Nice hurricane leaving LGA tonight!
Anyone have any insight into the singles scene in FLL? Especially compared to NYC (love here). Never been thrilled with MIA based on my visits, and hoping FLL may be a bit more down to earth. 30s/M

What’s it like actually living in LA? From the Midwest and wanting to move to a bigger city (NYC, Bos etc) but the idea of LA entices me. Been as a visitor but curious as to actually living there TIA
Frequent flyers out of EWR. What’s the TSA-pre line like at Term C on a Monday morning at 06.30? Newbie here... thanks!!
Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀

Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.
http://nypost.com/2017/07/11/man-checks-single-can-of-beer-as-luggage-on-flight/.. just checked in a loose bottle of soda on Delta flight, will it make it 2 flights??
What do junior partners (2-3 yrs as partner) at Deloitte S&O make all-in? What is that figure at MBB, PwC, EY?
I was asked to take on formal supervisor duties without a promotion or raise for at least 1 year. Tips on how to negotiate this?
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Anyone with insight into salary (base/ bonus/ equity) for a Senior Project Mgr at Square Square
Really annoyed that during a majorly stressful campaign (for a client that quite frankly sucks lol) that in every meeting, forum etc Project Management isn’t EVER mentioned in the acknowledgements. I guess it’s normal but I guess since I almost lost my mind and had three anxiety attacks in one just one week alone I’m feeling salty. I can’t even begin to describe the mental, emotional and spiritual fortitude this took. Again I know I’m preaching to the choir, PM is such a thankless job but argh!
Headed to a holiday party. quick: give me three interesting non controversial topics to talk about
How do you avoid that sick feeling after flying? Not nausea sick, more like sore throat, dry chest sick. I always feel terrible after a few flights
Anyone have experience moving from a mid-tier firm to B4? What big differences have you found in work load and stress level if any? Is the switch really worth it. Currently A2 and on track to S1.
D-Day? Finest hour? I’m sure we’re all hearing these ridiculous references on the news to the fight on Covid and the vaccines. Sounds sacrilegious to me. This isn’t the greatest generation by a long shot. This is the generation of whom many flouted medical guidelines, put others at risk for selfish reasons. Whined about work from home. Recklessly traveled in droves over Thanksgiving. Sorry, but just an observation about the hubris that brought out the worst in too many people.
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
Marcus by Goldman just sent me an email, the day after I funded my HYSA with them, to let me know they are dropping the rate from .6 to .5. This feels like a con. Anyone else have this happen? Might as well just bundle all my Amex accounts and switch to Amex HYSA since it is currently at .6
Hey I am selling 6 domestic upgrades and 4 international upgrades for United Airlines. The only caveat is that the ticket(s) must be booked by the end of the month. Get them while they are hot!
I learned the other day that Deloitte counts PTO against your chargeability. Is this common with most firms? (ACN doesn't count PTO in chargeability calculations.)
EY expecting moms who are due in 2021: How will the new vacation policy impact maternity leave? I was banking on extending leave with accrued paid vacation time, is that no longer possible? Trying to talk to someone from the leave team ASAP but wondering if anyone might have some insight on how best to get the most out of maternity leave with the new policy.
I am so happy to not be grinding out 1065s, K1s, or 1120- RICs anymore . This role I’m talking to cpa firms about outsourcing work, tax software companies, mapping data, educating client representatives about tax issues, I’m making 30% more , less hours. Someone change my mind here with work being outsourced to India and automated - is the accounting profession about to change ? Especially public accounting ? I hated getting back some review points on returns .
