So American Airlines is totally on my shit list. Checking in with a regular Tumi Alpha 2 and they told me that it somehow is too big! Mind you, it's been traveling 3-5 times a week with me...
If TCS Hyderabad offices are opening to work from office and I am assigned with Adibatla (of Hyderabad) location which is 30 away (4 hours travel everyday) from my own property, what are the options I will have to undo it..?

Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.
I just had dinner with some old friends and they are about to retire early. Part of their plan is to downsize their home, get a small condo and travel for 9-10 months a year. Does this seem crazy? I just can’t imagine it. I guess they figured the cost would be about the same but wouldn’t you miss the relationships. Wouldn’t your kids feel lost without having a sense of home? Anyone thought about this?

Cracks me up watching infrequent travelers in first class. 6:30 am flight and the bar is open!
Love when Bluetooth fails on the plane and Lil Pump / Kanye blasts on full volume. Good morning Delta Shuttle!
Best hotel gym in Atlanta?
For people that like to travel in style: have any of you figured out how to keep your nice suitcases from becoming destroyed at the airport?
I had about 6k on hold cause I had a few hotel@receipts that were pending. I check portal today and everything was cleared by ey audit without me responding to them . Slightly surprised. This
I just want someone who has an epic pass and can travel as much as I can...is that too much to ask?
My next shark tank pitch will be about a collapsible wall I can attach to my flight seat armrest to separate me from my neighbor
Fuck delta for not putting precheck on my ticket and RDU for not accepting my global entry card as proof
I have 30k United miles expiring in September. What’s the easiest and cheapest way to extend their validity?
Can you expense United club access?
I have a gambling addiction. As soon as I get paid I blow it all. I have $17,500 in credit card debt and $30,000 in student loans. I won't spend it if I can't touch it, but I need to pay bills. (Cnt)
Is EY gds allowing permanent wfh option? Has anyone heard from respective team lead of such news
Has anyone here worked with a team of remote engineers in Eastern Europe? Anything I should be aware of in terms of cultural differences or behavioral norms? I’m US-based
Have to book 3 personal trips coming up all on delta. Is it worth opening a delta skymiles card or should I just use my chase sapphire rewards?
Dear men: stop asking your female peers to schedule meetings for you. It’s a bad look. Just sayin’.
I applied for a passport at the end of Sept and paid with a check. My company was supposed to reimburse me but I don’t have a receipt for it bc I never got one (probably bc I used a check). I tried to submit with a picture of the transaction in my account which was rejected. Is there a way to get this receipt from USPS even if it’s already been a few weeks?
I'm just really sick of congratulating people on obviously accidental pregnancies. I know, I know, I'm evil. But whatever. I just feel that babies are best used as a compliment to a nice hollandaise.
Did you wait for your background check to be completed before giving your notice? What about the final step of contacting the current employer? I have been emailing the team regularly to find out the status so I can give my notice and take some time off
How soon is too soon to leave a firm after starting, if you don't have a sign on bonus? Any bad blood expected? Would it have been better to just renege?
Hired as a Director into consulting but the client wants me to become "Chief of Staff" to his functional area. Should I consider that a demotion or promotion? Didn't really sign up for staff augmentation. Large part of my team is inept and the program is failing in areas. (Paper Lion title I never really had a chance to direct anyone.)
Who’s working on a car account and watching their agency crumble? Countless number of layoffs this year, budget cuts and tiny raises. 😣
My husband is from Brazil and we are expecting our first child in April. My mother in law is great, but she wants to come stay with us before the baby is born and right after. I am torn between appreciating the help and wondering if I will want this time to be alone to bond with my baby and husband. Does anyone have experience with having their MIL coming during this period?
With all this extra, often unnecessary, communication while my company works remote, I’ve been having an awful time getting actual work done. So I’ve started to block off major chunks of my day every morning and put up an autorespond message saying I’m focusing on a deliverable, but will be available to respond at x time and if it’s an emergency to text. HOLY SHIT. What a game changer. I can actually get work done guilt free. I realize not everyone is able to do this, but if you can, do it.
Looking for advice, opinions. profile: New SM at PwC Canada, specialize in strategy, digital operations, analytics, performance management and finance. Strong performer - have only gotten ratings of 2s and 1s.

IBM has offer me 2 positions to choose from - continued…
When I was in industry, I started presenting to SVPs as an intern. Now my manager says I’m too junior to present to an SM on the client team (I’m a level 10). This is a little upsetting
I really don’t understand the hate against Diversity and Inclusion efforts. I grew up hearing my parents worry about being passed over for promotions and denied opportunities, due to race. It’s a real concern for black professionals.
Looked at a product management role on LinkedIn, and it had 900 applications within 8 hours of being posted. Is this level of competition normal for the job market? Any advice on how to stand out?
