Has anyone had to cancel a reservation made with points post-June/whenever it kinda became clear travel was a no go? Had an international trip initially planned in March booked with points, rescheduled to October, obviously will have to cancel. Have people been successful in getting point refunds?
I currently have the Chase sapphire preferred and Hyatt credit cards. I mainly use the Hyatt just for its perks when I stay there and transfer my chase points to Hyatt since that is the hotel I am loyal to. I typical save my points for hotels as Hyatt has fantastic redemption. I am thinking of adding the Amex gold to the mix. Thoughts on that combo?
Is there a U.S Customs & Border Patrol near Niagara falls? (like near south padre island). Checking as CBP check points have been known to add delays/cause immigration issues as they can’t verify easily with USCIS.

Anyone scout any good long haul flight deals out of NYC this month? Messed up my points and will be 5k short of Star Alliance gold. Willing to go most places and have the time.

I have zero knowledge in French. I have a CRS score of 467 (Scored CLB 10 in English, masters, age:32). But given current draws are happening at 500+, losing hope by the day.

At some points, I feel I am becoming a problem magnet 🧲. Anything I touch or get involved in, tun into a nightmare despite doing my best not to screw up. I was a top performer a few months ago, and now I am a team blocker. I feel it so hard to disappoint people around me whom I respect a lot. Helpless 😞😞😞
Hi any recs for cooking schools / courses in LA? Looking to give to fiancé as a Christmas gift. Bonus points if it’s done at a cool restaurant or school!
I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?
Anyone else got the Coinbase debit card? Do they have an algorithm to avoid the number 4’s and generate alot of 8’s because my name is Chinese? This is pretty fracking awesome if this is the case. I know Chase bank also promotes the generation of number 8’s and suppresses the number 4’s for bank accounts opened in branches in Chinese communities too.

Salam North Carolina family! Just wanted to let you know that there are some really strong Muslim and pro-Muslim / pro- Palestine candidates running in our state. Let’s do our best to vote and make our voices heard InshaAllah! AIPAC (Pro-Israeli lobbying group) just spent a lot of money and launched ads against Nida Allam (first hijabi and Muslim elected to public office in NC) and Erica Smith. We also have people like Belal Elrahal running for judge in Mcklenberg county (where Charlotte is).

Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes

Going from audit to advisory to a competitive firm after 1 year of audit. However, start date is not until Jan 10 at new firm. When do I put in my 2 weeks given the holiday break and busy season beginning? Note: I’m not looking for a “take three weeks off as a mental break” type solution. My wife is still in grad school, so I’m the only earner and we will have lots of loans soon. so even missing 2-3 weeks of pay is missing out on a big opportunity of loan pay down.

Anyone else feel like they’re an average performer on a team of high performers, but because of that your review will be lower? Worried because I’m getting through the work timely but just feel like there’s always something I’m being asked to do better. Also worried for upcoming promo to senior, if they’ll say I’m not ready by their standards, but someone else’s standards could be completely different.

You should ask someone to show you how to zoom in. It's quite easy and eliminates the need to leave nasty RNs
Honestly managers like this just piss me off. Creating work for others with no value add
Are you excel illiterate? Just change the font you sour puss
No way, zooming in sounds like too much effort. It’s easier to leave voluminous and harsh review points.
It can be worse. I had a client give me bank recs in Comic Sans
While yes, you could zoom in, I’m with you that it could lead me to be more critical. If the person has a sloppy looking work paper, it means that it is difficult to review/follow and could indicate that the content is actually sloppily/lazily prepared thus leading to a reviewer being more critical. Essentially, it shows a lack of care to basic preparation.
Not just font size but overall formatting. If it’s sloppy, I assume the actual work is sloppy. 😬
To be fair, if it’s a WP with 20 tabs...
