I’m supposed to travel for a team training for my current company Tues-Thurs. I’m heavily connected to this training; I planned the agenda. But the team leadership is terrible for my mental health, and I don’t want to lie to my coworkers. Should I quit Mon and decline to travel?

New to travel life. Once you have SPG/Marriott status, do you have to ask for a room upgrade, or are they automatic when available?
Do you prefer short term travel around a few places or long term travel in just one location? This is considering that you'd have to do work on some level on the trips.
Just hit 50 nights with Marriott and been offered to pick an award gift. Which gift would be the best option? I usually book Airbnbs for personal lodging given costs/friends don’t travel like I do...

Does anyone have any experience starting over in a new city? I recently relocated down to the St. Petersburg Florida area to be closer to family. I am working for an investment management company out of boston but having difficulty feeling engaged while working. I have been with the same team in my company for four years in mutual fund operations. Having trouble getting responses to job applications in my new area.
All, I’m trying to figure out if I’m being underpaid. I’ve been at my company for close to 11 years! I don’t like coming off as greedy. I manage all the internal recruiting (they currently have me filling 30-40 jobs by myself), I also do all the training for new employees and current employees, I manage all of our software and tools that the team uses, I also am I’m charge of quality to ensure the team is following our company’s processes, I also do IT support. I’m currently at $100k. Thoughts?

Whenever I'm in a salary negotiation discussion, the HR asks for my expected CTC.
I tell them a number and they are like - ohh.. that's way beyond our budget, I see that you got a hike a couple of months ago blah blah blah and tell me what they plan to offer - which generally is way below my expectation.
In the spur of the moment, I quickly reduce my expected CTC to be lesser than what I would happily accept. I regret doing that the very next minute. How can I negotiate better?

Does anyone know when your healthcare coverage runs out when leaving Accenture? How long do I have until I am no longer covered/need to be on COBRA or another plan? Can't find answer in HR docs :/
Just got promoted to SM. I worked my ass off for this and am very proud. At the same time, my daily life is exactly the same - my role won’t change and I can’t celebrate because of COVID. Also, I feel guilty because I know so many people who have been laid off during this time. Any advice on how to enjoy this accomplishment and feel the excitement during this time?

How do I roll myself off a project? I don't like the manager at all - and their loud, condescending behavior is affecting my anxiety!
If you’re certain you will be rolled off from a project because of poor performance, would it be better to preemptively ask to roll off ahead of the news coming?

Happy Saturday, y’all! I work for a boutique consulting firm that models itself after Big 4. Curious to know what first year analyst are doing as far as average number of assessments per month, how many projects, etc. Not looking to move because I love my company, and I feel like my WLB is great, but interested to know how we compare to the larger firms.
I get why some firms may freeze external hiring. But why might some freeze internal transfers too? From a company perspective the total costs are the same.
Exit Big 4 for this offer? Australia
Current: Manager, TC 130k Incl Super
Offer: IBM, TC 220k Incl super
I know it may seem like a no brainer, but Big 4 to IBM may impact CV?
