Channel Islands LAX -> SFO
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds

Anyone have thoughts on Hudson Advisors/Lone Star Funds if you’re in the dfw area? Know anything about working there? Don’t know much about them, if anything at all
Thinking of switching from delta to American, am I crazy? I fly from LGA as my home airport. But like the American network and find flights are consistently cheaper when I’m searching for personal travel. I normally get silver/gold status depending on the year. Is my American experience going to be good?
Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
Can I get into a Delta Skyclub lounge if I have access (through Delta diamond status) but am flying with a different airline on that day? Or would I only be able to get in with a delta ticket?
Best way to get to San Diego from LAX? Are there any shuttles / shared ride options at all?
Hey ATL fish! Anyone involved with any cool volunteer orgs? I’m looking for one to join so if you know of any good ones please comment below! Thanks!
With hotels and airlines struggling, do people think credit card travel perks/bonus points/reward systems will change post pandemic? Additionally, does anyone have and is satisfied with the amex hilton aspire card? Thinking of adding this to the wallet once travel opens up.
30F, thinking about separating from my marriage and looking at cities I could move to. Currently working in ATL and I’d need to come back at least once a month(prefer driving) since I’d still be working/based here. Ideas on affordable yet fun cities? I make 120k right now & I’d prob take the dog with me. TIA! 💚💜
Being asked by United to switch to a different flight for a travel voucher or miles. They want me to bid for one of the options. I can take the flight 5hrs later. How much should I bid? IAD to DTW
United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
SM here - if my work visa is not renewed, would I be eligible for severance? Current non compete has 3 months of severance included
How is the work culture at Unqork? Currently interviewing there for 15% pay raise. Most of it in RSUs though. Wondering if its worth the switch 🤔
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
People keep asking if I'm up for promotion and I've only been here a year (so I am not). Flattered I guess?
Can can anyone share interview experience and avg compensation at Dell Technologies? Level I8/I9, process automation and engineering role. 7 YoE.
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

What’s generally standard among FAANG companies for offer acceptance once one is extended? If anyone has experience with this, is it one week or is it more flexible? I am trying to schedule final onsite with two companies and hoping I can get timing to line up (in the event I am fortunate enough to have offers).
Alright I will admit as a Bitcoin Maxi, I was so consumed in that world that I haven’t explored other areas of crypto and may be wrong. I also didn’t buy any other coins so I missed out on Solana. I still think Bitcoin is the best but realize that I need to keep an open mind Just a lesson on not being sclerotic (I had to look this word up too)
Big 4 : Can you work remote from Europe (Belgium,France, England...) for a couple months and use your domestic location charge code ( US ) ? Please share experience ...
Want to leave the Big 4 because I am not particularly enjoying the service line I am in. Have been offered another role at a smaller global consultancy, but less prestige than the B4. Seems like I will get varied experience there but scared to leave the security and comfort the B4 offer. Any advice fish?!
Is 120k an acceptable salary for Dallas, Texas? I’m taking a pay cut to move there from San Francisco
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
Just promoted to M1 in Michigan. Base salary is now $88,300 (+4% bonus of $3k for total of $91,300). Wondering how this compares to others out there, and if I should be happy or disappointed, lol.
