What to read or watch before first flight lesson to maximize what I get from it? Got one as a gift. 1hr desk, 1hr cesna
Just wondering if this triple dip would work: Book Marriott hotel through United MileagePlus Shopping giving 1 mile per $, Marriott points for stay and 6 points per $ for using Bonvoy Brilliant card?
How do you expense room service for a meal? It seems like it would just increase the hotel bill in the expense buffer.
How long can you do the weekly travel before you need a break? I just hit 20 weeks including lots of Fridays at the client and weekend trips and wondering if it’s unreasonable to ask for a remote week
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...
It's 8 am EDT and I am already bored of the number of posts below talking about Marriott and SPG merger. HAPPY FRIDAY!
Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd
Recommendations for obgyn in the northern Virginia area( fairfax and around)? I’d love the name of specific doctors as opposed to just a practice name, please. I have United healthcare, if that helps.
Do you guys think that post pandemic consulting travel will return to how it was (Monday-Thursday)?
Woke up at 4:30 am for an early morning flight on American. Takes me an hour to get to the airport. When I am about 10mins away (in my Uber) I get a text that my flight is delayed until 10am cont...
Anyone have experience relocating from United States to UK or EU? Either through an office change at your firm or via another route? I’ve had the urge to move to Europe for quite some time and it hasn’t gone away. I’m hoping to gain some insight to determine if this is something worth exploring or if it’s nearly impossible.
I have the older United cc. If I wanted to get the explorer card to take advantage of bonus points could I just apply for it or would I need to cancel current then apply? TIA
I have $4,000 in my emergency fund and $1,100 left in total consumer debt (a credit card balance at a 10% interest rate). I’m tempted to pay it off right now, but in light of what’s going on in (cont)
I’m trying to book a rental car with National for a personal trip using EY discount. It doesn’t give me the option to elect it as a leisure trip in the app like Hertz does. Any insights on this?
How long do you think it’d take to “explore” Chicago? Have opportunity to work remote from US and would love to travel from city to city maybe every year or every 6 months and wondering if a year is enough time to get a good experience out of Chicago
Has anyone had luck getting anything from Marriott in lieu of suite night upgrades? I’ve legit had 20 requests declined this year due to unavailability. How many points?!
Got the Delta notification for weather issues in LGA tomorrow...who is adjusting their flights?
*Finishes engagement one week early with no more travel required before year end* "This is awesome!" *Looks at Marriott app* "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!"
My Kellogg interview is in a couple days but I haven’t received a zoom link yet. Should I contact them tomorrow?
Planning on working remote from Colorado for about a month. Any recommendations on places/towns? Specifically, looking for towns that offer weekly/monthly furnished apartment rentals (outside of airbnb/vrbo/etc.) in addition to the outdoor activities (hiking, biking, parks)
Accenture F&R practice or Deloitte S&A? How is the culture, salary different and career growth?
Under what circumstances are you willing to relocate for a job? Have family, kids and pets. Got an offer from a well-known company in industry, but requires relocation. The company pays the relocation. Got 20% raise, similar COL in the new city , but the work itself is not that exciting. The attractive part of this offer is the benefit and the name of the company.
Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/
Got rejected in technical round for networking profile. Did a lot of hard work to crack interview. But didn't make it. Feeling frustrated. Persons with least knowledge got the job a year before, now gained good experience by working on technologies say that you will be rejected if they refer me to their organization. So frustrated I am. Not getting a break doe a good profile. Blood job has sucked me up.
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
Chase UR is migrating systems, so they might not be able to find recent rewards bookings. Ask for a specialist if you have that issue - saved me a lot of time!
How many hours spent on casing and using which resources? For those who got offers at McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
I’ve put on about 20 lbs during covid lockdowns and haven’t lost a pound since. My SO loves me but (and I agree) has always been big about us keeping appearance and weight in check, first for our health but also for overall attraction. His take is if a disease somehow made me put on weight there’s not a comment he would make but in this case it’s really bad exercise and diet habits. I don’t disagree but I’ve never been so far from my target weight that I just don’t know where and how (cont)
For people here making less than 100K who max out their 401K / HSA, can I have a conversation with you about your taxes paid ? Is it significantly less or is your take home significantly less ? Trying to assess the financial impact to my take home if I max out my 401K. Ty!
What's the earliest in someone's tenure you've seen them fired from MBB and why? (Looking for validation that the feeling like I'm doing a sub-par job, but trying to be coachable, 7 months into my job doesn't equate to getting fired in the next 5-17 months...)
Manager 1. Transfer from audit into FDD (and have to do one more busy season in audit), or leave to a financial reporting job at a large public co for 40% raise?
What’s the typical salary range for in-house copywriters? Is it significantly less than agencies? Thanks in advance! 🙏🏼
Anyone worried about layoffs? I saw a post about Deloitte laying off 5000 employees ... I know EY saying no lay off this year but what about other firms?
@EY fishes: What are some EY benefits that I should definitely take advantage of? Joining the NYC office soon.
