I have 45 nights this year at Marriott, what’s the cheapest best way to get the other 5 nights? I have no travel planned but would like to get 50 for plat status. Should I burn points or is there an efficient way to do this?
Best place to stay in Singapore? “Bonvoy” lifetime status so prefer those. I like to swim and the Westin and St. Regis have pools but could pass those up if the Ritz, JW, or others are worth it
I feel like Marriott Bonvoy is only getting worse. I was assigned a new ambassador, who would intentionally wait for one business day before responding to my email questions tbc
Any of you book a nice vacation a few months out? I have lots of Bonvoy points and trying to book some international properties (Bali etc) while rates are low.. any ideas for good deals still
KPMG Fast Track Hilton Gold Status https://www.hiltonhhonors.com/ProcessLanding/ProcessLanding/?lp=KPMG&cid=OM,HN,kpmgfasttrack,LP2010
Second week with at least one day with no hot water at the Westin. Feel bad complaining but it’s really annoying. Should I ask for points? Who do I ask? My ambassador?
Best Hilton proprerites in Omaha, NE?
Entire square block around my Hilton in Seattle lost power an hour ago with no sign of what the problem is or a solution. Of course this would happen when I'm farthest from exits on the highest floor.
Anyone have tips for the St. Regis NY? I’ve never stayed at a St. Regis, so wondering what to expect. I’ve heard the butler service can be really great, although no idea how to get the most of it. Any recommendations or ideas?
Westin, Conchal, Costa Rica, anybody have an opinion/review to share? Looking at a week with her Hotness in February.
SPG --> Bonvoy. How long before people don't know what SPG means? Any other now-extinct programs that consulting longtimers miss?
Some construction work going on in the room next to me at 11pm central time here at the Westin! How many points is this worth?
Have 46 nights on Marriott Bonvoy this year - no more work travel so if I want to get to 50 I’d have to stay 4 nights personal - have my plat status renewed for next year so staying the 4 nights would only be for getting the 5 suite night upgrades - never had them before so wondering if they’re worth spending ~$700 in essence just for them? What would u guys do?
How do I get Hilton to match my Marriott platinum elite status? I was just bounced around to like 4 different contacts and got nowhere
You guys are making me soft! Checked into a Sheraton and found a used bar soap in the shower. First thought: how many points? Then I reminded myself that I make mistakes at work too. Moving on!
How typical is it to exit to a software development job? I handed in my notice and I’m doing that.
With inflation coming in, anyone asking clients to raise rates. With the margin pressures internally, client cost pressure and rise in prices it’s getting frustrating.
What kind of client work/industries is shalom is DC doing? What are salaries like for 3rd year manager? Recruiter is telling that work is meaningful. Thoughts??
Currently at EY senior 3 up for promotion to manager just interviewed with Deloitte and people seem great! Salary increase is amazing… is this a good decision hmm… you guys tell me. I have no issues with EY but my salary is not what I would like it to be and when I promote I don’t think they will come close to offer from Deloitte.
Saw a post recently about wlb being worse at a startup than consulting. Interviewing with an unicorn which is expected to ipo in may be 5 years. So trying to get an idea of what the consensus is based on folks who have already left. Role is semi-technical- solution architect.
After coming back from the short Thanksgiving break I’ve come to the realization that I am burnt out (or just entirely hate my job/life). I’ve been dreading work for the past 3-4 months. I’ve realized that the occasional extended weekend trips/breaks aren’t enough. I was originally planning on taking just a few days off at the EoY, but I’m going to now take 2 weeks off to completely detach. If you’ve been feeling the same way as I have, I encourage you to take as much time off as you can 🥲😪
Any fish working or have worked at PwC Deals Strategy (NYC based)? Compensation? Culture? Career trajectory?
Expecting a CMAAS experienced associate offer from Pwc transferring from audit. When can i expect a senior promotion and what is the salary i can expect? Is it negotiable?

Exit opps after completing the BAP? Trying to go to a 2nd tier strategy firm. Typical for people to make that jump?
Anybody else have any fear/anxiety around flying? This just randomly developed out of nowhere a couple years ago (I used to love flying!) and I don't know how to fight it as I start having to travel here and there for client site work. I know that realistically the chances of a plane crash are super low (not afraid of driving and that's much higher), but for some reason my mind won't get off the "but not zero" part and I just get so tense and scared.
One Crunch or All Crunch plan? I don’t foresee myself going to multiple locations, but there’s a good promotion going on right now…
Hi fishes, I am currently in a project.what's process of changing project in TCS?? Is it even possible
It's my first day at a different big 4 than my tag and the only thing I have to do is an hour zoom call, then the next two days are 3 hr zoom calls. Is this normal? PwC had me doing 9 hrs of training the first day lol
Got reached out to by a recruiter at McMaster-Carr. Looks concerning from online reviews, but comp package appears to be amazing. Is the horrible culture just for management trainee program? I would not be going into that. How are other groups around the company? Also interested in hear total comp for folks with ~1 year experience if possible. Thanks!
Ended up owing $700 tax.. nothing much to file just w-2 numbers and that were it - used turboCurrently putting 6% to meet company match, would putting more into 401k avoid owing tax at the year-end?
