Can you cash in on the lodging per diem and use air bnb instead of booking the preferred rate hotels for client travel? I think I'd rather have the cash than the hotel points.
Once the new year starts can we contact our respective hotel/car rental/airline companies to ensure a fast track to retain our statuses
Hi Ladies- any of you have a peloton bike? Was it worth it? How often do you use it considering that’s you travel often during a non-Covid time?
Apparently using headphones is soooo last year. 3 random people unrelated people decided to take turns watching videos on their phones with full sound during the flight.
Strategy I’ve been running courtesy of BC: long put on Tesla 5/15, long call weeklies at lows to delta hedge, sell at high and simultaneously avg down long puts cuz it’s about to blow anytime

Does anybody else wish that the Firm just gave a per diem for travel and meals as opposed to just an Amex allowance. I never even come close to the $100 a day allowance when traveling.
My flight from DCA-> TPA literally just had to abort takeoff to let a 12 year old boy deplane. Ready for a damn drink!
I have a Delta voucher that expires in a few days. Any tips, loopholes, etc on how I can "extend" the expiration date? It sucks because I can't transfer it to a friend or anything.
How does everyone bill for travel? Example - flying out Monday for a depo on Tues Wed, flying back Thursday. My gut has always been to bill for working hours time on the flying days and hearing days, but is that what everyone does? Can I bill 8 hours (or more) for a full travel day even if I’m not working every minute (but I’m also not not-working)? Nobody at my firm talks about this and at this point I’m too embarrassed to ask.

PWCs new expense system is awful.
Need ethics/moral help from my fellow 🐟 I got laid off from ACN earlier this year. I accepted an offer and started at a boutique consulting firm exactly one month ago today. This morning, I got an email from Deloitte recruiting for the same position I’m in now, which is where I want to develop my career. Part of me wants a break from the big consulting firms, but at the same time, going to a Big 4 would feel more at home to me. Is it worth entertaining the offer, or should I just stay away?
BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
Business traveler here. I stay at Marriott/SPG hotels. I can’t bill flights so I charge hotels, taxis and food each week. Which is better Amex SPG or Chase Sapphire Preferred for building points?

Graduated 2018 with STEM major/extension. 3 years working, and in 2 of those years USCIS ran 2 H1B lotteries. So 5 lotteries and I still didn’t get it. The chance of not getting it 5x in a row is ~25% chance ^ 5 = 0.097%. Insane. Also, I don’t know anyone who graduated earlier than 2018 and did not get it on the first three tries.
