Been on the phone with American Airlines for two hours… my flight is in 4.5 hours. If my first name is missing the list letter on my reservation/boarding pass, will it pass?

You should be fine, especially if you have a long name. My husband has 2 last names with 16 characters and it often gets cut off or condensed. It also might get combined with Mr.


Yes, don’t worry


My boarding passes used to merge by first name and middle initial creating a completely different name. Was always fine.

Hey guys,

I joined my current company 1.5 years ago & my plan was always to use this company as a stepping stone to increase my base pay.

Since I've joined this company, I've got massive hikes plus a promotion, however, I'm sure the growth is going to stagnate in coming years. (I joined the company at 21LPA and my current salary is 33LPA)

I wanted to check if it's a good idea to put down my papers in the coming months and look for a new job? Is it worth burning bridges?

The agency I work for is utterly incompetent in so many ways. Nearly every month, I’m blown away by new and unique examples of this.

It’s a marvel.

Hi ladies! I’m moving from London to New York in the next few months. I’d love some tips about neighbourhoods to look up and which website is best place to look for apartments? Office is downtown.

Had a final round interview on 12/15 (wed) and it’s been a week and a half. I was told I should hear back by last Wednesday either way but I didn’t hear anything yet. I had positive feedback from the hiring manager during the interview but now I feel a bit upset. Should I follow up at this point?


Guys, need inputs

My sister, who has completed Masters in mathematics wants to follow the career path for Data Scientist. She knows some parts of it but looking for a course or curriculum which would help with relevant knowledge and certifications etc.

Which would be good? Upgrad, applied ai, ineuron, or coursera courses?
