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?
So is it weird when family/friends automatically think they can use your points or even your home while you’re away at work. I find it very annoying. Like it’s my f-ing house.
Anyone successfully book multiple rooms with points? Perhaps even at a discounted point rate? (I.e thing booking rooms over a weekend for wedding guests) Random thought.
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
Y'all... my student was attempting to do his work with this ✏️ he didn't want to get points off for being unprepared. Bless my babies 🤭🥰 I love them so much!
I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?

Considering a mini pivot from growth/performance marketing to a product marketing role and hoping for a gut check from those who have done both. I'm trying to move away from the transactional culture of growth marketing, which feels like a numbers game. I'm also intrigued by product management and user research, but not ready to invest in that bigger leap, so product marketing seems like a half-step to get more exposure to those teams. Am I on the right track here? Any advice on the transition?
I haven’t involved my mom in wedding planning much because she stresses me out. But today, I took her to my dress alterations appointment and she left pissed because I didn’t let her take pictures. She said I wasn’t creating the sweet mother daughter experience she had hoped for but that’s just not me. I even bought the dress by myself in the first place. Anyone else struggling with pleasing their mothers during wedding planning while staying sane?
How do you find women mentors when there aren’t any senior ones at your office? I see great benefits in having a professional mentor and wish I had one to learn from and ask advice to. I’ve looked at organizations that connect industry professionals, but don’t know how well these work.
My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there. Now the company is saying they may have some other work for her to do for a few months and they could extend her contract if interested. If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?

What would you all realistically expect for comp in corporate strategy at 8 YOE, 5 years MBB (analyst and manager) and 3 years Corporate Strategy? I have a feeling I’m a bit underpaid and going to try to have a discussion with my boss. I’m in a non-tech industry and haven’t really tested the market at all since I left consulting.
