Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?
Can we pay for hotel with our personal cards and manually expense or does it have to be corporate AMEX like flights?
How much do you keep in your checking acct?

Worth going for delta platinum Medalian after gold .. vs starting routes on AA to make status?
I’ll be traveling internationally on Delta with 3 pcs of checked luggage (free because I’m platinum) One of them weighs >50lbs. Will they waive the overweight baggage fee if I ask nicely?
Just got my first Delta Porsche transfer (tight connection at DTW). Not sure if I can walk between terminals anymore... 💁🏽♂️
Best time of year to status match? Moving to city that doesn’t have United hub in January.
Overnight flight delay on American due to defect. I paid 300 for a hotel room expecting American to reimburse. They are offering 20k, 200 voucher, & $120 check. AA is refusing to reimburse full 300.
Late flight and Uber driver leaves with my luggage. Chase his car. Another car honks. Both to no avail. Now late. Suitcase has work clothes for tmrw. Working on getting bag back now. Lesson learned.
I have 40 United PlusPoints from my Platinum status that I won’t be using this year - looking to sell to anyone interested! I’m not planning to travel internationally and it’s not worth it to me to upgrade domestic. If you’re interested, shoot me a DM! Thanks
How is spend at Marriott calculated? Just the nightly rate? Or the final bill that includes all sorts of tax?
Any agencies closed today for the inauguration?
How does the pension plan work at Deloitte? I’ve been working here for 3 years and never knew Deloitte offered a pension. I see a balance on my account but it says my statement is suppressed
TMI question, but i stopped nursing my second kid 2 years ago and I’m still producing a trickle of milk. Does this ever go away? I even had undersupply, so it’s not like I have bionic boobs!
Can anyone share info on what salary + bonus I should base my expectations on at Deloitte coming in as a consultant w/ two years industry experience + undergrad?
An ECD reached out to me for a role. Interviewed with 4 additional employees after talking to the ECD. How many days do I wait to figure out the next steps? Maybe they are interviewing other candidates and need some time to decide? How should I go about my next moves?
Ladies & Gentlemen, with one month left in Q2, some will fall short of our numbers. Others will hit them. I can’t speak for all of us here, however, I can speak for myself. That being said, I will NOT be one that comes up short of my number. Now, this leads me to you all, to present a question. If you have to prospect, if you’re looking for new business, is it worth $1500 to put 95% of your prospecting process on autopilot? If so, let’s chat.

Coming here, to get the opinions of the professional working-class left (and maybe some moderate/-right) who frequent the bowl. I want to attend Xmas with my extended family. ie. Many aunts, uncles, cousins, 2nd cousins, cousins' father/mother-inlaws etc. So whole age group 0-65 I am in Florida, and they are in NJ. I do not want to wear a mask. I will be asking the hosts if that is OK. If they say no, I will not attend. If they say its fine I will. What is this audience's opinion on that?

Greenberg Atl first year pay?
Signed an offer with another consulting firm. Linkedin recruiter got back to me for an interview with a role I’m interested in but the pay will be 10k less base and most likely a much lower TC. Been wanting to exit to tech but the other consulting firm seem ok. I feel like tech interviews are harder to come by. Should I just settle and decline the LinkedIn interview?

The babies that I bake fill a volcano. I’m clogging up the kill. My wretched baby paste requires Drano!
Wonder if people who claim to be more effective and efficient thanks to WFH and wish to never go back to the office are the same people whose jobs are more likely to get off-shored/ outsourced? At the end of the day, if it's just a transactional, "follow-the script" kind of job requiring minimal interaction/relationship/collaboration with other team members, why would the companies be incented to keep paying salaries + benefits when they can just as easily ship these jobs overseas?
