Looking to get a new credit card. Is chase sapphire the best out there for cashback/benefits?
Anyone aware of which of their clients have traveling opportunities (or had pre-covid)? I'm not talking regular consulting travel, but rather conference travel, trips for corporate training, occasional work trips to other offices, opportunities to relocate temporarily or permanently to international offices, etc.
Help! Last minute trip to Hawaii, want to use points. Have about 250k points thru both Chase and Amex (each). Also have Amex Plat. - Chase is running 1.5x points to transfer to Bonvoy right now. - Amex has basically the same deal as Chase - every 2 pts transfer to Bonvoy for 3 pts (am I doing the math right?) - Amex also has $200 FHR/Hotel Collection annual credit for one of the hotels I'm considering - Could also transfer points to Hyatt, but not as good hotel options where I'm headed CONT...

Vacation Question- Westin vs W (Paris)?
Need some advice. I take home roughly 4k/month after taxes and IRA contributions (6% 401k and 3% Roth). My rent is around 900 and I usually spend 300-400 on my credit card. Cont...
My MD makes joke yet subtle jab about my expenses. My reply: wait does this mean I can’t book Westin anymore?
Do any of the top consulting firms have analytics roles (preferably not super technical) that don’t require weekly travel?
Ex-bf posted on social media to say he was so turned on thinking about new gf during an international flight that he went to the restroom so he could [ahem ahem], then he used the resulting “fluids” to draw a heart on the bathroom mirror. HE DREW IT WITH HIS STUFF. Important context: he’s 33 freaking years old, has PhD, and we broke up partly because he couldn’t express affection. So, this is… evidence of personal growth?!🥴 I can’t even be jealous because I’m just so like wtf, 🤮🙄🤦♀️!

60k Bonvoy points for 30k AA miles - yay or nay? Have 500k bonvoy points, and 140k AA miles. Plan to redeem AA miles for round trip to HKG.
Business etiquette question: when traveling with your boss is it okay to ride your boss's coattails with regard to airline status. For example, he gets free checked bags so he will check mine with his to get higher unloading priority and to save the company a few shekels. I also use the priority lines with him when we need to go to the airline counter and when we board the plane. I am American & travel mostly to latin American countries (since feelings towards queues might change on culture).
I haven't worked in consulting long enough to know if I like it (3 months). Have yet to travel, make my own slide decks, or work 50+ hr weeks. However, I just received an offer for IB. Do I stay or leave?
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
Have 3 years industry experience doing full core system implementations (insurance). Moving to big 4 next month as SA (25 years old). Any tips on what to expect moving from industry to big 4?
If someone has already recovered from covid, and the vaccine doesn’t prevent you from getting covid, and you still have to wear a mask, what is the incentive to try and convince them to get the vax?
PSA: some airports without clubs get a credit at restaurants with the CSR Priority Pass. E.g. American Tap gets $28 off/person (up to $56) in terminal C at DCA. I’ve paid for my annual fee by now.
Has anyone transitioned into product management? I would love to hear your story! I have 8 years experience in project management but I don’t know how to pivot. I don’t think I want to pivot internally because I’ve heard negative things about our product management teams. I’ve been thinking about moving into project management at a SaaS company but that is proving to be hard since I have no SaaS experience. Would love to hear anyone experience on moving into product management.
So many take home assignments for tech roles. They say you only need 2-3 hours to finish the excel/PPT presentation, but I usually take the whole day. Is this the norm now?

What is IBM CIC (Client Innovation Center) ? Can anyone highlight what this Unit deals with? What type of projects are there from technology and career growth point of view?
I’m wondering from those who have moved from account to strategy how you’ve liked it and what were your motivations, pros and cons of the jump and what you think about the trajectory of your career and salary now. The head of strategy at my agency recently said I could be on her team and I’m extremely intrigued but surprised as I just always thought I’d be on the account side since I do so well there.
I heard Google is mandating vaccines before returning to work. Is this causing any departures? Googlers appear likely to be pro-vaccine, but I'm open to applying to someone's spot if there will be openings soon.
Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!

Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
Hi, OPT question for folks. My student visa expires in December (EAD expiresin first week of January). I will be enrolling in day 1 CPT college but was told I don’t need to go back to hone country to get my visa stamp on passport. My concern is will this affect me down the road if I apply for green card let’s say in 4 years. Because my passport does not have a valid visa after this year but I will still be staying in the USA under my masters I-20. Thanks!
