I have Amex gold card, and want to better understand how to best leverage my card points as well as hotel points for hotel stays. Should I convert my Amex points to Marriott points?

Hi everybody ! I’ve been working in Dubai for the past 6 months as a Marketing Manager in a Web 3 firm. Coming back to the US due to visa status, I’m looking for a similar position in the Crypto Industry. Due to the very technical nature of the industry and market sentiment, there are only software engineers being hired and no marketing :/ any recommendations to go into those technical Industries as a marketer ?

I took my mom on a $10,000 vacation to Greece this weekend because I’m 35 and single. She’s calling it the best honeymoon with her son she’s ever had. We stayed in a thousand dollar per night suite in Santorini with two rooms and a private pool. It was a surprise and she cried when she saw the room (she is a teacher and never does anything like this). I’m a loser but honestly have never had so much fun.

Hi Fishes
I have a offer with a firm consulting firm, looks like it has a very poor wlb and I have only 12 days left in notice period I was waiting on Infosys but somehow got rejected in that, I'm looking for jobs in MNC and that would have 5 days working,and 2 day weekends mandatory off. I have worked more than 15+ hour everyday in current job no weekends which makes me think another 15+ hours everyday with lot of travel might affect me and relations with many close ones.
Advise me please.

Are other companies' big data systems as bad as Amex's?


Amex is the only company I've been with so I want to know from others how it's like in other companies. Hive is so slow. Yellowbrick is fast but not all cornerstone data is there and is practically useless for my team's use case. MLS crashes so often. Ask Aida support is so sloppy and they just regurgitate the same information over and over again. Is this an Amex thing or is this just how big data works everywhere?
