If you travel for work weekly and can expense hotel bills on this card, absolutely. For everybody else, meh.

It’s ok for a mid-tier card, but that MSR is too high for the return imo

To add to the context: I have CSR

I’d much rather have 3 UR points than 6 Marriott ones

Hi, I work as a Embedded Software Engineer 4. I have 14 years of experience. I work in Central Jersey (Not NYC).

What is a fair compensation in NJ? My base is currently 134k plus around 20k in bonus plus 7% 401k match. TC around ~160k.
Work life balance is good, WFH 2 days.

Few years ago, I moved from NYC and my base was higher. but in NJ, I had to take a pay cut bec I started family.

I see everywhere 250-350K compensations in NYC, but wondering if NJ is comparable and do I make too low?

How do you all handle non-billable work on top of meeting your billable targets (assuming no minimum requirement and bonus threshold not an issue)? I.e. If you have two hours of non-billable work to do (but it’s work that can be added to your time sheet like business development) do you still bill ~8 hours of billable work on top of that for a total of 10hrs on your sheet?
