After the layoffs we had, most people were offered a 90 day notice period, during which they have to be on-call, but there are those that get put on multiple accounts (continued)
Anyone know when holiday layoffs are being scheduled for this year? First week of December or end of January?
I have points (American, CSR, Marriott), however, I feel as if I’m not very good at finding the best way to leverage them. Anyone here have a special talent/hobby of helping those of use who don’t have a lot of points get the most out of them?
What to do when a manager is trying to get you fired by making up their own standards JUST for you? Cont..
To all my fellow Consultants who have been laid off: wishing you all good luck 🍀 and good fortune... keep your head up, good things lie ahead. I hope you all find something soon!
For Delta status challenge, do MQDs and MQMs need to be earned after the challenge starts, or do MQD/Ms I’ve earned before the challenge count?
I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate. There was a lady at the sink completely topless boobs all out all over the place and I think she was trying to take a half sponge bath in the sink, like taking wet paper towels and wiping her arm pits. Also no mask on. This is weird, right?
You all think rent will go down in light of the CDC updates and delta variant spread? Was about to sign a lease for September but thinking prices might fall if I wait
Why is the consulting industry still not facing the music for all the useless air travel and resulting impact on climate change ?
I have a Delta voucher that expires in a few days. Any tips, loopholes, etc on how I can "extend" the expiration date? It sucks because I can't transfer it to a friend or anything.
Biden Administration Tipping Point? I’m starting to think the wheels are coming loose on the Biden administration train. The Delta variant is still eating up the news cycle and the idiotic back and forth on masks and Fauci’s nefarious plot/imminent sainthood are keeping most of the debate away from the simmering underlying issues. My guess is that a year from now we’ll be looking at mid terms no longer defined by a pandemic response but by inflation, deficit, crime and immigration.
I’m at the airport, exactly 1 year after my previous flight. People are mobbing the gate even though their group has not been called yet. Actually I don’t think boarding has even started. Nature is healing
At a new firm and right away I knew I wasn’t going to get along with one partner. Had a conflict with one of his associates early on. Everyone else is cool. Got into it with the partner and he told me he didn’t need my help on his matters anymore. The cool associates are still asking if I can pitch in cause they’re swamped. I’m a nice guy (despite what the partner and uncool associate may say), so I’m helping out. I’m the guy that gets fired and shows up the next day. Results TBD.
I’ve been told by my firm that I need to get a corporate amex card. I’m new to consulting- can I still use my own credit card to get the points and expense that way? If it’s the corporate card can I still get points for it also or does it only go to EYP? Curious to know if a corporate amex is even a good thing or the benefits for it. Thanks!
I’ve been working at a toxic agency and I just got laid-off. What I Say: “I’m so sad this happened.” How I Feel:
Delta has a 75,000 miles per ticket cap when receiving award miles!! That just made me so mad 😡
Does anyone have any recommendations for free training (Such as advanced Macros, CISA review, etc)?
Im completely burned out on the weekly zoom chats I’ve scheduled with friends and coworkers to “catch up since we can’t see each other face to face.” Anyone else?
Interviewed at Amazon made it to loop and they said good fit for Amazon but not the role. Recruiter said she would like me to go for Vendor Manager role. I now have an informational call with the manager fir another role. Has this happened to anyone and if so any advice?
BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
Is getting an Ed.D worth the cost for someone with no aspirations other than staying in the classroom? I’m already at the top of the pay scale, so I wouldn’t get anymore money.
Start wearing masks!!!! Doesn’t have to be medical masks, just as long you are covering your nose and mouth. In NYC 75% of people are now wearing masks. Just walked past a morgue fridgerated truck.
Do mba admissions consider the rank/prestige of tech companies when evaluating candidates?
Question about754 depreciation. I feel confused when receive Lower tier K1 with sometime shows as 13v; but sometime shows at 20ah as other information. How to treat correctly in these situations(13v and 20ah) Thanks
Welcome to the bowl. Lets keep the topic of discussion around Bristlecone and have respect for everyone
Is it fine to leave current firm after a few months and get back to my prior firm’s different practice? I liked it more at my old firm, and I just wanted to choose my practice based on my interests. It was hard to switch practices when I was within the firm. Is ditching my new employer for no acute reason frowned upon?
I need opinions because I’m slightly upset. I recently got a really good job offer so I went out to dinner with my gf to celebrate. Dinner went great. At the end, I tipped 13% because it was easier math (in all honesty, didn’t even think much about it I just wanted a solid number). She got slightly upset that I hadn’t tipped the customary 15-20% and then made a comment that she didn’t like that. Jokingly, I responded by saying there were things that she did too that I didn’t like. She kinda…
just told I need to reduce my charge hours from 45 to 40 / week. Not reducing my work scope, just amount of time I can charge. I know I shouldn't be angry, given that the bench is huge, but still sad
Just out of curiosity, and if you’re comfortable sharing, has anyone here had minor plastic surgery and how did you request time off?
