How are you dealing with WFH and small children? I either need to cut my workload or completely disregard my children. I don’t want to be put in the mummy track. This virus is like the mummy trap.
Best way to find award flight options on Delta/United/AA, from US to Europe? Somewhat flexible in dates and locations - just want to see what low-cost options there are in June/July
People that put bookbags and laptop bags in the overhead space knowing it’s a full flight. Definitely was that asshole requesting people to move their stuff and holding up the boarding 🙄
Happy fly day. Anyone got a delta drink coupon to help a friend out. It was a rough week
Has anyone recently traveled from India to US via Emirates or Qatar? These are good options for my parents to visit from India but not sure if there are any restrictions to keep in mind. I heard Air India and United have no restrictions although not very convenient for me. Thank you
Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
Seattle Delta sky club FTW.
Question about expensive mileage while traveling. If you are in a city (greater than 100 miles from home office), do you still subtract out your normal office commute mileage on a daily basis?
All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...
Nothing reminds me why I only fly Delta like flying American. A serious and heartfelt apology to those of you who endure this regularly...
Anyone already work out an optimal combo for a couple that each consults on earning? We aren’t super advanced so basic choice is either both go Marriott, or split and one go Hyatt and Hilton
Thinking of dropping my United Club card. Use it primarily for lounge access, but I also have a Corp Amex Platinum card which gets me into Centurion and partner lounges. Contd...
Are dual monitors worth it? Currently have one monitor and my laptop on a stand, wondering if having a second monitor and not using laptop screen would be worth $300 more
Is it still a bad time to move to NYC? Would be WFH but wanting to get it over with and get out of parent’s house. Would be coming from FL so assuming it’ll be quite a shock moving there
Have a male friend who had been extremely helpful when my parents were sick (neuro related). He’s a recent neurosurgeon, we’re friends since primary school but we havent spoken for a decade since we lived in different coast. In the last 6 months we speak a lot due to his expertise in this health field and generosity to follow up regarding my parents health. What can I send him to thank for his help all this time? Any nice gestures. Fyi platonic only, he’s married

How is commercial hiring in DC/Arlington for Deloitte, for either client-facing or internal roles? I've been applying to the tons of open spots for a while, but am not having any luck.
That feeling when you get an exit row seat and find out your neighboring seat is empty 🎉🍻

European citizen looking to come back and work in advertising ind. I already have all the requirements for the O1 visa. Someone out there that wants to give me the chance that I’m waiting for? DM me!
Hi folks I have 5.1 years of experience in Sap Sd. I Have offer from LTI, Atos and Yash technologies. Package is 15.5lacs INR in all. Please suggest, which one to join.
So needing to work 45 hours in advisory going forward, "because professionals already work that much" is a really shitty explication - probably won't get a bump in comp either.
Currently an SC at EY up for promotion to Manager (no guarantee this will occur) and have an offer from Deloitte for SC for a $15k base increase. Would you take the offer or wait for promo decision?
What's a very memorable or engaging networking event you attended? What made it so great (could be something from pre covid times too or from the present new norm if virtual)!
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
Taking the Beginner AWS Cloud Practitioner certification exam this weekend. Went through the standard course offered by AWS, I think I have a good understanding. Is there anything else I need to prepare? Is this exam anything crazy?
Say there are two candidates, Candidate A has a 6/10 resume and candidate B has a 9/10 resume. If Candidate A has a referral at MBB, are they more likely to get an interview than candidate B? Or will they be about the same?
Gave up my business class seat for a kid who was looking at me, as she boarded, and the drink I was offered, her mom said - she always thought it was cool why people got bigger seats to sit. She is 3!
Going to be in Madrid for the next 4 days on vacation. Any recommendations?? Used points so will be staying at the Westin Palace Madrid.
For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification. After being laid off in May, I decided to pursue my coaching business full time. My question is, for those who have sought out coaching, which area of your life did you focus on first and why?
