Can you cash in on the lodging per diem and use air bnb instead of booking the preferred rate hotels for client travel? I think I'd rather have the cash than the hotel points.
"URGENT: Status Match" - my subject line to make sure Virgin status matched me before my United status expired. Somehow it worked and they matched me within 24 hours. #justintime
Anyone successfully transferred their points and status from Marriott to Hilton or Hyatt?
Hope everyone is staying warm! I would recommend using the “hotel tonight” app if your looking for a room with electricity, heat, and wifi. For a list of open restaurants and food locations follow the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/e/2PACX-1vT4-sN7nwbdwkbmzwJEuYcPq-Ri0Hv4Hfa2bEqD0If4uJl_jTb0yftT8XTWFNgBoLg0za1QtN7jNpgU/pubhtml
No room service at Marriott properties in NYC. Then they expect you to go down to the lobby to get your delivery because of security, meanwhile anyone in plain clothes can go upstairs. Wtf Marriott?
Just paid off my credit card debt that totaled a whopping 5-digits worth! ($XX,XXX) Took 7 months of sacrifice and making better life choices. I never wanna be in debt ever again!
AA Flight cancelled (personal travel) due to weather and rebooked for tomorrow. I can get to another airport nearby where there’s a Delta flight that’s direct tonight - best way to approach? Used CSR
My flight from DCA-> TPA literally just had to abort takeoff to let a 12 year old boy deplane. Ready for a damn drink!
Strategy I’ve been running courtesy of BC: long put on Tesla 5/15, long call weeklies at lows to delta hedge, sell at high and simultaneously avg down long puts cuz it’s about to blow anytime
Once the new year starts can we contact our respective hotel/car rental/airline companies to ensure a fast track to retain our statuses
Business traveler here. I stay at Marriott/SPG hotels. I can’t bill flights so I charge hotels, taxis and food each week. Which is better Amex SPG or Chase Sapphire Preferred for building points?
For the Delta fast track that's going on - does it register a round trip flight as two one-ways? It phrases everything in terms of one-ways, but I'm going to be booking round trip. Thank you!
DELTA PLUS, are you KIDDING ME i am so tired DAMNNIT
How does everyone bill for travel? Example - flying out Monday for a depo on Tues Wed, flying back Thursday. My gut has always been to bill for working hours time on the flying days and hearing days, but is that what everyone does? Can I bill 8 hours (or more) for a full travel day even if I’m not working every minute (but I’m also not not-working)? Nobody at my firm talks about this and at this point I’m too embarrassed to ask.
Hi Ladies- any of you have a peloton bike? Was it worth it? How often do you use it considering that’s you travel often during a non-Covid time?
What’s up with the new boarding pass scanners For Delta flights in ATL? They are so extra or is it just me

If I took a part time MBA program, can I still campus recruit for a summer role at MBB, Big 4, FAANG, etc?
Interviewed with Citi Bank twice, was told to expect a response in the next week or so. It’s been almost two weeks since the last interview, is it reasonable to follow up? Don’t want to come off as demanding or entitled, since I know COVID has everything moving a bit slower. At the same time itching to get out of my current position ASAP
What is everyone's company standard salary increase for promotion? Found out today mine is 12% and anything higher must be approved by a VP.
Actively looking for an HR generalist role! Does anyone know any roles opening up soon in your companies? My background: have a BBA in HRM, MSHRM, and SHRM-CP certification. One year and a couple of months in EY’s People Advisory practice, and some HR internship experiences. I’ve done work with the talent team on my projects in the past. I’m looking to go internal ASAP so let me know if you have advice or know of any roles opening in your company 🙂
Been at Facebook for a month in a BizOps role. However, I just got a (very delayed) offer to be a Marvel product manager at Disney Streaming. Love facebook but my end goal is product management and it looks near impossible to switch internally since I’m in one of their HQ offices and most of the roles are sales. Should I switch? Comp is 30k less at DSS and not as good benefits, I’d burn a bridge, and I’m happy at FB but scared of losing a good opp
Has anyone here had any interaction with Porsche Consulting? Maybe a through competitive bid, via client hearsay, or recruitment? Any impressions?
Whats your go to WFH lunch?
Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
McKinsey & Company: Implementation Associate (4 YOE). What would you expect for salary and bonus potential?
Anyone from big4 has experience in having its H1b transfer filed within a week after accepting the offer?
Asking for personal finance help. I’m contributing about $7.5k/year to my 401k based on my budget/spending. About to get lump sum of cash (sold car, tax returns, stimulus). Was thinking of just putting a little aside in cash for rainy day and invest the rest in brokerage acct., but would it make more sense to max out my 401k for tax purposes and use the lump sum as spending $ until it runs out? Currently 27 yr old, 73k salary in NYC, no debt, $10k in EM fund, maxed out Roth IRA for 2021. TIA
