Going to India from Atlanta in December. Any recommendations for points/miles bookings?
Current standing for ref: delta - 150k, Marriott- 300k and Amex 50k
Does anyone have both Marriott credit cards (Amex and chase) ? I already have the chase and like getting the free night award for just a $95 annual fee. The Amex 125k point offer seems good, wonder if I should get both or if that’s too much for me.
So I will hit ambassador with “Bonvoy” tomorrow night. Considering it’s only May, should I switch to IHG properties and go for Intercontinental Ambassador as well? Is there any benefit for loyalty?
Don’t forget to spend your $100 Marriott voucher for Ambassador members by 1/31. Just received my box of chocolates because nearly everything else on that site was out of budget
10 year anniversary coming up! Could go somewhere for 3-4 days over Memorial Day out of Chicago. I have plenty of points on Hilton, United, Amex mr, CSR. Any ideas? We would like to go int’l
What is the “GDY” Marriott code equivalent for Hilton Hotels? And what hotel is “residence inn” equivalent at Hilton? Trying to get a 2 bedroom suite. Thanks!
I can do NYE in Boston or DC. Which should I choose and what should I do? (Even better if I can use my SPG/Marriott points)
SPG Hotels in India screwing me over by charging mandatory fees and taxes for NYE dinner when I can go party at better places for half the price. #thanksbutnotthanksspg

Y'all. Hyatt and Hilton are doing instant status matches right now. Go get it. No such thing as having too many statuses.
Any senior Managers here ?
I work in a project right now with loads of contractors and they all seem to be earning so much more and also have the flexibility to manage their life better. Kinda intrigued by it.
I don’t understand why we are all obsessed with the title and company. Will probably wait till I have more YOE to move onto contracting personally, but that’s cause I am a creature of habit and like security.
I am appearing for an interview next week for .Net profile. What should I expect in the interview Resume based questions or DS and Algo related questions?
Anyone from MS Menlo free to answer any q’s?
We have some at my firm leaving to be a direct entry partner at EY consulting. He was told he will benefit from the split the same way all other EY partners will. Anyone know if that is accurate?
Serious Question: Why is every single burglar in advertising a white male. It almost seems more racist towards black men that they’re not cast for these roles because it would appear “stereotypical”.
Anyone know of any good places to look for jobs that require JDs only and not necessarily a law license? After 7 years I’m sick of practicing.
Any news of hikes at Oracle?
I beling to Corry West org. And there's no clarity on hikes for this year.
What would you do?
- You have your annual review with your manager
- They promote you up a level, you see your new shiny salary and title
- End meeting
- Get a DM to meet with manager the same week
- Get told that your title was “a mistake” and that you would keep the salary and but not the title. Due to a communication with upper leadership.
- 2 months later your title updates in Messaging channels and with HR with the leveled up title.
What do you do?
I feel like I’m failing in my new job. Counter-intuitively, I think it’s because I’m too juniorized. How do I bring this up with my VP without coming off difficult? More below.
Been trying for 9 months and pretty discouraged. Met with dr and going to try IUI next cycle. Can I hear some successful IUI stories for a pick me up? Also very worried about chance of twins but also doesn’t sound terrible at this point. Crazy how outlook changes over time.
Losing two key accounts. Layoffs look pretty much inevitable. Any agencies hiring a Project Manager in the LA/OC area?
Can someone tell me what is the role of a Salesforce Developer/Technical Consultant at Salesforce company? I thought they used to hire Salesforce Developers for support profiles only.
In your experience, which company do you think is more well known? RSM or Grant Thornton?
Thanks in advance.

How is consulting pay in Canada? I’m based in Europe and pay is pretty bad relative to US, but both my SO and I agree that we’d rather not live in the US or impose US citizenship on our kids when we have them (also it looks pretty hard to get visas in the first place). Would Canada offer good pay (not as good as tier 1 cities in US but higher than London/Paris/Lux etc) or would the move not be worth it?
How would a transition from industry to consulting look like for me? I am 2 years out of undergrad (T30) and have worked at a small consulting firm doing market strategy consulting for many of the major pharmaceutical companies since graduation. Long term, I see myself more in strategy/ management consulting due to the higher pay and earnings potential. I’m currently 25, how easily could I move into MBB, tier 2, or the big four consulting, and what would this transition look like?
I just realized I have zero plans for the super bowl. Anyone in NYC need company? I'll bring 6 cold ones.

EY 🐟 - Staff here with MBA. Any way for me to hop into the Senior MBA band when I promote?
My sister is thinking of going to UNC, IU Kelley or Fordham (honors) for undergrad. Costs are the same for UNC and Kelley while Fordham would be 10k cheaper after aid. If she’s hoping to do consulting or IB down the line, what would be the best option for her? I’m based in NYC so she could potentially live with me if Fordham. I know UNC and Kelley are targets for IB/Consulting but Fordham’s proximity to the city + 10k cheaper is hard to beat. She’s international. Appreciate the help!
