Does IHG do a status match with either bonvoy, Hyatt or Hilton? Any contact or link I can request on
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?

Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.

I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)
I am so discouraged. Left consulting as a high performer and well respected by my colleagues and clients to an industry role 2 months ago and feel it’s not clicking. I feel so dumb all the time, I feel like my hiring manager regrets they hired me (even though she is wonderful and supportive) and I feel like the people I interact with think I’m an idiot. It’s a 180 degree turn from just two months ago. Has anyone else gone through similar? Feeling really embarrassed. Maybe I made a mistake.

Any current/Ex IBM please guide me to Opt In/Out of the IBM's Medical Insurance. To start of there is a co share of premium for a base sum insured of 3L which comes around 1790/- Then skipping the benefits for a second if I jump on to the claim part there is a Copay of 10-90. Employee will have to bear 10% of the claim and insurer will bear the other 90%. For dependents 20-80 Copay. Are the benefits are good enough to consider copay and subscribe ? Please Suggest.
my coach is very unresponsive and beyond distant. He just keeps saying that things are tough and doesn’t do anything to help. I work 60-90 hours for the last month and a half and there isn’t an end in sight. Recruiters have been contacting me in regards to positions in industry and I’m half tempted to start interviewing. I’m an S3 up for promotion next summer but I’m not sure even if the promotion will be worth it. Is it worth it to stay till the manager or is it time to jump ship.
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

If I can’t earn airline or hotel status, might as well get top tier status with Chick-Fil-A. Does this mean I’ve made it? And don’t judge the points—I just used a bunch of them. Lol
