Cracks me up watching infrequent travelers in first class. 6:30 am flight and the bar is open!
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?
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
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?
Recently laid off from Sr. Consultant role in energy in Houston. 4 years exp in supply chain/procurement and 2 in consulting (mainly tech PM work aka scrum). Have my MBA and PSM 1 cert.

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?
Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.

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)
And there it is....the email from United offering me 1K status for the low cost of $1500. Am I crazy for considering it? I’m platinum now.
For those traveling through CLT Thursday night, what are your plans? Rebook to earlier flight or just hope Florence doesn’t impact your regular flight?

Thoughts on Business Development, strategic partnership roles at Salesforce? Is this a good exit from strategy arm at a B4? How is comp and WLB?

Hi Folks, Do you guys know, if Accenture is going to discontinue ATCI skill bonus in near future? TIA
What does it mean when you have an interview at an agency but they aren’t sure which account it’s for yet / my second round interview is a “general chat”? Am I getting strung along?
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
Thoughts on maven clinic? I have the final set of interviews happening soon. I know that it has achieved unicorn status, what does it mean for company stability and also future prospects for me?
Best hotel gym in Atlanta?
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
Does ATK hire without an MBA?
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
MBB helps their employees find an exit opp via alumni connections and an internal job search. Why doesn’t Big 4/ACN/IBM do that? It’s looked down upon to say you are interested in leaving.
Going to NY for my bday end of this month. Looking to book between Renaissance NY Chelsea hotel and Moxy NY Chelsea. Anybody stayed at those and have some suggestions? Also, what is the “Destination Amenity Fee” Renaissance charges? What all does it include? Tried looking up on their website but not much info.
Is working at FAANG in a product role the equivalent of MBB in consulting? Meaning as in once you leave, you can jump levels at another company?
Role I applied requires me to relocate to Austin , offer will come soon. I said yes to moving to Austin . But I am located in Florida and don’t want to move. Is there any process that I need to follow to ask for remote work from Florida itself . I don’t want to ask HM/recruiter to cause any impact to my offer .
Hey everyone. Recently interviewed at a registered investment advisor, 10 person shop. What’s everyone’s views on hand written thank you notes vs emails post first round interview? Both people I met with gave me their business cards without me asking which I think is a good sign. Usually like doing emails vs hand written notes because you can get a response or further conversation vs possibly not hearing anything from a hand written note.
Dear men: stop asking your female peers to schedule meetings for you. It’s a bad look. Just sayin’.
I recently Accenture just been few months, initially my training started in Java domain and then suddenly they put me in a development project and the technology is PHP. The KT session was not upto the mark and not getting good resources to study , also having an offer from KPMG KGS for analyst in Risk Advisory service. Should I make a switch?
