I want to take a solo trip to Hawaii end of March. This would be my 1st time there. Looking to stay in Oahu. Hotel recommendations pls? I don’t plan on renting a car. Thanks
I wonder what this means for return to office plans.
Didn’t realize the suite night awards on SPG / Marriott had an expiry at the end of the year :( Any tips on how to save them / carry over ?
Morning flights delayed 9+hrs due to mechanical issue, was able to change to a different flight later tonight should I still ask for points?
For any AA platinum members - is it worth it? Flying from DCA to ORD. Thinking about the status challenge but $500 for plat challenge + plat now is steep. Sick of united silver.
Has anyone tried italic’s pillows? It’s a membership-only e-commerce site and they claim that their pillows are the same quality as the Ritz Carlton pillows. Would appreciate any feedback!
Alright 🐟 🐠 fam, we’re at the halfway point in the year 📆. Post your miles / status for next year. Me: 55k MQM (didn’t travel much the first three months) but now staffed in SF and based in NYC
Y'all. Hyatt and Hilton are doing instant status matches right now. Go get it. No such thing as having too many statuses.
Mattress suggestions please. I have sealys memory foam but SO hates it. SO was suggesting Westin heavenly bed and apparently Ritz sells one too. What do you have and are u happy with it?
Reserve vs SPG, thoughts? I got the reserve last year and have been using to pay all hotels, should I cancel now when the fee is charged again and go back to SPG? I like the flexibility of having points outside of spg tough
Wouldn't want to be the agency managing Marriott's web development. Largest hack in history?
For SPG hotels to make the stay requirements for platinum do you have to make reservations at separate hotels or just individual reservations?
Any way to quickly get to Silver Medallion status on Delta if I’ve used a status match within the past 3 years? Can I buy MQMs?
Best SPG/Marriott hotels in Colombia?
When I first started traveling, I used to prefer to stay at the W, Andaz, Meridien...no matter where I travelled. Now I find myself at the Fairmont, Four Seasons, Ritz...signs I am getting older?
Flying United from SF to Houston every week... How many weeks will it take to get any sort of useful status?
Hi! Has anyone completed the diversity and inclusion certificate online through Cornell university? Thoughts? Worth it? Helpful in your career? Thanks!!
Is it normal for companies to schedule more rounds of interviews with you after the on-site?
What are some atypical interview questions you’ve asked or been asked? The one that caught me most off guard, though an easy answer was, “What would you do if you weren’t doing advertising?”
Weird. 32 and only started thinking a kid might be fun to have with my boyfriend but also thinking “nahhh”. Going to be a fun 10 years figuring that one out 🤔
Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
Rejected from my MBB interview after months of prep and nailing the cases. Been extremely depressed since and I wonder if I’ve blown my chance.
Does anyone regret not choosing a more lucrative career? A few friends in PE are making close to half a million a year, and I can’t say I’m not jealous making just over $100K 😖. I recognize that I still make a decent salary, but maybe I should have toughed it out in banking/PE instead?

Customer Success Manager vs Product Manager at a startup - which one’s a better exit option (in terms of career opportunities, compensation growth, ease of transition from consulting, etc.)??
anyone know the comp and benefits package at Apple for a global supply manager within the strategic sourcing team??
Hi FB! I’m looking to fill a Sr. Account Director role. It’s a boutique agency based in NYC, but remote is ok as we’re all remote at the moment. Luxury car experience is a plus!! Please DM me if you’re interested or know anyone who might be!
Never have I been able to charge more than 40 hrs on any project I have done (though I was expected to work more). Every day of bench and pto hurts my utilization 😭
I’m a Product Manager who wants to change careers. What is a job where I can work independently and am more task oriented? Meaning I want to know what I have to do for the day, and I can knock it out at my own pace. Maybe it’s COVID, but I’m sick of meetings with other people and simply want to be the owner of the outcome instead of being dependent on other departments/people. Obviously bonus points if it’s a sensible transition from a PM!
Has anyone (particularly in account or strategy) gotten an MBA? How was it helped your career/would you recommend?
Does anyone have recruiter contacts in San Fran?
Hey just curious what’s some of the best briefs? Now is the time to brag!!! Client, problem, and catalyst idea. Shoot.
I have 2 job offers, one in San Francisco and one with a Fortune 500 company in Nashville. Is going to San Francisco worth it if the pay is comparable?
Fucking hate Delta. Missed my flight. I was with my 4 months old 👶 daughter. She was hungry and crying I requested em to let me check in bag early instead waiting in Line. They said no. Morons.
