You can do a conversion from UR points to SPG points. 3 UR = 3 Marriott = 1 SPG point. So you're getting double value with Amex, just far less flexibility. There's also the Points Guys valuation, which would say CSR is more "value" per dollar

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.

I have an opportunity to move from strategy to creative, if someone out here has any experience with this I would love to talk with you! Context - I’ve been an illustrator freelance on the side for about 10 years, our CD found my work, gave me a chance to work on illustrations for a campaign, and he (and the client) loved it. He wants to help train me and turn my role into a creative one! Super excited about it but also really intimidated by the idea 😬

Have an offer that pays ~$350-450k a year, but is very bonus heavy and about 25% of that or more will be restricted stock and options. Making ~$350k now all cash. And the way it’s structured, in the first year I’ll end up being ~$50k short for the year of where I would be if I stayed. Also requires a big move to a location I’m not too keen on. WLB is better, probably 50 hours a week but need to be plugged in 100% of the time. Any considerations I haven’t really thought about? What should I ask?
