I am an immigrant that’s working in Canada for an American company. There are always lots of fun conferences and work trips that I’m eligible for and invited to in the US.

In-room internet not working at all (cable & wifi). Told the front desk first night and the morning after, 2nd night and still nothing. Should I ask to get points for this?
I need some unbiased perspective: four of us teach the same class and, as required, give common assessments. We discuss how many points assignments are worth, how much we curve each test, etc though we vary a bit here and there on all of these things. The problem is that one of us grades everything DRAMATICALLY easier. Their average on a 50 point assignment might be as much as 20 points higher than the other teachers. What do I tell parents who complain??
"How many points?" I'm new to all this. Beyond all the humor is this actually commonly done ? What's the process and way to go. Real examples please:)

Anyone have insight into revenue accounting? I’m interviewing for a sr revenue accountant position and wondering if it’ll be too pigeonholed. I also have zero background in this type of accounting so it would be completely new to me, but the hiring manager didn’t seem to mind that I don’t have any experience in this area. I’m fed up with the hours and lack of support in public and want to leave before next busy season for context.
