How many Airbnb points per night?

Man I got so many hotel points that I can afford to skip on a few here and there.

Check to see if it’s in your company’s policy. It may not be for risk reasons. Also, if you’re there long term your manager or relationship team should negotiate a lower rate.

I echo PwC1. The reason this wasn’t allowed was because people could stay at their friend’s place and have the client/firm pay more than market rate. AKA the opposite arrangement of our EPA administrator. Doesn’t matter if it was or was not the case, at my firm, appearance and reality are one and the same.

Not allowed at Uncle D

SOS! Need to set up a lunch with a higher profile client who doesn’t drink alcohol in NYC (so food needs to be on point, and a view is preferable!).

Tried Restoration Hardware Rooftop and they only take parties of six and no private events.. but thinking something in that vein where there’s a potential activity (aka walking around) and not JUST drinking!

Anyone else in a long term project that feels toxic? I feel like I have no support whatsoever and feel like I have such major anxiety related to work.

For once it would be nice to feel valued...

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?
