With Michael Thomas out, who would you replace him with in a PPR league today, TY Hilton or Emmanuel Sanders? Like Sanders but worried about Brees after 4 weeks off.
Going on vacation tomorrow! Anyone have any good audiobook suggestions for the long flight?
W hotel ceiling leaked all over my baggage drenching my business clothes. Need advice from experienced travelers on what to demand from management.
Travel dinners: lobster appetizer,filet mignon, Parmesan roasted broccoli, honey seared carrots, and Pinot noir with some IPA's after for good measure. Dinner when home: hot pocket and campbell's soup
Has anyone noticed a huge drop in reliability with United's Wi-Fi service? I feel that in the last month or two my Wi-Fi rarely works and they just tell me it's "intermittent because of weather"
Travel budget crackdown... Flying Southwest 😱
Phuket best Marriott/spg hotels?
When leave for the airport half an hour after you planned but still make your flight due to delays and still have time to grab a snack and have overhead bin space. #blessed #thankyouweather
Best SPG property to stay in London?
If you achieve new platinum elite status on Marriott this week, how long does that last for?
Sometimes I volunteer to go on business trips I don't need to go on because that hour or two by myself in the hotel room is the only actual vacation I ever get.
Alixpartners fishes - have you started traveling again? Do you foresee your travel requirements reducing post covid
Hilton wouldn't let me in to the executive lounge even tho I have status and front desk verified at check in and check out I had access. How many points can I ask for?
Has anyone been close to 75 night platinum and talked your way into it? If so, how close? Debating if it's worth staying at SPG if there are better hotels since I won't get to 75.
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!
For those applying to schools in round 1 and round 2: are you sending thank you cards / gifts to your recommenders now or after they submit the round 2 LORs?
MBB? More like DPEK
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
Curious - what does it take to get fired in big 4 consulting? Anyone have stories they are willing to share?
Given $1k investment minimums for most corp bonds, what is a decent amount to start with? Weighing out the benefits of individual vs ETF
Book recs? I love reading self-help books but sometimes they bore me. Any good fiction series out there that can get me reading more often?
Hey everyone! Second year Deloitte analyst and I’ve been interviewing elsewhere, like many others. Just got told from the recruiter that I will be getting an offer from Apple as a Program Manager in San Jose (big jump lol). Right now I’m living in a MCOL city working remote, but I would need to move for this role (eventually lol). Any ideas on comp, living costs, etc. would be greatly appreciated. I’ve never been out to San Jose or San Francisco, so I’d appreciate any advice or DMs of any sort! Deloitte
Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!
I understand that traditional vs. Roth 401k depends on tax bracket now vs. expected tax bracket in retirement. And of course there is the risk of changing tax laws. But what if you just don't know? Do you just split 50/50? Or once you're making over a certain amount, does it naturally make more sense to lean towards traditional? Not sure what other people do and what income level they make the shift to traditional, if at all.
Got an offer with Microsoft for L60 recruiter.Any idea on the salary ranges for the same and also around the work culture.Will help in my decision making.
Would anyone at Deloitte be willing to provide a referral? I’m qualified for the role but just want to ensure my resume gets seen. TYIA
I haven’t seen this out there, but it came up in my college class; don’t record your Zoom sessions if there’s any interaction with students. It violates FERPA.
Has anyone taken a leave of absence for mental health/suicide/depression? I’m getting there but I’m also the primary earner in my house.
Just withdrew right before my interviews with Amazon and Microsoft this week. Still remember the good old days when I used to worship em and ask everyone for a referral but now just happy with non-FAANG industry exit, significant bump and amazing WLF.
I’m pretty sure colleagues at my firm are inflating their billable hours. Is this the norm? I suspect many of you will think this is obvious and/or that I’m naive but wtf? I find hitting 2200 is tough even with a good sized work load. Am I just expected to play the game? I don’t want to sound self-righteous but if most are lying just to make the requirement, then maybe the requirement should be lower.
Has anyone had Marriott gift you the next level of status if you’re only a few nights short of the requirement at end of year?
