I was told that you have to book through SPG to get eligible nights for the SPG challenge. Is this true? I was hoping to use my business travel. Has anyone completed the challenge?
Need help deciding which is more valuable: 60k bonvoy points outright or converting to 25k AA miles. Even tho I plan to stay in AirBnBs in upcoming vacations, I don’t want to sacrifice value
How do we use the 35K point Marriott vouchers from the 2 free night promotion? I tried booking a vacation stay and Marriott took the 70K points directly from my account instead of using the voucher.
When AA cancels your flight 23 minutes before takeoff and both you and the partner are just like 🙄🙄
Anyone know much about routers? My father in Leander has an incredibly fast Asus router, but his home is 7,000 sq ft and the signal completely dies when you go up the stairs to their mother in law suite where their tv is. Extenders don’t work well either. I suggested doing four Google mesh points but he wants to see if he can figure out with his current router. Anyone know how to set up an AiMesh router with Asus?
Question for Deloitte H1b folks - are we allowed to take LOA on our visa? What are the procedures? Thanks in advance.

Trying to do a ski ⛷ trip in (Breckenridge? Colorado) with ~9 other people in December for 30th 👴🏻 birthday, rent out a House/chalet. Is this a good idea? Any recommendations on locations? Is a hotel better? Thinking for a week!

It’s times when I get a long list of review points that I need to remind myself that it’s okay and I’ve only been in public accounting for less than two years.
I have a GRE from a few years ago equivalent to a 750 GMAT. Quant is the only section where I lost points. At this point, is it worth attempting a marginally higher score on the GMAT, esp quant?
We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
Trying to take parents to somewhere in the Caribbean/beach type place in September. Any suggestions for locations to best utilize status and points?

TAP airlines - need to verify credit card before checking in (also before return even when on one ticket). Is a credit card some sort of magic in Portugal?
Has anyone left for a local firm and bounced back to top 10/big 4 or top 10? I've been interested in working at a local firm for some time, have an opportunity, but want the opportunity to get back to something larger if I learn I hate it.
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
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 😀
Anyone have experience with being laid off after coming back from maternity leave? My family member recently did and we have email documentation that it’s related to her maternity leave...
Rant: apply for job online. Job emails me with 7 questions as "next steps", one of which is salary. I email back. They email back (at 9pm mind you) "we can't meet your salary expectations"...
Friends with smaller classrooms and 25 + students, can you send pics or give some suggestions of your favorite desk layouts? I need new ideas please! (Don’t be fooled by the picture, it’s much smaller than it seems).
Other than Big 4 and probably RSM/BDO/Grant Thornton, which public accounting companies are open to transfer H1-B visa? I am in Tax.
Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
I’ve had one interview at a company setup through a recruiter. The first interview the hiring manager said that they were posting the job on their website that day to ‘cast a wider net to get the best talent’. Immediately after the interview he told the recruiter he wanted to bring me onsite in 2 weeks. So I’m in the final round tomorrow, but now today two other recruiters contacted me about what seemed to be this job. Cont..
Do your parent know what you make?
Anyone have experience moving from a mid-tier firm to B4? What big differences have you found in work load and stress level if any? Is the switch really worth it. Currently A2 and on track to S1.
I know this has been posted before but I just need support. I’ve been back from mat leave for two months. I don’t like my job, my motivation to work is gone. I just think I hate this work. I am interviewing at other jobs but nothing is happening. I used to have so much drive to do well - even if I hated a project. Now I’m doing the minimum to just get by. I feel I need to be inspired work wise (hence, looking for a new job), but just kinda depressed and aimless.
So I’m the only female, aside from a rarely-present senior manager, in an audit room for a 9/30 busy season client. Over the past two weeks I’ve heard no less than five sexist comments,
What would be a better exit, Accenture Strategy manager or IQVIA strategy Associate Principal? About the same total comp.
