Have a strange situation with a job offer. A PE portfolio company made me an offer, but is insisting on deducting taxes in their HQ state. I live in a no income tax state and will travel (cont.)
It's 8 am EDT and I am already bored of the number of posts below talking about Marriott and SPG merger. HAPPY FRIDAY!
Looking for advice/validation. Currently have about 10 credit cards (yes really!) About half are airline cards that I signed up for for the miles, quicker boarding, and free bags- but they carry a $100 annual fee. Other half are random no-fee cards (BoA, Amazon chase, capital one venture, west elm). My thought is to cancel the ones w an annual fee (just bought a house so no immediate need for higher credit limit). Does this make sense?
Has anyone rented workout clothes at the Westin before? Thoughts on the quality/cleanliness?
I've received an interview for a position that seems interesting, but is in Singapore. How hard is it to navigate the visa situation there?
New (travel) project starting after a few weeks on the bench. So sad to leave my bf this morning :(
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Has anyone stamped their US H1B visa from Cananda (non- canadians) recentlt? Need to know about the process, any complications etc.
Do you guys usually do mobile check in on the bonvoy app when on vacation? Is there a better chance of getting upgraded when you check in in person?
About 3 stays away this year from making SPG platinum. Can get there by spending 12-15k on low category hotels over coming month. Worth it?

Q for consultant moms. How did you navigate your career post maternity leave/after the 1 year local project limit? Are projects more flexible with travel for mothers? Can any traveling moms comment?
Best alternative to Hilton loyalty? And will they match my status? Getting fed up with Hilton's poor customer service.
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Working remote and booked meetings with myself from 3 to 5 to watch the game. Come on United!!

Thoughts on the DHP (digital health plan) practice within Deloitte? Going through interview stages now. Any other practice areas I should be open to instead within HC?
Confession: I wish there were more minorities working at the firms and clients. I am so sick and tired of acting all “corporate” and feeling like everything just has to be serious all the time. I have worked with minorities in other jobs before and it is always so much more of a collective culture as opposed to an individualistic culture (speaking purely from my own personal experiences and anecdotes).
