Bit of a niche post here but FYI: if you have a points reservation & don’t confirm the certificates immediately & the hotel changes categories, your reservation will incorrectly update to the new rate
Overheard at the airport today. Older, self-proclaimed “non-points chaser” bitching on the phone about people with status boarding ahead of his Group 3. 🤣 #Overheardattheairport #Status
Hotel ran out of power on my overnight stay. Had to move up the road to other hotel for the night (forced by hotel). They offered 12k SPG points, reasonable?
D’oh... Realized I accidentally booked the Sheraton instead of the Westin across the freeway, for the same number of points (7,000). 😞🤚
If you are on bench and if you quit, do you still need to serve 2 weeks of notice period or you can leave in 1 week?
Just financed a new vehicle and the finance company will only allow payment with a debit card. Are there any debit card deals out there that do cash back or are worth looking into to pay off a ~30k vehicle to get some cash back or points?
Are there any meaningful certifications or learning modules I can do while on the bench? Been on here a week and need to charge a code other than G&A or else 💀
When you resign and you happen to be on the bench at that time. After giving two week notice, so you start to tell colleagues that you are leaving and schedule time to catch up with them in groups/ 1:1 (since you have time); or just wait until your last to send out farewell email to inform all the people you’ve interacted with at work?
Complained about room service that made me throw up at the Sheraton and they're asking me how many SPG points I think are fair for them to give me... Any advice?
Experienced hire that just finished training with new company and currently on the bench. I’m based in a small office with minimal consulting folks - should I be going into the office?

What happened to the online form to request missing points on Marriott? I’m missing all my green choice points from the last 2 months. Do we have to call to get those added back now?
When you're on the bench, do you reach out for work or use the time to relax until next engagement?
Had lower utilization this year than normal due to being rolled off and on different engagements with downtime in between. Nothing performance-related. Even though it was out of my hands (cont)
Accenture bench is deeeeep. Especially strategy.
"See??? It's not just women (points to me/only woman) who have to worry about what to wear!!" - senior telling the team he wasn't wearing a tie, only a jacket, to a meeting. Cont...

Used to be in a quant group. We had an underperforming staff who we let go. He claimed to HR he was discriminated against bc he was an MBA. To which they responded: that's not a protected class.
Delta drink vouchers...enjoy!
I have no idea how to get motivated again. I am a legit zombie that sits and types for hours and hours without talking to anyone. I feel like a shell of a person. And nobody in management cares about any associates well being in this remote environment. I’m a person who likes to talk about things, but I am well aware that nobody in management would even want to actually do anything to help. Is anyone else feeling the same?
Looking for a luxury 1bd apartment (stainless steel appliances, nice pool, etc.) for less than 1.5K. Is this realistic? I was looking at Gables Water Street & Crest at Las Colinas ( both are in Las Colinas area but also considering Uptown and Frisco). Any suggestions?

Any tips for transitioning to maternity clothes? Did you put away “normal” clothes that didn’t fit or choose a section of the closet for maternity and bigger sizes? We have limited space, but I also don’t want to get too cozy in my new size large clothes and forget about all of the pretty, smaller things I used to be able to wear. 😩 Only first trimester but have already had to go up a size and feeling scared.
Anyone book an award stay at Hilton properties? Do you pay tax with the points or just points?
I am just starting year 4 as an associate doing 100% med mal defense trial work. I know our insurance guidelines require partners to do a lot with so much $$$ on the line, but in 3+ years, I have only: attended 36 depos (12/yr or 1/mo) of those 36, I: noticed 3 (1/yr) and presented 3 (1/yr) I have attended 1 mediation and tried 1 small claims “trial” I feel like I am losing my attorney skills, rather than improving them. Can I expect more opportunities or do I need to make a switch?
Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).
