I just had dinner with a friend who normally travels every week for work and I asked her about points (as I do) and she isn't signed up for any programs. 7 months of points, credit card rewards, lost.

similar story, friend who works as an international product manager travels to europe from west coast every other month or so... in biz class... she’s like “ya people at work are telling me i need a different credit card and to book a certain way and because i didn’t, i didn’t get all the miles or something?”

i was like “haha yeah, gotta play the game,” but in my head i’m like “wow you could’ve been premier 1k you idiot smh”

I think they may be able to get points retroactively. There’s hope.

Have you ever not attended a wedding because you disagree with the couple's life choices/direction? Good friends of ours are getting married in a few weeks and my husband doesn't want to attend. We've been friends w them for almost 10 years, but have drifted recently bc they are still partying way harder than us. We all met in nightlife, but my husband and I are basically sober at this point, while they still drink and do hard drugs every weekend.

Nonetheless, I still think they're good people

Partners, Principals, and Directors- how did you network effectively as you moved up in your firms? Seems like rubbing a lot of elbows is required to make friends that will vouch for you. Personally find it difficult at networking events because I don't drink, and though I have a ton of friends that do and am personally comfortable around folks that get loose, they seem to be the ones that are a bit more closed off for a number of reasons that I can understand. If you don't drink, did you experience these challenges? And whether you do or don't, what tips do you have on building those real, lasting relationships? Always feels like I have to work down their guard and that just takes so much more work than I feel others don't have to do

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.
