Hey Big 4, has PWC, EY, and Deloitte committed to a "no travel until Jan 1" comment yet?
I have 37 nights and 132k points with spg. This only gets me 2-3 nights in a city like DC Paris NYC booking through their site for a nice hotel. Any better way I should use these points?
Based out of Boston, considering moving to Jetblue (currently on United). I feel Jetblue has better connectivity from Boston. Any advise on whether this is a good move?
Got a message saying I could change my United flight with no change fee because of an itinerary change. I checked and there are fully refundable rates I could change to (current rate is not fully refundable). Couldn't I change it to a fully refundable rate then... Get a full refund? What's the catch? Is it that normally you would pay $200 change fee to go to a fully refundable fare? In that case it still seems better than losing your entire fare in the case you really can't make a flight.
My H1B visa (stamped) with my old employer is valid till September 2022, do I still need to get my new H1B stamped if I go visit my family in December? I am also married to a US citizen but we haven’t started the Green Card process yet.
If you have a negative balance on your credit card (overpay every month) and use it until you go back to zero, do you still earn points/ cash rewards on your usage. Context: I am trying to see if I can essentially use my credit card as a debit card but still earn points at the same time.
Fishes, need advice on submitting medicals now vs later? My PD is May 2012 in EB2. With the Oct-21 visa bulletin, I was finally eligible to start my AOS process. I thought I will also get the medical exam done and submit my I693 along with my AOS documents. However, here is where the things became bit tricky. Documentation wise I am all set to submit my AOS. However the I693 is taking some time to be signed by civil surgeon due to some findings which came in my bloodwork & chest X-ray. Contd.
Any tricks to converting your Amex points into gift cards or some equivalent to get a better Amazon conversion? $70 for 10k points seems weak when a lot of the retailers do $100 for 10k.

Hey Fam. Spouse & I have been planning to start trying to conceive this year & specifically this month (27 and 28). Has anyone else felt very ready to start a family but when it’s time to start trying, start second guessing if you’re ready and thinking about all of the pros and cons. Should we wait another year? What if we have trouble getting pregnant and kick ourselves for waiting? Will people see us more as just parents and not as much for our successful careers we work so hard for?
I have an interview with Amazon and they say to "dress comfortably" and that they are a "casual work environment." Should I just wear business casual? I assume a suit would be overdoing it based on that description
Has anyone called your bluff on a competitor interview? FWIW, I did pretty well on the penultimate round for a FAANG company and am expecting the final round to be scheduled soon. However, I have a final round with another company (comparable pay) scheduled for tomorrow. Can I tell them that I have this final round FAANG interview scheduled for next week in the hopes they pay me more (even though it hasn't been scheduled yet and may never be scheduled)
Any clue on what to expect in an interview with a managing director at JPMC? I am interviewing for a tech lead position, and this is the first interview after the phone screen. I would appreciate any insights/tips from related experience (depth, culture, etiquette, attire for virtual interview, etc.), and how the positions stack up (MD, ED, VP, etc.).
Health Advances interview coming up - would love insights into the culture and trends in project work! TIA!

Any new hire who was able to negotiate their base salary at Salesforce - how much (%) were you able to add on? How did you do it?
Is it true that all PWC staff (including managing and strategy consulting) can be fully remote?
Planning to leave PwC. I have two offers that I need to respond to tomorrow. Both are for the same base pay (higher than what I make now)and similar other benefits. Everyone I interviewed with was great. The role at the first company likely has little room for growth but the tasks I feel I could do easily. Work life balance would be amazing. The second company I’d be the first dedicated tax person for the public corporation. Both companies Glassdoor ratings are around 4. Which would you choose?!
Let's say I want to boomerang. What steps should I take while I am still at the firm to be in a strong position to do so 1-2 years from now?
