Gold doesn’t mean squat in a non-hub for upgrades , let alone a major medallion base like NYC. Mileage run FTW.

From experience- the drop from plat to gold hurts. Runnnnnn.

Run if you're going to be flying the same/more next year.

Always go for the higher status and do better the next year.

Can someone explain to me what run means? New to medallion status

Taking a flight (usually round trip) just for enough miles or $$$ to make it to your desired status. I.e. round trip from nyc to O’Hare and don’t leave the airport

I recently received an offer from KPMG Global Services for 27 LPA. I have got another one from DXC for 31 LPA(including VP). As I'm more inclined towards KPMG I reached to KPMG HR asking to revise the offer letter. However, I was informed by the KPMG HR that both the offers are almost same as KPMG does not mention VP in the offer letter. Is that correct? If yes, what's the percentage that is normally paid out?

Today I have joined KPMG global services and I was shocked to hear one of their policy about vehicle parking. Employees below Manager level are not given any parking space for neither two-wheelers nor four Wheeler across all the offices in India. They said if you are commuting by your vehicle you have to figure it out on your own about the parking. I mean what kind of lunatics make these policies. Do they think all the people below Manager level can not own a vehicle. Is it justifiable?
