I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight. It looks like it’s best to use them by booking travel through Amex but I’m confused about the bit that says I’ll get a statement credit when I pay with points. Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?
Found this gem in Calcutta! Seems like the most devaluation of points ever? Something to Zero?!
When you’re on point to lead a call, and your manager is on the call, is it normal for them to constantly “add points”/interrupt you every minute? I’ve had a couple managers and noticed that every one of them that did this, didn’t add any value beyond what I was saying most of the time. On the contrary, when I had SMs or MDs on the call, they never interrupted.

I have ADHD and my brain goes a million miles a minute which makes it difficult to express myself. I really want to ramble less and make points both more quickly, and succinctly. I’d also like to improve my delivery and persuasion when speaking to my team and clients both conversationally and while presenting work. Does anyone happen to have videos or online courses that they could recommend? I’d really appreciate it!

For those of you who spent a long time in big law (at least 10 years but more along the lines of 15+), when did you know it was time to do something else (maybe in the law, maybe not)? I don’t know if it’s wfh or just the work now, but I’m finding myself getting amazingly frustrated at things that barely bothered me before. I had an argument with opposing counsel last week and was seeing red for hours after that, and little things seem to bother me much much more than they would have before

I have the following SPACs positions. I bought each of them at bad points, luckily they make up less than 5% of my portfolio but I want to maybe rotate them out or consolidate. Thoughts on the following: CCIV, FIII, NGA, SPXZ, STPK
Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?
Received offer of 92.5k and no signing bonus for GPS Consultant. Had spoken with recruiter about 95k before interviews and have heard of many others receiving 5-10k signing bonus. Should I push for both or just salary? How should I ask for signing bonus specifically?
