This horse has been beaten to death but suggestions on Amex Plat vs Brilliant for Marriott loyalists? I already have Gold that gives 4X on dining and supermarkets (my biggest expenses) and don’t wanna part with that. No I don’t want CSR, thank you.
Fly or no fly, Delta’s skymiles monthly summary email works like clockwork. Yes I miss you too Delta. Now stfu and let me live in peace.
Fiancé and I booked a flight on the same reservation, Delta split us up so we both had middle seats 3 rows apart. Gate agent refused to even try to switch us back I’m platinum, he’s silver. Points?
Any hotel suggestions for the hamptons/montauk? Do any of them have/accept corporate codes?
What are the implications if I work for a US company from another country? Currently hired and employed out of the US. I told my job I want to do a remote year but didn’t specify where I would be located. I’ve already purchased my flight and leave at the end of December. Also going to this other country for Grad school as it is cheaper than the US. Didn’t mention that to my employer either.
Why is Delta offering free messaging on flights? Hoping to upsell inflight internet? Differentiate itself in the market? Some more nefarious reason?
If you moved to the US when you were 18, and now you are 40 years old, with very minor accent, when you travel aboard, do you say that you come from India or USA?
United or Southwest for 2016? Flying out of Chicago, have silver on United and nothing on SW... #consultingpeasant
For those who got the booster, where’d you get it? All the pharmacies have a 1+ month wait and really wanted to try to get it before starting up travel again next weeks
Gave up my seat for a middle seat so a mom and daughter could sit together on a 4 hour flight.
Ladies who wear sheet masks on flights - when do you put them on? 4 hour flight coming up and no idea what the ideal timing is!
Unpopular opinion (perhaps): Jetblue has a better product offering than mainstream carriers, especially United.
Really struggling today. Consulting is so lonely. Random hookups are fun and plentiful but afterwards, I just get more lonely alone in my hotel room. How does everyone deal with constantly being alone
In my hotel and all I can hear is the people next door having sex... Can't sleep... Do I complain?
Volunteered for taking a later flight home for a $600 gift card. I was planning on working anyway tonight so atleast I'm getting paid for the overtime now.
You all inspired me (see post below about looking for a physical challenge that won’t kill me). I think I’ll try a triathlon/sprint triathlon. Any tips? I think (?) I can swim - I know I learned when I was a kid, but I haven’t actually swam in a few decades. I can definitely ride a bike and I can run. Not looking to win any medals, I’m just looking for a challenge that will keep me engaged.
My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate). She also doesn’t get why we have a cleaner and dog walker and seems to imply we’re wasting our money by outsourcing funds on things we can do. She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.
Thinking about joining tech. 🐠 What are the non-FAANG companies do you see the highest potential (thinking that joining FAANG today probably doesn’t provide that much upside)? From a preference standpoint, most interested in fin tech and health tech. But trying to solve for RSU potential above all
Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa? I'm supposed to start in mid-Jan and trying to gauge the timeline so I can put in notice with my current company and plan other stuff. Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!

Sales Managers: would you consider a candidate without a history of quota achievement? I’m interested in AE roles and believe I posses the skills to be successful in sales, but my experience to date has been in client-services, customer success, and pre-sales consulting delivering product demos.
MBA/JD with CIPP and CISSP certs. 15 yoe in security/privacy consulting across verticals. Looling to make a change and move up from my job of 5+ years. Any ideas on comp for senior manager roles? Big 4 or boutique? tia!!
We have had an extremely tough start to the year. I am second guessing my decision to continue teaching (year 20). What are some options for teachers that don’t involve the classroom or direct sale
Marriott just released its new combined points program. Live discussion in this thread..
Should I still try to negotiate salary after accepting a offer? It is from Accenture for a security analyst position. Since I’m basically a new grad I assumed negotiating salary wouldn’t be worth it. Until I talked to someone on the security team there and he told me I should at least be a senior analyst since I am coming in with a Masters. Should I try to negotiate to a senior role and the salary or leave it? It’s my only cybersecurity offer. Also looking for FAANG,big4or MBB referrals :)
