Is it sad that the highlight of my career so far was traveling international (first class flight, food, etc) and I’m a senior manager 🥲

Depending on your practice sometimes you have to take the small wins where they come. Who did you fly?

The highlight of my career at SAP was my first and only trip to Germany. It’s been a shitshow since. Have learned absolutely nothing here and am struggling to get out

Not sad at all. Wouldn’t mind getting there one day myself.

...whereas other Senior Managers in your organization.....?

Nice. I’ve never been able to snag higher than biz class. I hope that 1st Class was memorable. I save my points and fly first for personal trips!

So give opps for cooler highlight to your team members by praising their works

Also one of the highlights of mine! Although once you realize how good it can be, it's very hard not to fly first class everywhere...

It’s consulting. Very few people have real accomplishments. I wouldn’t mind some international travel in J.

Does the plane fly faster in 1st class ?

Flying first class for the first time was one of the highlights of my life at the time period, I feel you. No shade no shame.

You are surviving your SM. That should be the highlight.
