I booked flights using Chase portal - The flights are cheaper now do they price match? First time using the service just wanted to use all my reward points. ￼￼￼
I fly a lot. What’s a good credit card for that?
Just another Canadian with a dream of transferring to a U.S. office. I know it varies by agency, but how difficult is the process (visa’s etc)?

Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
CSR card holders: are the 1.5x travel redemptions actually good options for travel? Considering it but I can go with regional bank cc and elect 3x pts on dining as well

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!
Could some of the moms share their favorite Christmas traditions and activities? Looking for some positivity this holiday and would love to learn about special things that you do with your families.
Any recommendations on consulting firms that work with lower middle market pe firms? Mbb, big 4 rates are too expensive so most likely looking for boutiques
Hi ladies, looking for advice on pivoting my career. Currently primary engineer for a system that supports 25k users across 200+ offices. I'm bored with IT. I'm a Jill of many trades, networking, wireless, voice, etc. I'm currently working on learning various netops tools. I like figuring out how to put pieces together but it's not much of a challenge anymore. I'm working on putting together a 5 year plan to move to 100 percent remote because my husband wants to retire and move. Advice?
Anyone have any book recommendations? Ideally ones that have helped you throughout your career
Has anyone had a live jury trial since covid? We could potentially have one in the next 30-45 days. I have team members who very strongly do not want to travel to urban areas and potentially be exposed for a variety of very legitimate reasons (personal and family health issues). I’m not willing to make anyone do it. Has anyone dealt with this?
Just had a look at some start-ups that are hiring and a lot of them offer unlimited vacation days... think this is a good practice?
In Australia. Boarded a domestic flight from Melbourne to Sydney on JetStar. They board their planes with two entrance points. Rows 1-16 enter through the front, rows 17-32 through the back of plane.
There is a huge push for our district to install audio and visual cameras to the classrooms. What do you all think?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?

Interviewing for a role at BP, what are they like as a firm to work at? It’d be the commercial/strategy side of the business rather than production. I understand they went thru a major re-org to be relevant for the future energy industry. How’s that going?
Anyone have any insight into what it’s like working at Stripe (WLB, culture, growth opportunities, etc.)?
What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance?
