Stuck in india due to delayed visa processing. HR just asked me to either take vacation time or unpaid time off while I wait. Curious to know if anyone in my situation explored any other options ?
Delta one 🙌🏻
Just sat next to Ben Carson on my flight out of Atlanta. Asked him are you scared bro cause you're sitting next to a Muslim? No response followed by a silent flight. Smh
Polling time: Has anyone recently got Administrative Processsing when trying to renew your H1B visa? If so, how long did it take to get it cleared? Try to assess if it is worth the risk to renew.
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.
Budgeting: 1. How much are you budgeting for travel each year? 2. How much debt do you expect to have upon graduation? 3. How many years after graduation do you expect to have paid back your loans?
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Where are all my ESG and CSR folks? Apparently the economic slowdown from covid 19 has caused emissions to slow down incredibly.

Anyone who’s not a creative recently start at a US agency where they are sponsoring your work visa? Trying to figure out if the TN - Management Consultant visa is still possible and if not what the best visa is if I don’t have a ton of awards/press, or am able to transfer within the same company. TIA
Delta app and site down for anyone else?
United needs cash to pay for better PR. Upvote if you think they should relinquish some gates to Delta @ORD!
I was so excited about the CSR priority pass.. have yet to use it, it's accepted in so few places 🙄
People who have the Amex platinum - how did you use the airfare credit? Preferred airline is UA and I don’t want to lose the credit at the end of December. No other trips planned until next year.
What's the deal if you have a vaca planned but you are swapping firms and the vaca will take place while employed at new firm? You tell them during interview?

Looking to relocate to the south-east U.S. to be nearer family. Anyone know of any good agencies/clients hiring senior roles at the moment or will be soon? Ideally one that's going hybrid at least. Fully remote also good, but would like to be in the SE so going to the office would be at least an option. And yes, I've looked at LinkedIn, Indeed, Google etc.
Stuck at ATL. 4 hour delay!!

I accepted an offer from a company based in SF couple of weeks ago for a 70% raise from my current pay (TC). Currently in East Coast. Base pay increase was only 10% and rest is all in RSU’s. I can’t stop thinking if am making the right move. Currently in Big 4, I like my current job & I learn a lot day to day. But very clearly underpaid. Also, Pandemic has put a lot of strain on my mental health. My productivity is all time low, can’t focus and concentrate. (Cont..)
How do I ask my manager for a promotion? Or when to expect it? Im still quite young in the company but i think I do good work and i work a lot. I'm scared he'll say I'm too young
thoughts on working at Kraft? looking to move to internal and saw a Manager role in the HR learning and development group. any thoughts?
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
Do other big 4 have Executive Assistants? KPMG is saying they are doing what other big 4 models are using. Do the partners and MDs do their on admin work?
I know my client needs an Accounting Manager. I know this because they’re startup med device company that has their books in complete shambles. The current accounting team isn’t very strong. How do I let the client know that I would be interested in joining them? They’re not actively recruiting for any position but I know they’d benefit from it. Serious responses only :)
Highlights of my day were making my husband's lunch and telling both of my staff to skip work (one for CPA exam, one for illness). #winning
