Anyone successfully book multiple rooms with points? Perhaps even at a discounted point rate? (I.e thing booking rooms over a weekend for wedding guests)
Will be leaving and cancelling my Corp card. Need to open an Amex with MR to keep the points. Am thinking of doing Amex everyday since the higher tier cards seem too expensive. Any thoughts?
I feel like I’m being pushed into a decision that will result in a bunch of layoffs. Everything is set up in a way that points towards this option, and I’m being asked to pull the trigger. I feel so uncomfortable.

I’m passively taking interviews. I’m in DC, couple years post-MBA with >, currently in an exec cert program, and multiple experiences with clients. I was 5+ years as an O on active duty, but I’ve been slowly diminishing those bullet points with corporate exp and education instead. They were great bullet points for getting me into grad school, but I haven’t seen their RoI with private sector/corporate HMs.

Hi! I am trying to conduct some competitive analysis specifically on a set of metrics (e.g. latency) for the purpose of benchmarking.
The challenge here is that most of these metrics are not public, so I'm curious how others may have approached similar initiatives. I think some anecdotal data points can be gathered through the sales team but such data obviously comes with a tone of caveats on accuracy.
Sheraton overbooked me and transferred me to a Marriott. Also gave me 11K points to “compensate for inconvenience”. How much should I ask for?
Help! Planning on flying Qatar Airways from Philly- Doha- Manilla next month for vacation. I'd like to use points. I have AA and AMEX points available. What's the best way to do this?
The travel, points, and expensed meals were a big factor on why I chose to pursue consulting. Since travel projects will be reduced for the foreseeable future what advice do you have for a first year consultant?
I wish more women creatives were amplified over men, considering all the inequities. Share women’s portfolios, to give more visibility, because we know there are many kickass women in advertising, bonus points if she/they are from underrepresented, or marginalized groups. Stop bro-ship. They don’t need the help.
Did you got 10000 worth of Vantage points?

When does it make sense to move from biglaw to an amlaw 200 firm when partnership prospects are good (senior associate - 2 or 3 years out)? Is there such a thing as a lifestyle firm?

Say I’m looking to completely jump ship out of this industry. What types of jobs do you think we could still get for comparable salaries with the experience and skills we have?

I expect the return to office policy will allow me to WFH… or rather just FH when I’m hungover on Friday. If this is the case then I’m satisfied
I am an analytics major and have 2 years left until graduation. I am attempting to find a smaller company or a mentor that would like to allow me to work 15-20 hours per week assisting their day to day needs while also allowing for 2-5 hours a week to assist me in my growth as a professional through either face to face or virtual conferences. If there is anyone that knows a company that would have interest please comment

Scale is def a 1 or 2 at best 🤔
I come on vacation to escape the heaviness of the news, politics, and sad conversation. This British guy has tried to pick a political fight with me every single time he sees me this entire time at the resort. He just moved to Florida and keeps trying to engage me in political conversations “just to bait me and mess with me.” The last conversation was him telling me that men have as much right to decide whether a woman should have an abortion as the woman. It’s my last night of vacation 🙄
I’ve noticed an ever increasing number of life coaches. One thing I noticed is that the majority of them have not really achieved (professionally or personally) much and are trying to coach others? That makes me wonder… is there real demand for all this? Are people so lost that they really see value in it?
Can we actually start a thread on motivation to get through January/tomorrow? I’m dying here 🤣🤣
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup.
During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
should i just not hit our deadlines and see what kind of consequences occur? they’re so unreasonably tight
Up until college, I thought green bananas were just a different type of banana that tasted different.
This is me today and have no regrets.
I heard something new (well too me lol) the other day that has stuck in my head.
Confession: I want a “Brain Dump” partner.
It was explained to me that at the end of the day you have a sit down with your partner/roommate/friend and “brain dump”—talk about anything that happened during the day, at work or personally that bothered you or happened so that you can get it all out before you go to sleep. Then you can start fresh each day. 😊 just thought I would share!
Having a work crush is a nice distraction
It’s Anthony Davis night. 😍
I have this weird huge anxiety around sending out emails to my BU. Personally, it’s because I’ve received feedback that I’m not concise or clear in my written communication. I’m trying to be patient and gracious with myself, & have been reading books to improve my vernacular. I also send my email drafts to my manager first, & she’s been supportive and improving them for me. Which is great! But I feel a tad embarrassed. Any tips on how to regulate that feeling, & improve written comm?
Female in late 30s and never been in a serious long term relationship. Just been really unfortunate in this part of my life. Friends I grew up with know this but I lie to new friends and dating prospects because I know they will perceive as a red flag.
Anyone ever work as a bank teller? Do you look at customer’s recent transactions out of curiosity?
Just had a really interesting interaction at a bank I’ve gone to for years (and friendly with everyone there) and later pull up my account and the last transaction on my checking was an OF subscription 😂🙈.
Can anyone recommend me a horror movie or book that is truly terrifying? Like to the point I'll be damaged for the rest of my life and need therapy. In the mood for a good scare.
Confession: I want to go out while I’m on top. Leave my current job and maybe current life. It might be the time. Just have to decide what to do.
My boss interrupted me today mid-sentence with a raised voice, and when I asked “Will you let me finish?” they said “NO, I will NOT” and continued angry-preaching a response to something I wasn’t saying. I thought that phrase was supposed to be more useful :(
