Worth it to spend 40mins in the car vs 20 to fly your airline of choice with top tier? Or switch airlines and status match to the closer airline/airport? (1K on UA at EWR 40min vs Delta at LGA 20min)
So end of the year and I’ll be 4K short of United 1k status. Is it worth the approximately $1000 buy in to go over the top?
🐠fam, I am 8K pqm away from United 1K, however I am no longer traveling for work this year. also I can’t travel internationally atm. Is it worth paying 900$ and taking a trip to Hawaii to secure 1K?
See above for status match stream ^
Flying Qatar but don’t have a frequent flyer account there. Can I provide an American Airlines number and get miles there? Same alliance, different airline, but I’m seeing it as an option at check out
I need 2.5k United miles! Best way to get it?
I’ve already hit annual spend for AA gold but need about 7700 EQMs (only at 15 EQS so that won’t cut it). Based on research a $400 flight is least expensive way to hit Gold. Worthwhile?
Nothing reminds me why I only fly Delta like flying American. A serious and heartfelt apology to those of you who endure this regularly...
American Airlines loyalists: delta loyalist here; help me understand the upgrade system. As I understood it from gate agent: cont.
Has anyone experienced American Airlines cracking down on hidden city or skiplagged flights?? AKA making you pay the difference in ticket price for stopping at your destination rather than stopping at your “connection”
Dear American Airlines, Your extreme fear of slight weather amuses me. Surely you feel pathetic when your brethren airlines, even Southwest, are still operating while you scream “the sky is falling!!"
In other news: American Airlines pilot arrested just moments before take off for failing breathalyzer test at Reagan. #slowclapamerican
I loathe American Airlines. Old airplanes. Too tight connections. Rude AF desk staff. Incompetent flight attendants. 🤬
Just paid 26$ for priority boarding on American Airlines... Boarding pass still says I am boarding group 4?! Wtf? It also says priority... What does this give me? Can i do early boarding, security?
looking for suggestions for how to price standing up Diversity Consulting Services for startup consulting firm?
When you call UA to apply an RPU to a booking and what the rep actually does is put you on standby on a flight 10 hours earlier. WTF?!
Have a follow up call with a firm that put my offer on hold due to Covid, what are questions you would ask?
Anyone had an interview with PwC FDD recently? How long did you wait after the HR call for an interview?
Hey guys, since this is the first time this happens to me I need some advice. I'll most likely get laid off soon as the agency currently lost a few clients and already let go plenty of people (CONT)
We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
I wonder how the NBA and NFL will start to embrace more diversity and inclusion going forward. Any guesses?
￼ I got an offer today from a firm that’s fairly new and has about 13 attorneys. Only two of the attorneys are women, and they’re both quite a bit older. I don’t think the firm has a maternity leave policy. How do I find out? I’m a 26-year-old and want to start a family soon? But I don’t want them to know that quite yet.… Advice?
CMV: The era of traveling consultants is over. Yes, life will go back to normal and travel will be safe again, but not until enough time/experience has passed for consulting firms and clients to realize the weekly on-site travel is unnecessary. Limited travel will still exist and maybe more at senior levels. Regional/local travel will be the norm. Consulting will remain a popular career starter for exit opps and continued high pay, but not for travel/expense perks.
I was offered a Sc at Capco in NY. What is a reasonable salary? Anything I also should consider?
He thought he was off camera on a zoom call but he was not. He was caught being naughty in plain sight. https://nypost.com/2020/10/19/jeffrey-toobin-was-masturbating-in-front-of-new-yorker-bigs-report/
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.
Is anyone else having a hard time getting motivated to keep up with the rat race now that we're working from home? I'm in a promotion year and honestly I'm feeling so disconnected from everything that I can't bring myself to put in the work right now. Anyone else in the same boat?
Happy Friday again Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral, there is a huge push for EHs right now. I’ve had several friends join who have been thrilled with the first few months, and several referrals currently in the interview process. I’m more than happy to help: - Connect you to friends who’ve come in as experienced hires from Various consulting firms (big 4, S&, ATK, etc.) - Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep - Share interview tips
Career advice! Tech strategy at consultant level at Deloitte or tech strategy at a consultant at Accenture? The comp is pretty similar but I wouldn’t see a bonus or promotion cycle at Deloitte until 2022 and would see one at Accenture later this year
If you're in EY FSO advisory, do you have to be based out of NYC? Very interested in a position but don't want to be stuck in New York forever
