I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA

A realization: After fishbowl, my second most opened app during the day is the Delta App. I already know my seat, but probably hoping for an upgrade or maybe I just wish everyday is going home day.
In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
Has anyone seen Hotel/Airline status challenges? I was told by some people I work with we usually get them a couple times a year. I remember one when I was at welcome to EY but that's it.
We want what we can’t have. Right now we can’t travel for work. When we can have that again (don’t ask me when, because no one really knows), we’ll miss being able to work from home.

What is the tipping etiquette on the free platinum breakfast in a JW Marriott? The server just gets coffee / orange juice and you serve yourself. It is an overpriced buffet that I would never dine in.

Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”

How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole. Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).

How to deal with an exploding offer? I interviewed for a company and was very excited for it. 1 recruiter interview & 1 with a couple team members. Then I got a short term offer a few days later, tried to negotiate and they came back a week later with a final offer. Rate stayed the same but was told I need to answer by next day. Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering
