Al Maha Dubai and St Regis Maldives are my top 2.

I’d prob go with one of the Maldives properties. W or St Regis depending on the vibe you go for. 5th night is free when redeeming points, so you might as well go for five nights!

Le Meridian Maldives is a cat 5 and a lot cheaper at 35k a night for an overwater bungalow 🙃

💳Credit card help💳 Starting a new job in two weeks. The new company does not give a corporate card, so I get to pick my own.

Work related expenses will be minimal, but Im moving/furnishing an apartment so personal spend will be decent. TIA!

How do you think a swap from MBB to big4 strategy would be viewed? Currently in a flagship office of an MBB and there is basically no strategy.

Contrast that to what I hear about big 4 strategy: lower hours and more strategy exposure as the crappy projects go to the other MC departments

Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next

Would it be crazy to negotiate salary after I’ve already signed the offer? I just resigned and my current agency countered with crazy $$$ and a better title. I still want to make this move but the $$$ from the new spot isn’t that great. I accepted bc of the people / name. I know it shouldn’t be all about the money, but this is really a life-changing amount. I wish I hadn’t signed until after I got the counter from my current employer… live and learn I guess. 🥴
