SPG for Hoteling, airline depends on location

Airline: the one with the greatest market share or hub at your home airport. It maximizes your nonstop options. If that’s somewhere like LAX or Chicago O’Hare which support hubs for both American and United, the tiebreak should come down to which partner airlines are most useful for mileage redemption plus who has the best flight schedules to where you think you’ll be flying the most. Hotels: the best points program nowadays is likely Hyatt, however they have far, far less properties than Marriott and Hilton. I’ve earned lifetime titanium status at Marriott in part because 95%+ of the time they had a property near my clients and we had a corporate rate there. I therefore have to recommend you focus on Marriott or Hilton. If you stay primarily in city centers. Hyatt can be viable but 2/3 of my client locations are in suburbs and everyone stays close by. However, check with your first project team - you’ll likely be sharing rental cars and most folks will be in the same or a few. Darby hotels. That said, sign up for all the programs. But to maximize benefits, you’ll work out which you wind up focusing on.

Airline is dependant on what airport you're based out of. I'm ATL based so Delta is a no brainer (also think it's the best experience). Hotelwise, you really have 2 options - Marriott or hilton - since Marriott and spg merged. Marriott has the most properties and is the chain I've been using since I was an intern pre merger. But other factors can be considered I.e. if you're interested in luxury brands, do you prefer Ritz Carlton (marriott) or do you prefer Waldorf Astoria (Hilton) etc...

Marriott and United for me. Airline depends on home airport - pick one of the majors (AA, Delta, United) and stick with it

American Airlines and SPG (Marriott)

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
