I am thinking of switching to United this year . Hardly flown United but I am platinum pro on AA. Will United do a status match for me? Or will I have to start from sliver? How do ppl ask for status
What do you’ll think of the Blockfi credit card? I am being offered the card. Would you take it and use it as your primary card?
8 o'clock meeting in the client site, caught an early flight and planned to get some sleep on the flight. The fucking baby next to me started crying his lungs out. FML.
Is there a Delta program that gives me status based on another status? Like Marriott Platinum leads to United Silver
What's the PwC rate code for Marriott? 🙋♂️
Does anybody else wish that the Firm just gave a per diem for travel and meals as opposed to just an Amex allowance. I never even come close to the $100 a day allowance when traveling.
For those of you who flew recently with JetBlue, how strict do they enforce the new no carry on policy?
Does anyone actually get complimentary upgrades due to United status? I just hit gold and so far it seems like a hoax.
CLEAR at IAD and DCA. Is it worth signing up? Lots of international and domestic travel coming up. Thoughts fish? Thanks!!
Looks like my credits score/history is screwed as I was away from US for 3 years. I have no loans and only 1 credit card. They couldn’t increase the limit beyond 6K. What do I need to do to come back in the good books?
Hi Deloitte 🐟, does Deloitte do premium processing? I'm ready to pay the fees. Can anyone who went through this help? My H1B got picked recently but I need to travel to India for sisters marriage.
Tis the season for mileage runs. Being new to constant travel, I’m not close enough to the next level. However.. share you’re craziest mileage run story! Living vicariously. Miles, cost, legs, time...
TN with H1B pending - can I travel abroad?
Can you buy delta global upgrade certificates from people or have other people apply to reservation? If yes, happy to do business (for my honeymoon!)
Delta guy starting a new project which American is the way better option...unfortunately. Is there a worthy status match program, and is it sponsored by PwC or just call American?
There's mention in the news about a possible coming new executive order on immigration. No details yet. I'm myself a nonimmigrant since 8 years, and while I've been very little impacted so far by all travel bans, restrictions and additional bureaucratic hurdles to date, this is the first time for me and my family that we start to feel fearful. If there's always a next uncertainty, always another possible sudden end to our current daily work, school and private lives, how long is it all worth it?
Miss my travel points. Anybody have any ideas for point boosting? Was thinking about flipping high value tickets..
Any tips to prep and pass PMP in one shot other than buying the book and reading every page of that?
Holding offer from acn CDO, decent salary but they mentioned they are lax on firing people if they aren't ready for promo. That's another way to say they don't promote as easily? Not sure what to do
Will my lifetime SPG nights and lifetime Marriott nights get combined in the new Marriott program?
There was this convo where a PML wanted to check with his counselee’s doctor if they are actually sick. I can’t seem to find it anymore. Can someone help me find it? I must read all of it. I can’t go to sleep without it.
Does alcohol tolerance affect other drug tolerance? Heard prescription cough syrup (with codeine) will "knock you out and you'll wake up feeling great" but I couldn't fall asleep and I'm still sick AF
Got an offer from another B4. What pieces of comp/benefits are actually negotiable? Base, sign-on? And if they won’t negotiate on those two, what else can be discussed? Thanks in advanced!
Having nightmares about my study/EM/client. Wake up sweaty and vividly remember everything that happened. I'm not usually a dreamer and have sound uninterrupted sleep. Anyone else face this/have tips?
Hi guys, Can someone give me some insights on TE Connectivity? I am currently working in a consulting firm. Any insights around the work culture will be helpful.
Anyone else feel like that if they aren’t doing the work themselves then it’s never done correctly? Doesn’t matter what it is - admin to client work - always materially incorrect. Also, doesn’t matter what training I give them - a quick overview or an in-depth working session. And then the Partners ask why I’m exhausted all the time.
Advise working with a coworker who doesn't "answer the question directly": I just joined a new company and I am starting to work with a coworker but I feel like he tends to deflect my questions all the time and he often gives a vague/BS answer. FOR EXAMPLE, I stepped in reviewing the list of deliverables needed for the project, I provided my input but instead of discussing the actual context, he would just gave me a bunch of historical background information. How do I "cut to the chase"?
MBB, would you be in consulting for the long term and try to make partner if it wasn't for the travel and impact on family life?
What have you done when you switch jobs and don’t qualify for FMLA or FFRCA and everyone in your household contracts COVID?
Any MBB folks willing to do a referral?
Switching consulting agencies atm. Currently I earn way below average at 42k€/p.a + car. Next week I am negotiating with another company wanting to employ me. I am actually bringing in a customer with a fixed 2 year project @ 1000€ all-in/day rate (5 billable days/week). What salary should I aim for - and what bonuses? I would love something around the market average of 65-75k is it realistic even though I am in my mid 20s?

What's going on with Facebook privacy practice hiring? A recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn. Has anyone here spoken to a recruiter yet? Or going through interview, TC conversations? Any insights will help!
Lesson learned: NEVER refer a friend to a project you currently work in, because that friend may end up being a poor performer. 🤦🏻♂️
Agency moms! What’s your maternity policy? Do you get fully paid 3 months? Or more than that? What else did you negotiate for? I haven’t talked to HR yet but wanted to see options you took. TIA:)
