For those of us that have to expense everything on the corporate AMEX, is it better to get a personal Platinum Amex over the Chase Sapphire?

Depends on how you are going to use the rewards that come with those cards. I used my Amex platinum benefits to the max in those glorious pre-covid travel days. My favorite perk was my weekly visit to the airport Centurion club before flying home - such a wonderful place of relaxation, tranquility, and a parade of interesting people with expensive luggage. Now I sit alone...

You can get a $150 annual fee discount on the personal Platinum through your corp card membership. At a $400 AF, I'd say the Amex Plat is better. You'd break even on the fee with just the Uber and Delta credits

Everything is harder for an Indian immigrant. It was a battle to get picked in the H1-B visa “lottery”. I haven’t seen my family in 3 years because I can’t find a visa stamping appointment at the US consulate in India. Flight tickets to go to India in the month of December is $5000. Millions are waiting to get a visa and the government, that should serve its people, is creating more roadblocks for its citizens. How is this not being spoken about?

Have you ever experienced a SM/M give negative feedback at because of something beyond your control, like you didn’t have bandwidth to support them 100% but supported hours as much as you could yet they held it against you. Or some anecdotal (non-performance) based review which your coach told you about? I don’t mean to sound paranoid but I do feel egos exist in our organization and during performance reviews exert “power”. Please offer views/stories if in support or contrary to this opinion.
