Short 8,000 bonvoy points for a quick getaway, any ideas on quickly earning or should I buy them? Anyone used the Points Advance option before? TIA!
Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....
Worked as a data scientist in tech for a year and then switched to consulting at PwC, where I’ve worked for the past two years. Thinking of doing the Canadian Express Entry program.

When do you tell your ECD that the great idea they’re raving about from a team has been done (in a super bowl spot, so they should know) I feel like it’s bad form to send a link. Do I just wait til someone inevitably points it out?
Getting sick of selling the market, watching it go my way, and then roaring back. So, I went back to revisit the daily. Could we be trading an extension long? Is that the reason why this market is going up? In Mid-June, we sold off to 2394 in ES. We can back for a 2nd test in early July but, rallied and we have rallied ever since. 3375 is the objective, 125 points away, and right at old highs. Do we have to goto old highs before a sell off? Maybe? Buy the 21 (yellow) and 51

Is buying points ever worth it?
Hi all! Would anyone know how safe Park Hill is? I'm specifically looking at MLK Jr. Blvd, about 5~10 blocks east of Colorado Blvd, near the City of Axum Park. I was told to steer away from Five Points, but I couldn't find much about Park Hill online. Ideally, I'd like to commute into downtown via public transit 1-2 times a week, so any insights into Denver buses would also be greatly appreciated!
I have a review coming up It's the first one I've had where the agency asks you to just write, previously places have had a document that lists each level and the tasks expected of you to compare against And my mind is so blank! What are some good points to consider? How do you structure yours?

Any recommended books, trainings, skills for transitioning from consulting to chief of staff role? The role is loosely defined but overall expect to be focused on strategic growth/ corp dev, exec / investor and all company communication, conflict resolution and the like. Also appreciate learning points from those who already transitioned to a similar role.
How many points?

I was laid off in June and just got a job offer that I am excited about. However, my partner and I are also in discussions about moving. The job would be remote for at least another 5+ months so it wouldn’t be an issue now, but eventually people will be back in the office in some hybrid plan. Is it better to float the possibility of working remote long term with HR now? Or do I accept and say nothing til we’ve officially decided to move. I don’t want to lose the opportunity. What would u do?

What’s the general cash/ investment split for you? I’m 100k in cash, 20k in 401k and 15k in stocks. No debts. Is that a decent mix or should I be putting more in the market and less cash?
In the process with ZS but not sure if I want to stay in consulting. However I’ve heard people are pretty happy there. Feeling really isolated in current position as I’m remote. Don’t want to (contd)
Anyone else had to deal with construction next door? I get the daily jackhammers while trying to work from home and not using our backyard due to noise/dust. But every time they infringe on our property, the response is hostile. Broke our front fence from pulling on it, stand on our back fence until it shakes, and today dropped something on our roof. Each time they act offended when asked about it. 3x had drug addicts using on the site since it’s left unsecured, and they still won’t secure it.
I know none of you are medical doctors but y’all amaze me everyday with new tidbits of information.

Any McKinsey & Company healthcare consultants (especially commercial healthcare on operations, strategy)? How’s the culture and projects overall? Is it a big sector? TIA!
Does anyone organise one-on-one virtual catch ups within your team? Would males to be weirded out if a female associate reached out just for a catch up...? 🥴 I started the job few weeks ago (WFH) so I never really had a chance to make friends within my team. Being extroverted, I feel odd not having coworkers just to comfortably chat to at work. My only work friend is the only other girl in the team.
