if you don't already have the platinum and you love food and you have a corporate card, it's free food. and free airline incidentals until 2022. so in some cases it is.

Nope

I'd say not worth. The perks aren't as good as the Amex Platinum and point accruing likely wouldn't be as good at the Amex Blue Business Plus. The Amex Gold was one of the last cards I got in the Amex suite for those reasons. And I pretty much just got it for the sign on bonus

Nope

Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?

Something that bothered me, but I never really felt like I should ask -- why are salaries not rounded off? Or maybe they are for other people? In my entire career, my base salary had no zeroes at the end (i.e., instead of something like $12,000.00, it was something like $12,345.67). I'm not sure why -- does anyone have an explanation for this? Doesn't seem to make sense.
