Flying into DCA, DC is one of the prettiest, greenest cities I’ve flown into. I was listening to Kygo so that could be it too.
It's a balmy 16 degrees at JFK and there's a flight to Antigua across from my arrival gate...might be time for some last minute PTO
Is there a standard for Tier 1 vs 2 city. I am assuming Los Angeles is Tier 1 , what about OC/Irvine and San Diego. Some websites say San Diego is Tier 3, is there an official standard.
Sometimes I HATE ORD. Landed 15 min ago, been driving in circles ever since. No sign of gate
Parents are thinking about moving out of SoCal suburbs — any recommendations on other suburban cities outside of CA that also have relatively large asian communities, but is way cheaper?? They're currently eyeing Las Vegas / WA suburbs
Any firm happy hours in ATL today?
ATL bin stations. Last week I still thought it was a good idea. This week they make everybody wait and push the bins at the same time. Crazy! Takes forever!
NFTs. I get it on principle. I’m there for it! But I read headlines and basically art NFT space is like buying sneakers. They’re a big deal if you think they’re a big deal. But yeah, I guess that is art. Idk… I scroll through open sea and it’s like a church rummage sale of crap. I desperately want to join in the excitement of this new and next thing, but beyond licensing… which requires demand first… I guess I don’t get it.
One of my two favorite spots in LAX, the piano between T4/TBIT (the other favorite spot is the Qantas First lounge just a little further down)
Anyone at DCA? 🙋🏻♂️
Who else is stuck at lga 😩
Travel newbie here. Advice on typical wait time at EWR Term C (TSA-pre) at about 7am Monday? Have to be at gate by 8am. Thanks and happy Sunday fish
For those traveling through CLT Thursday night, what are your plans? Rebook to earlier flight or just hope Florence doesn’t impact your regular flight?
Well the good news is that my manager said it would be done by Monday morning to the client. The bad news is that he sent that email to the client at 7pm Friday and never texted me. Wait both are bad.
After nearly 20 years in the military serving in T&E and HR roles, I’m considering moving on and have been conducting lots of research into consulting. BS, MA, and SPHR cert - no MBA. I’m looking for suggestions or advise about transitioning. DC Metro area is likely landing spot.

I get it’s scary times and people are trying to be cautious. But if you are waving at me from a far because I am walking on the same sidewalk as you do, pausing and hiding away if you see me coming, or looking at me like I am a dirtbag, I hope you get the coronavirus for treating others unkindly. We are in this together and I am not trying to get it as much as you are. Rant over. And I didn’t really mean I want you to get it. I am frustrated what seems to be just rude gestures.
Would you work local if given the chance? 15 minute commute, solid 9-5, chargeable for 8 straight months. Potential to be really boring, but great client and experience in the end.
Switching from consulting to PE, what should I expect in terms of salary (and potential future earnings) and WLB? Currently an Associate at MBB, and I have startup/tech background. I was approached by a headhunter about this opportunity and I'm super interested, however, would like to know more to see if it's worth it. Thank you!
Fucked up and forgot to cancel my Westin hotel booking when I was told to be remote this week. Got charged for one night. Can anything be done?
Hi European 🐠 My company is currently looking for IT architects and tech consultants (any level). We’re a boutique with a amazing team culture and really very interesting projects, great learning opportunities (aka we don’t get hired to take over tasks no one wants to do, we get hired to make a difference) + above average comp. Relocation is not necessary, as long as you’re in CET time zone and live close to an airport. DM me for more information! Cheers
I have 50 sick days a year. Been with the company a year and never used one. Today, after letting them know about covid symptoms. I used ONE. Im now being asked to show a positive test. I took a rapid one and it was negative but they said it could be false due to my symptoms and exposure to someone who is positive. I need a new job...
Hi people, I am going to have the interview with TRS - Financial services team at EY london. This job is basically assesing the Non-performance loans portfolios of the banks.
