What’s your status level on United?

Depending on how important it is to you, you can always look at the seat map and try to take a guess if you’re going to get the comp upgrade. My guess would be you’ll get it on Wednesday but not so sure about Sunday

Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.
