For those who ever took the metro during rush hours:

You can scan your smart card immediately after the person in front of you, not wait for the scanners to close. Def a pet peeve, had to vent.

I have also had instances where the scanners slammed on my crotch instead of staying open because I scanned the smart card immediately after the person ahead of me. Not a fun experience, So I'd rather wait for the scanners to close before I scan my smart card. Thank you very much.

Agree w BAH - sometimes the scan doesn't go through or there isn't enough money left and this will happen

I think this is a misdirected post. If we live and work in the area, we k ow how to ride metro. I think you're irritated with tourist and interns. It'll only get worse, too

Disagree, a lot of these people look like they’re going to work and I doubt many of the interns are here outside of the summer

How do you negotiate for a higher salary when you don’t have accurate data to support your ask?My role has evolved so much over last year. I am training new people on my team who I feel get paid more than me because they were just hired and I work on more complex accounts. I’m at $69K CAN with 2 years of experience. Their argument against an adjustment is to maintain equity with those who have similar years of experience but I don’t think my salary it reflects the responsibilities I’ve taken on.

3. Senior Management

I’m thinking about applying at WTW for a Senior Account Manager role in the Chicago office. How do referrals work at WTW? Also, I have 4 years of experience in group captive insurance programs as well as most ancillary lines on the broker side. Does anyone else have group captive experience and could provide some advice on best companies to move to where I can use that expertise? I want to move to a larger company since I’m at a small place with not much room for growth currently.
