Being the noobie points chaser that I am, I booked flights to LGA (Delta) for a week in NJ instead of EWR (United) without having heard about the nightmare new traffic pattern. Is it really that bad?
W, St. Regis, or Las Alcobas in Mexico City? Also open to high-end boutique hotel recommendations...
Delta from LHR to ATL is delayed from 2:05pm to 6pm. Will they just give me €300/€600 (if it’s longer than 4 hrs) if I just ask for it, since it’s by EU law? Or do I have to go through hassles?
feeling sorry for the guy/girl who forgot their microsoft laptop/ tablet in an AA flight from DFW to ORD sitting in 16e. Turned it in just now. Hope you are in FB and you get it back.
Dumb q- will my status with AA carry over to JetBlue? I know you can now earn points with them
Anyone have any insight into the singles scene in FLL? Especially compared to NYC (love here). Never been thrilled with MIA based on my visits, and hoping FLL may be a bit more down to earth. 30s/M
Ethiad vs Emirates? Likely getting staffed in the Middle East. Have a binary option for flights from North America. Which is better, and which points program is easier to redeem?
Tips for getting more points on Delta?
What’s it like actually living in LA? From the Midwest and wanting to move to a bigger city (NYC, Bos etc) but the idea of LA entices me. Been as a visitor but curious as to actually living there TIA
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀
What’s big law like in San Francisco? Anyone have any insights to firm cultures or billable targets?
Is sharing recruiter email on compensation with Google recruiter breach of NDA ? How have others shown proof of offer to google recruiters in case of competing offer?
Looking for a pwc referral for two roles!
Are any top consulting firms hiring for experienced analysts currently? I know ACN and some others are cyclical for resources 2-3 years out of college, but I’m looking to make a move sooner than fall
Is there anyone else out there who keeps getting ghosted by agencies after interviewing for jobs? I've been applying to jobs for months. I've constantly been changing my approach and techniques. Yet I keep getting ghosted by agencies - sometimes even after I reach out asking for an update. I guess I just gotta assume that my acceptance email got lost and move on. 😂
Does anybody know what are the maternity benefits and policy at Accenture? How many weeks of paid parental leave and how many months you have to be with the firm to have access to those benefits? Thanks
Can anyone help me with a referral in Accenture Strategy? Is MBA mandatory or 4 YOE in Consulting domain works fine?
Who did the amex spots with the violinist and the people all shot from behind? That's not Ogilvy, is it?
I never fly American and am about to next weekend. They don't have an Economy plus option? They're trying to charge me $35 for a "preferred location" but not more legroom??
I’ve been grinding on a project that’s a technical mismatch for me for months. I’m a new hire and I got an average performance review(maybe a little below) I think it was the straw that broke the camels back. I feel so deflated and a lack of energy whenever work starts now. How should I go about initiating a roll off process? I was looking very forward to working at Deloitte and now dread going to work every day where I’m being asked to fire out deliverables I struggle with.
Recruiter said 6k relocation bonus - I have to spend $3k and can take the remaining balance. But after signing the letter she corrected herself and said I only get back 50% of the remaining balance. Is there anything I can do about this? The numbers and terms of relocation weren’t on the offer letter.
Which Big 4 has the best benefits?
Can someone give a time sense for an average prep time for CSCP certification versus CPIM? I think CPIM takes much longer but not sure
Looking to buy a portable laptop for myself. I’m a data engineer by profession and most of the time spend time on the company machine which is a pretty beefy windows laptop. But thinking of getting a MacBook Pro for myself. My personal machine is mainly used for pet projects, certification exams, online learning and rarely for consultation in academia seminars and freelance work (which is usually in the cloud). Mac is good but it’s a bit on the expensive end. What’s your personal machine?
I joined consulting before covid and really enjoyed the lifestyle (travel, events, socializing, afterworks). I’m young and it was a lot of fun. Now this lifestyle has been gone for two years and the only lifestyle is teams calls. I feel..bored? But bored is not the word. What do y’all do outside of work, during the week? My weekends are fun but my week is just work and teams calls… I’m 22 and I don’t wanna stay at home all day!!!! I wanna see the world
How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
hello my wise 🐟 I signed a retention bonus with a clawback last year, it expires in Q4 but I have a great opportunity that I’m excited about. If I leave and company pursuits the payback what does that typically look like? Lump sum due the day I turn in my keys? Payments over time? Trying to understand what to expect as part of considering new opportunities.
I feel im targeted due to my ethnicity .. When I raised my concern with HR I'm being threatened with PIP.. How do deal with it? I'm worried being fired.. Where as I been on my numbers for two years.....
