Just met someone while I'm in a travel city and we clicked, but this is my last week of project travel and we've only been out on 1 awesome date 😟
My H1B extension is currently in progress and have received an RFE. I am planning to travel outside the country next week and I can’t return till I have my visa stamped. But will leaving...cont....
For United, what is the exact calendar period for premier status qualification? I sit Jan 1 to Dec 31? I may be cutting it close this year to qualify based on 36 PQF and 13,500 PQP for 1K (and plus points) - hence checking on exact dates o have fly to make it.
Getting ready to do hard pull on credit report for mortgage application. My better half is in 700-719 range (lenders will take lower score between us). What do we think is the better option to increase her score—increase credit line at current credit card, apply for new credit card, or do nothing? Thanks in advance!
Moments when I feel, its time to quit. My flight was delayed yest. My 7m old was at ER due to viral infection. We came home at 2. Since morning working on deliverables from Dr’s office to home.
Fuck delta, don't tell me I have to check my bag when there is clearly still tons of overhead room. If only there was way to communicate in real time with someone on the plane...
What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year? I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4). Started with 1.9million ledger and grew to 2.7million with pipeline worked from past years that turned to wins. The pandemic hasn’t allowed much time or travel to refill the pipeline. Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.
Left my phone in the cab in the ATL airport less than 1 hour before the flight. Boarding pass was on phone. Was taking the international terminal shortcut so couldn't print my boarding pass...continue
Can I transfer my CSR points to someone else or can I transfer my csr points to their United / southwest accounts, etc. is there any fee associated with it?
Anyone had success negotiating extra points to have the team stay at a hotel for a long term client engagement (e.g., double points for the team)? Trying to negotiate with a Hyatt right now and would love any tips.
Is it worth flying with no status on Delta to save 3 hours of travel time or stick with AA who I already have status with?
You know it's Monday when almost the whole plane is on the upgrade request list 😳 on the bright side Delta started offers to take the 9a flight instead at $900 Amex GCs today!
Based in DC, United or American? DCA seems to lean American which is nice for proximity, but it’s smaller. Sub question: which lounge memberships is better? I have the option to expense one of them.
Any signs of MBB travel hours/week changing significantly post-pandemic? Alternatively, are there any particular projects at MBB with less work hours/week, say like a defense gig? I’m really just trying to not scare myself away from MBB, but WLB is very important to me. Currently at Big4 with a fairly nice WLB and I’d love to pursue a MBB opportunity post-MBA for potentially better business experience/exit ops (more Advise work vs implement/operate done at Big4)
Living in EU, looking to travel somewhere warm for Xmas/new years holiday. Where would you go ?
Are airlines doing food/beverage service right now? I have delta and American flights coming up. (FYI - More so curious about the alcohol part of the beverage service.) TIA

How do you think we should help and encourage non union workers even the ones not in education?
Q for my friend.. she’s newish to flipping her own houses and is a contractor. She bought an investment property and is going to do the work on the house.

Either way the money is coming out of her own business.. just wondering for tax purposes
So why is the Postal Service and it’s 600k + employees exempt from the vaccine mandate? So much for all federal workers must be vaccinated, guess Joe is proving he’s a “Union guy” after all.

Is the issue with personal expenses charging it to the card, charging the expense to the client or both?
Difference between female vs male leadership is based on gender bias. I'm labeled "aggressive, stubborn, and difficult to work with" by male peers, while they're praised as decisive and direct. WTF 😡
PwC friends - I think I waste the whole healthy subsidy - need some advice on how to track points log points whatever. I missed my Deloitte 500.
Gave notice to my current company a week or so ago but sticking around until 4th of July holiday.. Jesus is this a struggle.
What's going on with everyone regarding the vaccine mandate? How is it effecting companies and how does HR plan to deal with this disaster?!
Dear expense report auditors - screw you for asking for receipts for things under $25 (firm policy is you only need receipts for anything $25 and up).
Has anyone noticed that busy season is changing into a marathon, not a sprint? I’m working close to 60 billable hours/week year round, and 70+ Feb - April. Is this a bigger trend?
Just got an offer from CapTech as a senior business analyst. Would serve as a transition from an industry practice to general IT. Marginal improvement in benefits. Minimal travel. Pros and cons?
A friendly reminder to LGA folk — that stupid on-ramp adds 15-20m to your travel time. T minus 45 so here’s hoping the TSA haven’t messed up CLEAR and precheck.
