One basic question on long term travel. The income is shown as my income plus whatever I spent as part of deloitte due to travel. Due to this I'll fall in higher tax bracket. So will deloitte pay for that additional tax that Ill end up paying on my actual salary due to higher bracket taxes?

Is it worth having a travel industry CC (ie Marriott)? I used to travel all the time for work but won’t be anymore and don’t plan to in the future so I’m not going to accumulating hotel points but don’t have enough for 100% free stays and want to start booking some trips in the near future. I currently only have CSR and CF.
I have a Delta flights booked on December 31 and January 1 on the same itinerary. Will the MQDs MQMs and MQSs count towards 2018 or 2019?
On the bench, suggestions for where to travel?

Hey 🐠. Looking to go to Disney World in Orlando w wifey and two kids (3 and 1 yr old). Would like to know what hotel you recommend to use points on (Starwood or Marriott). Thanks.
I woke up went to the hotel window and opens the shutter doors to get some light in when there were people cleaning the windows. I sleep naked, but that's okay - happy fly day!!!

🤢 Sorry but I do don’t miss leaving my family at the crack of dawn, spending all my time crammed into a client conference room, forced fun team dinners, and leaving exhausted and anxious on Thursday.

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say

Hello... I have cleared three rounds of interview and my recruiter said I am still in contention for the Job position at Deloitte. However, I don’t see things going progress since 2 months. My last round of interview was on 10th April. But since then the only email which got was that I am in contention but no updates. I’m not sure what exactly the process would be! I don’t know when will they even do my background check... I don’t want to miss an opportunity with Deloitte.
I’ve done several representations for purchasers just to make sure they are adequately represented and working with their realtor. Recently had a potential client reach out to be their personal representative of a large home purchase (foreign individual) without a realtor. Is there an industry standard fee? I was leaning 1-2% of purchase price.
