For a flight NAM - Bangkok, what airline is best (Emirates, Qatar, Ethiad) for status match with US airlines (Delta, United, AA)?
Ok, which firm thought United’s Lottery Bonus plan was a good idea? I know at least one of you on here worked on this idea.
FTW: W Hotel in Chicago gives free equinox access during visit. Now I only need time for the gym.
OW 🐠, how is the culture? Do you travel a lot? Is it common to work on strategy projects or is it more likely to be staffed on implementation?
I asked the waitress at my hotel bar what time her shift was ending so we could hang out, and she shut me down. I think she did so because I was wearing my MAGA hat. How many points should I demand?
Need 6 Marriott nights to titanium (spend doesn’t matter). 1 - would any hotel manager cut you a deal? (Ie if 6 nights is 60k; let me pay 30k and get the nights and I won’t use the room?); 2 - where are cheapest Marriott hotels? I found 10k per night in burbs of Chicago? 3 - would any cheap Marriott let me run this scam remotely? (Ie call Abilene Texas, check me in without my showing up)
Anyone have a chase credit card? Have you taken advantage of the pay yourself back option? Share your secret tactics please! :)

Alternative travel taxable? I did alternative travel for the first time and I noticed my latest paycheck was $500 less than usual. Tax deduction also up 500 on the pay stub. Nobody told me this..
Recommendations for a ‘low-cost’ gym on the UES? Around E. 75th to 85th street preferably. There is a NYSC on E. 76th but they need my credit card on file and I don’t feel comfortable with that
That time when Delta had to re-park the plane to get closer to the gate and I almost missed my connecting flight. Happy ending but come on, Delta! 😡
Middle seat on the last flight out and now delayed because of missing flight attendant... who did I wrong in a past life? 😭
What are all those amateurs doing on the plane? I need to email Delta and check if there are Consultant-only flights...
For those that fly Southwest, do you ever book business select or just buy cheapest fare?
Looking into Vegas trip. Are there any SPG hotels on the strip you'd recommend? Or would I have a better time not staying at at Starwood hotel?
Best way to write an airline complaint letter? They offered $150 right after flight but felt like not enough. Would you list out problems and have them counter or do you say you want $XXX?
Have an interview tomorrow for a firm I've always thought to be out of reach for me. So nervous I have had 3 panic attacks.
From a discussion in our Live happy hour, here's a good infographic on real vs fake Japanese whisky distillers due to lax labelling laws and the global rise in popularity.
Have a waste of space direct report. Have been optimistic about training up until I stumbled upon him writing a paper about the project. Shady or nah?
Digital Strategy M ready to move away from consulting and searching (a lot) for a connection into Cloudflare for a PM role - does anyone know somebody there?

How important is getting a Six Sigma Green/Black belt? Does it make a difference in comp/offers/projects/promotion?
How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.
Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
Who else is too burned out to even apply to other jobs? And for those of you who managed to apply and interview successfully while working - how did you do it? Any concrete, tactical advise would be very much appreciated.
What do you guys say to introduce yourselves on zoom? I said my name and team, then stopped for the next person to go…everyone stayed silent for a bit because they expected more, and they looked like they thought I disconnected lol 😭
Media 🐠: Other than money and the potential of better work/life balance, what other reasons attract you to a client side role?
How do y’all quiet the noise in your head that’s telling yourself “they’re only interviewing me to check off the diversity box”? Heading into another round for a VP role that I feel unqualified for. It’s hard to not think this is the classic Rooney Rule at play. Would love any tips.
Are there any good Marriott properties in Vegas? All I’m seeing are convention centers on points
Do firms honor online MBAs for the increase in compensation? I've been in consulting for a year and I'm considering online programs bc MBAs get paid significantly more (although we do the same work). Thoughts?
I am in a dilemma in deciding between boutique opportunity and waiting for MBB interviews. I have received a corporate consulting offer with ok pay, amazing work life balance and high quality colleagues (Almost all MBB) but the title is not high from Country A I am interviewing for final round at MBB in Country B (high compensation and low tax)-they have a hard time scheduling interviews because they are very busy (even after I told them I have offers) I am interviewing for the first round at MB
Does anyone here work at Cohn Reznick? How is the culture? How is the promotion track? I’ve been through 2 busy seasons as a senior so far. How likely is it I would make manager after 1 year coming from a different firm?
