For the current Marriott mega bonus, do you get a free night for EVERY two stays, or do you get a free night only for the FIRST two stays? Marriott website is not clear on this. Thanks.

Has anyone been to the ritz Carlton in Cancun? Is it in a good location? Thoughts on your experience?
With Michael Thomas out, who would you replace him with in a PPR league today, TY Hilton or Emmanuel Sanders? Like Sanders but worried about Brees after 4 weeks off.
Have one night in wine country without accommodations planned. Anyone have insights / experience in Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance vis a vis Westin Verasa Napa?
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
Did anyone get the SPG announcement email saying the accounts merge is going to be official come August? Does this mean our SPG points will start diluting??

Any way to get a hotel room with a view of the Eiffel Tower in Paris using Bonvoy points?
How much total comp raise would you need to go to another big 4, equally reputable in the space. They claim that they will reduce your travel from 80% to 25%, which is a big plus for me.
Confession: I wish there were more minorities working at the firms and clients. I am so sick and tired of acting all “corporate” and feeling like everything just has to be serious all the time. I have worked with minorities in other jobs before and it is always so much more of a collective culture as opposed to an individualistic culture (speaking purely from my own personal experiences and anecdotes).
Do you like your company culture? What type of culture would you be looking for if you joined a new team?
Interested in knowing base salary for entry level associates in “boutique” consulting firms. I am trying to convey the message to the leadership at my firm that base salaries are too low... (NYC)
Aspiring to be management consultant I don't hold a MBA degree, but have 3 years of rich experience in Business Planning & particularly S&OP All this to say, might you have time to guide me #MBB #McKinsey #BCG #bain # accenture
2nd year in and having gone straight from undergrad to banking, cant imagine what it feels like to have a “normal job” (i.e. 9-5, weekend free, no work on vacation, can unplug completely off work)
MBB Experienced Hire 🐠 - did you have strategy experience when you applied to MBB? I have some Tech, and M&A experience. Do you think I can be a good candidate (applying at Assoc/Consultant level).
What are project manager roles at FAANG like? Is the work exciting? Is comp similar to other positions. Thank you in advance for your insights.
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
Do you also hate "sandwich feedback" (praise, criticism, praise)? I know it's part of western culture. But clear and direct feedback should be enough. Working 12 hours a day, no one should have to waste time on this.
Does anyone work fewer than 5 days and have a management role at their agency? I work 4 days and am being told it’s holding back being considered for a promotion.
Does anyone have PowerSchool and Google classroom connected? We use PS Teacher pro for attendance and grades. We use Google Classroom for posting assignments and grades.
Long stretch - my educational background is Business Psych at PSU and social psych program at Yale - I’m an analyst with a background in brand strategy and project support. I am really into marketing archetypes, brand reputations, psychology of experiences. I’m analytical but also creative and a huge people person. Anyone out there like me who’s found their calling? People tell me sales, UX design, etc
Have an interview for the S&O analyst with the Scaled Revenue Programs team. Any insights will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
What do y'all think of this Forbes article? I think placing more ownership in the hands of internal SME's is valid, but entirely removing consultants whom have lessons learned through the practice of numerous large transformations would be a mistake https://www.forbes.com/sites/steveandriole/2020/07/29/stand-aside-mckinsey-accenture--cap-gemini--the-case-for-internal-consulting-for-digital-transformation/amp/
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
Has anyone ever had their luggage lost by LOT airlines? If so, were you able to get any reimbursement?
TFW when you interview for a job, don't get it, then a year later, you're asked to sort resumes at your current job...and the person who got that job you were rejected for is at the top of the pile
