So my spg points and nights have still not merged with my Marriott account. Anyone else having this issue?
Do you think social work is a thankless job? Obviously your main goal in the job shouldn't be to gain acknowledgement, but is it wrong to feel discouraged after years of work to get not even a thank you from a client or from my boss? Just frustrated that I have to always be my own cheerleader.
Give me some hard questions/ demands. I’m being headhunted to a job that on the outside seems very tough/ impossible client. Tell me some hard arse things to ask for, some thoughts belie in the commen
I just got called for an interview next week. Yay! It’s at the school where I have been a para for several years and where I want to end up.
Any advice on how to dress and what to bring? Portfolio?
Guys, I have a stupid client. Like, really stupid. Nothing we explain (in any format) gets absorbed, her agency AND team is constantly trying to help her understand things without patronizing...
Anyone with large tattoos on your arm or tattoo sleeves? Do you wear them openly in the office? Concerned about what to wear at the holiday party!
I have 37 nights and 132k points with spg. This only gets me 2-3 nights in a city like DC Paris NYC booking through their site for a nice hotel. Any better way I should use these points?
What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.
I saw a survey that the #1 reason people are changing companies is culture. In interviews, 95% of people say they want a collaborative environment. Talk to each other.
My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.
I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?
I landed a new role a couple of months ago. I feel like I'm doing okay workwise, but I'm the only woman at my firm and the lack of real social connection is wearing on me. The men are nice enough, but I never feel like I'm actually part of the team or can connect with anyone there. Any advice?
Has anyone successfully negotiated a title? I was looking for Senior Manager positions but applied for some Mgr positions too. I’m up for promo next year at my current job as well. The current industry offer meets my comp expectation but planning to see if they would bring me in as a senior manager. There isn’t a set hierarchy for the team as of right now as they are building the team and I’d be reporting to a senior executive. Any talking points/tips that might help me negotiate?
I have an offer from service based and now a product based startup wants to give me an offer. How can I negotiate a good raise on the previous offer. They are trying to sell that u will learn a lot in short time and join at same package. How should I counter these points to get a good raise. YOE: 5yrs
I have a manager that does not seem to understand mental illnesses, disorders, etc. He thinks I am making excuses rather than trying to explain things (I have diagnosed ADHD, anxiety, and depression) and I’m trying to take ownership for issues but also help him understand what I am describing better as well. We are sitting down for a conversation later this week. Any advice on how to gently educate or help with his understanding of neurodivergence and other mental health considerations?
Okay account peeps, how do you handle a client who is not tech savvy, who is condescending on calls, tells you you are not being very helpful and to speak English when you use the word data?
I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?
Any thoughts on asking a hiring manager to speak to one of his/her employees without the manager being present to get a good feel for the culture?
Well, look where we got to...
Looking for a monthly parking pass around the fulton river west area (near the Jewel on Des Plaines). If anyone knows of a place that has availability or aren’t using their pass that I can rent, let me know!
I know it’s a risk to try to “time” the market. However, I have a quick question. Under the current market should I just wait if I could only afford around a 5% down payment in my area? Income-wise I’m good, just don’t have too much cash on hand currently. Would I be better off renting another year? (Despite paying hundreds more potentially) and saving up with my SO a juicy amount for down payment?
Has your employer asked you to relocate at the office location yet? If not, do you have a date from them? Or are you the lucky one to get permanent WFH?

Company approved me hiring my first (non-lawyer) direct report! Excited to cross this off my professional bucket list but I know hiring is the tip of the iceberg. What books, articles, general pro tips, etc. do you all recommend for "being a good boss" advice, esp. geared toward a first time boss?
Trip to France booked next week to Paris and Rivera. Fully vaxxed and boosted. How seriously should I take Level 4 Do Not Travel status? I’m fine to wear masks and test. Has anyone traveled to Europe recently? I’m not worried about any personal health risks, just travel issues.

I work for a great financial institution, and had previous experience going back to 2014. I feel as though I’ve hit my peak here at least in regard to what I can attain for the next 3-4 years in my current location. There are opportunities for advancement if I relocate to Florida or VA but those are pricey places to live. I’m 31 so picking up wouldn’t be so terrible if it means I can make more. Any tips regarding relocating? Should I just stay where I am, or go a different route altogether?Navy Federal Credit Union

I realized a slow pace at work is really bad for me. A couple years ago I was experiencing burn out from my fast paced job supporting transactions, and believed by moving to a slower job in a lower cost area, I would be sailing off to the sunset. Wrong, I spend weeks following up with other teams, often times they forgot what we discussed, so I spent 50% if the time reminding them of the topics and next steps. I spend most of my time writing memos no one will read.
