No. Considering they work a 40 hour week and are spread across hundreds of other members, it’s much easier to call customer service directly

Adding husband’s name to personal reservations, tracking down folios for hotels that don’t send to expense, booking rooms that aren’t the basic ones on points. Not as much as I’d like but have a so so ambassador

Finding properties that are willing to give me double points to stay with them and negotiating not my behalf (only works in major cities with multiple Marriott properties).

My ambassador def doesn’t do that

No

Yeah managing personal reservations more than a few weeks out, asking for upgrades when I’m doing leisure travel. My assistant is much more competent so I don’t have much cause

Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?

Should I decline to pursue the opportunity just so I have a longer track record at my current firm? This will be my 4th if I move.

Anyone have slow months where you burn through a lot of your allotted pro bono/professional development hours to keep hitting minimum daily hours? The past few weeks have been like this for me.

I’ve been asking partners if I can assist in any projects so I can fill my plate, but I’ve only gotten small (4-6 hour) tasks handed my way.
