Haven’t traveled long haul international since pre-covid…longing for a 2 hangover flight
Delta Platinum today ✨🌟
What’s the most points you’ve gotten from a hotel for anything that wasn’t a stay/purchase?
Watched Duckweed on Delta Studio. Was so unexpectedly good! Cinematic gold. High recommend if you're bored on the plane.
Any travel tips for Halloween in New Orleans? Looking to stay at a Marriott brand on or around Bourbon street.
First time flexing in NYC. Flight is at 6 am from JFK, I'm staying in UES. What time should I head out, 3:30?
If I’m starting on a 100% travel engagement and my parents live an hour away from my home office & they’ve been begging me to move on back home, is it worth keeping an empty in my home city?
Heard about an unbelievable offer for the AA MasterCard - 500 bonus points when you sign up on the flight. I signed up for 7 of them, I was so excited!
Which plane to pick? Both United flights, 20 min time difference, same price. One is a 737 MAX 9 and the other 737-900 (layout 3 per seat guru). Buying 1st class tickets. I know there was the whole thing with the MAX planes in 2019/2020, but I have reasonable confidence that it won’t be a problem. But aside from that it’s a coin flip for me unless someone has some input
There was a website someone mentioned on here, similar to Scott Flight Deals. Was a great website letting you pick dates and duration and it would recommend trips. Can't find it in my bookmarks. Help?
I've developed an unusual amount of distain for the rapping girl in the Virgin America safety video...
I got the J&J vaccine (only one I could get back in April) and unlike the MRNA vaccines, it looks like there is very little data on how it performs against the Delta variant. Any other J&Jers out there feeling a little nervous?
GC holders are not held to the US travel ban. Does that count only when your GC is in hand or i140 approval and AP would work too? Thanks in advance
Just found out I’ll be promoted to a new role with way more responsibilities next month. This is my first big “promotion” and I’ll have a few people reporting into me. Fear aside, I just realized
Just joined D and looking at rollover options from old 401k. Are there any arguments against rolling over and leaving the old 401k as is?
What are some benefits of mid-tier firms vs the big 4. Is there actually a thing as work-life balance? Do hours really get capped at 55 during busy season? Do the external opportunities get worse without the big 4 name recognition?
Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
Freelance to full time in NYC. Should annual match (or be within a few thousand) of what hourly works out to be? Yes they cover health etc but seems like more responsibilities. Hourly was mid market rate.
What is the best priority pass lounge at LGA?
Anybody did the apics certification in logistics ? I have the choose between the cslp and cscp but not sure which one I should be doing
Monoco Coin with Visa card? Use this link to get $10. Anyone buy the coin? Seems promising get.mona.co/IVWT/mpako51AIJ
Help! I’m from a general strategy consulting background (big 4) and have some experience in large scale transformations as well. I know joining tech companies seems to be a good move right now, but I’d like to understand, what are the best types of roles that ex consultants could seamlessly move to? I heard Product Managers, Product Owners, Program Managers, but are there any others? I want to exit for sure but I don’t want to make a short term decision I regret.
This “always on” slack/teams culture needs to end. Timestamped emails after and before work hours should be penalised as signs of poor time management skills and project management efficiencies. I hope we do like germans and labor laws are made for after work hour messaging.
Ugh, my downgraded Amex green card arrived today. Also t-minus 17 days until the new $60 mobile reimbursement. $1200+ in comp I will miss!
So as manager how do you deal when half your team is on bench and can’t find any other opportunities. Do you just go with flow and watch them go?
First day in industry and go to look at my time sheet.... What? There’s only one code I need to put my time to if I’m working? I can submit it weekly? And I don’t need to give at least 2 weeks advance for PTO when I’m requesting it? Oh me oh my why did I not make this move sooner!
Was communicating frequently with a McKinsey recruiter who asked me to inform them when I submitted my app for experienced hire. They acknowledged my referral and told me they would set my 1:1 coaching session. Then I got radio silence and its been 2 weeks....Should I be worried? Or is it still early
How is westin resort at Cancun ? I received an offer from SPG for a discounted 5D/4N stay and trying to decide if I should book it. Thanks!
Professionals that moved / transferred to NYC (let’s pretend normal times), is the work culture as intense as it seems? How is it compared to where you moved from?
I’m making 130 TC post MBA in NYC. I’m not unhappy about my job/company but it feels like there are a ton of better paying opps I could switch to. Am I right to think that? Would you be looking to move elsewhere in my position? Ive been in this role 1 year mainly doing market opp work
