Philly downtown Marriott is lit
Desi junta - with the real estate market being crazy would you guys still rent or buy(visa uncertainty toh forever hai hi)? But with houses priced 20% or so more than last year and people paying over asking not sure what everyone is doing. Would appreciate some guidance and insights on your thought process
Can someone tell me what the human capital group at Accenture is like? Culture, opportunities, travel etc. Also - what are the levels like please and thank you in advance!
General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?
With Hilton now. Should I switch to SPG or Marriot? Do it before or after the official merger?
Qn about SPG platinum breakfast amenity - is it valid only once during the stay or for each day? I'm told I can use it only once during the stay 🤷🏻♂️
How are you all using your amex airline credit
I am on an L1A, on a visa with 3 years left, and am currently in the US. Does this section mean I can leave (for example to visit family) and come back?
Any recommendations for Marriott properties in Caribbean or Central America to spend points for the family vacation? May. Everything seems to be blacked out.
Overnight flight delay on American due to defect. I paid 300 for a hotel room expecting American to reimburse. They are offering 20k, 200 voucher, & $120 check. AA is refusing to reimburse full 300.
I'm racking up a backlog of points that I'm not spending, SPG, Marriott, Amex, Chase(SR), AA and Dellta. What's the best way to keep track of them all and manage for best redemption?
Hi Folks!!! I’m trying to get my parents to apply for their tourist visa. They have applied twice before and got denied (it’s been over two years since their application). Are there any tips on making sure their application is not rejected this time around? Also, does anyone know if US has started issuing tourist visas?
Dilemma - To travel or not to travel. That is the question. Delta surge. Is it a good time to look for remote or 50% travel opportunities? What’s your take?
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
Any Lagos agency folks? (Or F1 visa experts) Been trying to help a young Nigerian friend find a new US school after he lost his scholarship. (Cont.)
Has anyone recently gotten their H1B visa stamping done in Mumbai using Dropbox. If yes, what was the processing time and the overall experience? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Best Mexico spg properties, with suite upgrade?
Changin Delta flight to tonight. No point in even going to the airport if you have not left home yet!
Is the SM role like a junior partner at B4?
Anyone interviewed with S&O at DoorDash? Got an interview for a senior associate role. They asked me to do a take home exercise which takes 4-5 hrs to complete. Worth the time? What’s the pay range look like? 5 YOE in ops consulting.
Anyone else freaking out about Delta? My baby is 6 months and starts daycare on Monday. I feel like I’m sending my kid into harms way (I can’t afford a nanny).
Is Herman Miller really worth $1k? Trying to justify it to myself… WFH all day every day so think a nice chair would be cool, but having trouble stomaching the cost
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
Thinking of either Belize or Costa Rica late fall this year. Any recommendations? In particular would like to hear about Marriott hotels and off-property excisions in both countries. Thanks!
I’ve often heard of people with mental health issues struggling with personal hygiene. Has anyone done the opposite of that? I shower up to 2 hours a day (2-4 showers), and am obsessive with oral hygiene. Kind of like washing away my feelings of guilt....
In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?
How long does the honeymoon last in Big Law for new associates? When does one start to get brutalized (aka “experience the culture”)?
Thanks for doing this! Last year it was announced we would see a market correction in salary vs. the other big 4. What we got was underwhelming to say the least. What was the rationale behind this?
How much did you spend per person on holiday gifts this year? Curious what most people are doing. Talking to friends I feel cheap. Although I’m a proud miser and don’t care, I’m just curious.
$75k + $10k bonus for senior financial analyst role in NYC - should I take it? It seems a hell of a lot better than my $60k role in audit. Currently an A2.
Going to one of HSW. If I decide to stay in consulting (potentially long term), is it worth forgoing a B4 sponsorship to try for MBB?
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty
Anyone ever decide that, after 5 or more years of practice, they fucking hate their state and city, and decide to uproot and take the bar in a different state? Tell me your story
Booz folks, how is your health insurance?
Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
