Will be short 125K miles for Delta Diamond Medallion. Should I do a mileage run this weekend?
Delta help: Why am I getting half the MQMs the last 2 weeks than I have been getting every other round trip? 1,600 round trip the last 2, 3,635 the 5 trips before.
LAX-ORD redeye: FA empties wine bottle into my cup halfway through the flight. Me: "...that all me?" FA: "yup, that's all you" #noregrets #itsokimstillonvacation
Thank you and enjoy your flight!
I joined consulting before covid and really enjoyed the lifestyle (travel, events, socializing, afterworks). I’m young and it was a lot of fun. Now this lifestyle has been gone for two years and the only lifestyle is teams calls. I feel..bored? But bored is not the word. What do y’all do outside of work, during the week? My weekends are fun but my week is just work and teams calls… I’m 22 and I don’t wanna stay at home all day!!!! I wanna see the world
Trying to buy a house. Didnt prequalify for mortgage loan from chase - their credit score requirements have become stringent because of covid. Mine is 680. They need 700 min. Any other banks that might have more lax reqs? Any experiences folks can share?
DC to NYC travel. Train or flight?

What is the best platform to buy crypto? Only interested in the big guys (BTC, ETH, etc.) Have been hearing Coinbase Pro. Any downside of that? I also heard crypto.com because they allow credit card purchases. Any advice? Brand new to crypto investing. Plan to buy & hold rather than trade. Thanks!
I was up for a June promotion and now am doing the work sans title due to COVID-19 - now with no promised promotion after 2 years as an AAE. Thoughts? Do I find another job elsewhere, or stick it out?
Under normal circumstances (I.e. pre Covid), is it much harder to get sponsored for actually academic courses like MA or MPhil as opposed to MBAs? People might say those are not as relevant as MBAs to business, but MBAs don’t strike me as anything particularly vocational either.
It’s too early in the a.m for Delta to be giving me decisions to make.. like whether I want to take $800 to get on the next flight (that’s in 5 hours time) - 5am
Anyone done the Kellogg video essays yet? Is the COVID question still the same from the 2020 cycle? Would also appreciate any general advice you have for them

How do you deal with the guilt over travel? I’m getting ready to go on another shoot and dreading being away from my 5yo. I try to tell myself it’s really good for her relationship with her dad...
Started working a week after graduating last May. Was on track to be one of the top staff performers and then COVID hit. Since working from home I am one of the lowest performers. Anxiety and stress are crippling my ability to succeed. I have social anxiety which makes wfh communication extremely difficult. Managers - how much patience would you have with someone who was doing well pre-pandemic but has been struggling ever since? Should I start planning for a new job? (In case I get fired)
Seeing as it's Sunday..how do you spend your pre travel day evenings? Hate that I can't enjoy my full weekend during the summer. Laundry and cleaning the house now. 😔
INSEAD candidate here, thinking about the exchange program with Wharton. Anyone here currently on campus? I'd love to know how much classes and activities are still being impacted by Covid.
When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
401k? Easy to take money out?

Posting for my cousin - Deloitte 🐠 can anyone share their timeline from offer to h1b transfer? She is looking to take 2 weeks between job but not sure if it’s an issue. TIA!
Anyone move from big4 transaction service into corporate strategy / corp dev role? Looking for past experiences - what to do, what not to do, where to look other than job boards, etc. Currently Senior Manager and have a strong interest in tech/Fintech. 🙏

Hi all, my H1B got approved today and I am waiting on the actual physical notice. In parallel I have a L2 EAD extension request in process. My H1B is valid from oct 1 only. Can I withdraw my L2 tomorrow? Is it okie if I am out of status for nine days? I am worried that the L2 will get approved. If it does get approved, what do I do?
Just had a client FaceTime me to present because her Skype wasn’t working...that’s a new one.
Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
Hello All. I am a recent licensed attorney in NY and AZ. A former judge from Albania. I hold a JD from ASU. Unfortunately, being only focused on trademark associate positions, I have not landed my first year associate job. Actually working in house as a trademark paralegal. Do you remember how did you get your first job as a trademark attorney? Where is a good place I should send my resume in AZ, NY, or for remote? New in the States and I do not have such network! Thanks
