the cashless?
This horse has been beaten to death but suggestions on Amex Plat vs Brilliant for Marriott loyalists? I already have Gold that gives 4X on dining and supermarkets (my biggest expenses) and don’t wanna part with that. No I don’t want CSR, thank you.
Just read that there are no caps to rolling over funds from 401k to IRA. Is there any benefit to keeping my money in a 401k vs an IRA? I was thinking maybe employee matching would be impacted as I'm not sure if the process involves my 401k balance at all or just the contributions. I would want to roll over my 401k into an IRA to be able to invest in a wider range of stocks and not just the selection made available by my employer. https://www.investopedia.com/401-k-vs-ira-contribution-limits-4770068#:~:text=While%20there%20are%20annual%20contribution,qualified%20retirement%20plans%20into%20IRAs.
Hey guys, How's role for deputy manager in jio? Is it entry level or mid level? What is the nature of work? How much compensation should be expected
96% of physicians are vaccinated yet <50% of nurses are. What do you think is causing this discrepancy in vaccination rates? https://www.forbes.com/sites/judystone/2021/06/28/covid19-vaccination-rates-are-poor-among-healthcare-workershow-can-we-do-better/
Guys .. has salary credited for you?
Desi folks (male specifically) - how have you dealt with marital issues? It’s unfortunate but men are not known to show emotions. Me and my wife have had so many issues. I also can’t initiate a divorce due to a child in our marriage. I feel like mentally I’m not in a good place and really lost on what to do. I’m constantly depressed, have contemplated suicide and just overall not in a good place but I’m keeping this all to myself and not talking to anyone
Scored a super creative in-house position and today is my LAST DAY in litigation! Weirdly serendipitous how this new role came to be mine. Litigation been a journey - grateful for the experience and everything I learned - but SO excited to be moving on to my new company! Cheers with me y’all 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

Are white nails unprofessional? I’m speaking on a high-profile panel (via Zoom) day after tomorrow and I want a color that will pop (b/c why bother otherwise?) but still go with everything (choosing among a blue, yellow, pink, or red jacket). Also considering a light pink/peach nail color. FWIW, my nails are quite short. Like former violinist short. Thanks!
Accenture folks, I have an offer from Accenture Strat which denotes up to 9% annual bonus/raise. Is this realistically achievable or are they bluffing?
Since quarantine started, I'm doing everything EXCEPT exercising. It's super weird. I am like just not able to do it. I cook fresh healthy meals, cleaning, reading, working, catching up on sleep, pursuing my passion & side interests, started taking supplements, got a standing desk, walk around in meetings.. but NO dedicated working out. And I can't get myself to do it! Help!
Desi Consultants!! - who all are thinking of hiring Sima Taparia (after watching Indian matchmaking on Netflix) for finding your future significant other?
