Need recs on gift for a good friend 33M works for United, so always traveling (and very light), not at all flashy very much into environment and sustainability. Hilton/Igh member.
Woke up to 30 fishbowl and cnn alerts about Delta's shitshow. Got worried and then realized I'm federal and not leaving DC. And then went back to sleep.
In all honesty, I understand people are leaving Big 4 right now because they have decent exit ops or better WLB ops, but what about people working at small/boutique firms making $100-105k as a SC/M? Is it worth it to join a Big 4 if you can potentially get a 20-30% pay increase, i.e. is the increase in salary worth the headache and travel?Deloitte Accenture PwC EY
We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
Classic IAH to ORD delays, able to make a prior flight due to it being delayed. Middle row back, but at least I save myself 3 hours of loitering. Little wins
H1B stanping question - I just got my h1b renewed, but i need to travel in december to Asia and likely the place im travelling to will not return my passport before i have to return to the US due to christmas and new years holidays. If i go to Toronto, Canada before this and try to get the stamp before asia trip can i work while im getting the stamping done? Or is that illegal? Im afraid of taking too much vacation time across both trips.
[Request] if anyones feeling generous and has expiring United Club passes, one of my good friends is going on her honeymoon Monday. I’ve already upgraded them to first class (domestic) but would like to get them lounge access before too. I’ve got one pass but would need another one for her partner. Anyone have an extra they could spare?
applied for passport renewal at SFO consulate. VFS guys said you filled in wrong and we are sending the application back, and to refile again correctly. Got email saying it has been dispatched. However, I haven’t received the passport back till now. It’s been 10 days. I have tried following up through multiple channels. No response till now. I need to travel to india next week. any suggestions on how I can get it resolved? Their customer care phone line is charging 2.5$/min and are of no help!
How much would it cost for a cab to take you from SFO to Japantown? Flight will get in around rush hour, if that matters.
Delta 🐠: if you have a first class ticket, can you bring a guest you are traveling with into the Delta Lounge? Travel companion doesn’t have a first class ticket but has platinum status. Thanks!
Long time United flyer. Moving down to Raleigh. American or Delta? I like to use my miles for international trips. Also any challengers I can do, or thoughts on getting status fast?
Just met Bill Gates at the Marriott lounge....
Terminal A LGA is a shit show.. Not one flight has taken off since 3, 2 flights have returned to the gate & deplaned & it's every hour shuttle flights. I think we have hit capacity in this terminal 🙄
Delta should update their flight statuses from "on time" so we don't show up at the airport to find out were delayed hours. Consultants need sleep, we're people too
Does anyone actually LIKE united airlines?! 6 hour cross country flight and only economy plus gets served a meal? BISH, I don't even want your crappy "chicken or pasta" I just want the right to say no

Do connecting flights count toward MQS on delta?

Thoughts on Accenture? How do they compare to EY and Deloitte? Have offers from all 3 but not sure which one to choose. Would ideally like to get my MBA in a few years and get into MBB. Is there a better/more prestigious choice between the 3? TIA
For people traveling out of state - does your firm reimburse you for other state’s tax return? I need to fill tax return for five different states in 2017
My lawyers filed my h1b extension and amendment together even after advising not to by the v and I advisor. I’m getting freaked out. Any suggestions ?
Most of our engagements, if not all, are targeted towards operations, digital, tech, human capital that in most cases reduces the bottom line or increases top line for the clients. The engagement sponsor is happy and goes up the ladder and gives us an even bigger pie next time. Have we truly done engagements that were for the greater good of the world, climate, water, health, society, infra, education? Would love to hear some examples.
MBA or law school?
What's the internal job transfer protocol for PwC? Do I really have to contact my RL first before applying anywhere? I'd like to stay in the same office and don't really care about getting a higher salary. Just want to stay at PwC in a tax related role (which is what I'm in now, just more niche).
I wanted to know in reality how much does a partner lets say advisory makes on an average other than fixed salary?
Should I choose Deloitte Consulting Finance Transformation or Deloitte Consulting M&A Finance given they are similar comp and leveling? Would also have same cross sector opportunities.
MAGA friends, why does every conversation with you about COVID and the US Covid response include a claim that it’s China’s fault? Let’s say I grant your premise. How does COVID being China’s fault make the Trump response seemingly better? There are a number of things the president has to respond to that he did not directly cause - are you suggesting we don’t want someone capable of responding to events they did not have a hand in crafting?
Analyst has been unresponsive for past 2 weeks, VP and I (Associate) confirm that it’s to both of us. Perhaps analyst found a new job or whatever but shouldn’t leave us in the dark. At what point do we raise this with the Staffer? I don’t want to feel like a snitch, but VP hasn’t addressed with staffer either so not sure if I should raise? Been working as the analyst on existing staffing in the meanwhile cuz work still needs to get done.
Has anyone in this group spent time at SAP, left to work for a big4 SAP practice or similar then boomeranged back to SAP? If so what was the experience like/when you came back to SAP was it for a significant pay/position increase?
The waiting after you interview is the absolute worst. It's hard to judge how well you did. I doubt they make calls past 5pm on a Friday, right?
Does anyone have experience with exiting to brand management after 1-2 years in consulting? Is it feasible? Or do you need an MBA? Which companies?
