Anyone (or knows someone) that lives in Dallas and flies with United or Delta? Is it somewhat convenient or not at all? I dislike AA and am thinking of switching
My first year of travelling and I’m thinking of getting small holiday gifts for the hotel/lounge staff that help me each week. Would that be weird?
Systemwide upgrades on AA: They have to be on flights that say "American Airlines" when you buy them/can't be used for a partner like British Airways, right? Looking at a Europe trip, want to clarify
Curious to get thoughts of seasoned travellers. My 6.15pm direct JFK-SFO flight is delayed until 1am due to weather complications. Option to take a 12.10am to Seattle then 7am to SFO (arriving 10am).

Which American express credit card is the best to have in Canada? I just got approved for the Aeroplan reserve card, and not sure to go with this or flexible rewards or cash back!
Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....

Anyone heard or experienced traveling to and from India from the US on Qatar Airways? Have been seeing online that certain people (such as B1/B2 visa holders) weren’t allowed to board the flight from India. FYI I’ve a stamped H1B visa. Any inputs are appreciated.

Would you lateral from B4 into McKinsey as EM or take an industry offer that is $50k more in TC (thank MCK offer) and better wlb? The biggest push against taking the industry offer is that I’m not sure that i am super passionate about the industry or want to commit to that industry for the longer term. I am thinking I would be able to get similar exit opps assuming I do not make it to AP. What would you do if you were in my situation? It’s a good place to be, but I am losing sleep over this. TIA
VP fish - what do you see as a realistic exit from IBD? I'm sure at least some of you are not interested in pursuing MD and chasing annual fee targets? Also, how is your potential exit comp vs IBD?

Can someone help with the base salary range for a 6+ years experienced finance professional with FRM and CFA certifications in Big 6 firms in Advisory practice? Also, what should be the expectations for joining bonus during the current times?
Going into Friday before comp release and no leaks yet (or publicly known). Unfortunately sounds like Deloitte IT may not screw up this year.. :(
Anyone had a firm do a background check done using RAI? It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard anything. I’m surprised it’s taking this long because there’s nothing in my background that would raise any issues.
I'll never be a managing director. Probably will never reach more than 500k/yr salary. I'm content about it. What stark realizations about your career have you arrived at?
2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?
I shop at BR and my client counterpart Shops at BR clearly. Some days we will have on the same shirt.....awkward.
Need to recertify my AWS-SAA cert. any recommendations on best resources given the new test format (SAA-CO2)?
Is there a point to having a PCP if you have PPO health insurance? Surely you can just go directly to the doctor/specialist you want? What am I missing here?

Tax peeps: odd and morbid question but if you die young/before retirement age, what happens to your retirement accounts (401k, IRA, HSA, etc)? Do your beneficiaries get taxed like it is an early withdrawal? Or is it not taxed on withdrawal but rather as regular income for beneficiaries?
