Is business travel open again?
Question for anyone who knows, I have a Europe trip coming up next year and I am trying to travel to 4 different countries (Spain, Italy, France & London.) I saw an American didn’t need a visa for these four countries but my wife is saying she was told we WILL need a visa if we want to visit multiple European countries in a month span?
Would anyone here happen to know hotels with very firm mattresses? I stay at Marriott properties but I just sink into the bed and it isn’t doing my back any good :(
So my spg points and nights have still not merged with my Marriott account. Anyone else having this issue?
We have a trip to Miami planned in two weeks.
Just saw that Florida is averaging 20,000 cases day of mostly the delta variant. Super bummed as we’re both vaccinated and hopefully was going to get away, but looks like we may have to change plans. 😭
When booking flight tickets to india (MAS, BLR, HYD) , do you book directly with airline or travel agents. Which travel agents have given you best deal both in terms of $ and fastest to reach?
Anyone going for Canadian PR? Just makes so much sense with all the complications around H1B and the green card backlog. I have my I-140 approved and in the decade+ queue now.
Anyone currently working at the Delta Air Lines office in Bangalore? I have an offer for Lead Developer 1 from there and wanted some feedback from someone currently working there.
Need some guidance, I love the variety in work that consulting provides but I dislike the waste in work from churn and the travel that will come back at some point, is there a career out there that is interesting without either of the other two?
Am in FP n A with work visa. Please need some strategies to make a switch. All recruiters have same excuse - not sponsoring now. Thanks
Delta travelers: anyone know if we can get free comfort plus on award international flights as a Platinum? Right know shows that I have to pay to select a seat. Thanks !
Anyone do the 15 nights mandatory quarantine in Taiwan? I need to go back for visa reasons and looking up which hotel to stay at. Thinking of staying in Marriott for the points but would love any recs! Can I use someone’s Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador Elite contact or something? Overwhelmed with this whole process 🥲
Visiting your lovely city from NY two weeks from now! Please give me travel/tourist tips! Any cool Christmas or food markets open? Any museums to not miss, or skip? My friend and I already have White House tour tickets; but would love any recs you can give :) mid 20s F for reference
I have an offer and want to negotiate
1. London base salary but I have to absorb all the expenses (train + stay)
I am thinking to negotiate to
2. home base salary and have my expenses paid for
I know that's depends on the amount I have to travel (and potentially stay) but at the moment this is unknown. Past 8 months was just twice a month + 2 nights stay.
The only thing I know is it won't be every week, the return trian ticket is about £80-100, depends I could plan ahead.
Two of my last three hotel stays have had incorrect charges added. I was able to get both resolved by calling and being polite but is this common or was I just unlucky?
The first we were given someone else's restaurant/bar charges. The second we were given a random fee for using a reward night that apparently was supposed to be billed to corporate but was instead accidentally billed to my card.
I'd like to think these were honest mistakes but then again how many people would blindly pay it?
If I get a 120w travel charger, it should still work on airplanes as long as I’m not charging 65w+ worth of stuff, right?
Where would you begin w/ setting up your own solo practice? I am a military veteran and in need of some serious help (w/ starting a business that is). It is a long story, of which I might reveal more depending on the responses in the thread. Thanks in advance for entertaining such a broad question!
Hate that I’ve spent so much time helping my retired clients who do consulting take advantage of loopholes in the CAREs Act while small businesses who are really struggling can’t get a PPP loan.
I quit my job voluntarily to explore other areas of life, with the goal of finding a more meaningful career. I severely underestimated how bad I am with unstructured time. - TBC
Hi Guys ...
I am looking for a new opportunity/new role .
I have 5.5 years of experience in automation testing.
We got morning or evening lifters here? I’ve found when I force myself to go in the morning this allows me to save evenings for putting out the inevitable fires that come. Getting up at 5 sux tho!
Does anyone have recommendations for non-alcoholic drinks? I have been having soda with lime at happy hours, but also just found Athletic Beer that is n/a as an option. I’m tired of temptation and upturned or confused looks. Also, just have felt so much better not drinking and not going down a spiral - really want to keep things that way.
Thoughts on Uppababy Vista?
I've got two offers for remote position.
@Teksystems - 22LPA
@Altimetrik - 22 LPA + 1Jb
Yoe - 4.5
Tech stack - Java full stack
Which one to join and why?
Reviews about the companies will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
What is the expected range of a Senior Manager level at MBB vs Deloitte vs other firms? (Breakout base + expected bonus)
At Deloitte, my understanding is 250-300 base + 20-30% bonus.
Is this accurate? How does it compare to other firms?
For context I’m a manager making ~215k in base, bonus last year was 50k, and going up for SM this year.
Saw YSL is now on Rakuten cash back, discount on Gilt for brand new items. Is this ruining brand name?

I just love this bowl. It’s been my go-to place for many things. I hope y’all get to recharge and relax doing things that bring you joy this weekend.
Curious if anyone has had success in taking on contract or temptoperm jobs and having that develop into full time salaried employment... Anyone out there?
Hey guys how much will my in hand be? Thank you.
How's the growth in PwC India Advisory? I know it's a very open ended question, but assume that one's joining as a manager with 5 to 6+ years of experience. Kind of looking for best case/avg case scenarios: if one's looking at becoming a partner at the same org. Assume all the other things as constant (politics/overall market growth)
The pragmatic programmer is fucking long!
It's certainly useful in a lot of ways though. But damn is it long.
Anyone know of any senior strategy openings? Just got laid off and would greatly appreciate any leads.

Hi all! My 1-485 was filed concurrently with I—140 (filed PP), and 1-765/131 on 1/7. We just got separate receipts for all. I’ve been hearing receipts were taking 1-2 months... would we get updated receipts once I—140 is approved? Since it’s the basis for the AOS? There’s no priority date listed on the receipts! Thank you for any input... urgently needing a spousal EAD and want to know what to expect! Thanks for reading
Deloitte fishes on H1B- if you’re working from a remote location (50 miles away from your home office), do you submit that jurisdiction on DTE? If yes, wouldn’t that need an amendment? If no, wouldn’t uncle D find out and be upset?
My partner is a PhD student, US resident alien, and Indian national who has been a student in the US for 6-7 years now. He’s struggling to find a tax filing platform which’ll allow him to report income from fellowships and PhD salary, and also claim India-US tax treaty benefits. Does anyone know where he can get started?
Any H1B holders here who have started another job only on the transfer receipt? How has your experience been? I’m interviewing with FAANG and since USCIS have recently stopped premium processing they want me to start right after we get the receipt - vs waiting for an approval (~3-6 months). Thoughts?
Does EY make you pay back green card fee (including attorney fee) if you quit after 180 days of I-140 approval?
Has anyone living in the US got their H1B stamped in Canada recently? How was your experience? Are appointments available? How much time does it take to get your passport back?
Are you asked to sign a job offer before the H1B transfer process begins or is it usually after?
