I am still mad that Accenture would not put me up in a hotel for my internship, but didn’t tell me where the client was, so made me find a sublet in the middle of New Jersey that meant a 45 min commute - you are some cheap motherfuckers

Limitation for us is cost, not brand.

Depending on price yes.

I don’t think anyone cares except for the cost. Just don’t go around bragging to everyone that you’re at the Ritz that night

For my projects it has been more about the optics than the price. Doing a transformation project at a client who laid people off and staying at the Ritz = third rail

Did you mean Four Points? Because that is one five star hotel!

Yes as long as it’s part of the approved list for a city. Typically there are some very nice hotels on the list

@a5 that can't be real. I would quit. We travel for a living and should be able to do so with reasonable accommodations. Unless I'm in East Bumblef**k then it's some rando holiday inn or something

We us use Amex-based systems for travel management, it's more about booking cost than it is quality.

Yeah we are pretty cheap

BCG 1, upholding the stereotype

We stay at four seasons for my client...

Accenture put me up in a church once in Manhattan. Had to stick to $100/night budget.

Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?

I’m curious what the opinions are on the process they have seen or used to get promoted. I’ve never had it happen in my career this way but in my mind, your work speaks for itself, you advocate for yourself, ask for a promotion when it’s not been offered. Then you get promoted after you make your case if you do qualify. The way I’ve seen it (& a reason I’m leaving my current company) is where they only promote people when they’ve threatened to leave or received a different offer. Thoughts?
