(Likely misplaced) brand loyalty: when you consider passing up the Four Seasons and JW Marriott to stay at a Westin on the company dime.

Your SPG status is recognized at JW so I don't understand this post

@K1's got it about right -- already requalified for plat but want to make sure I get the 75-night extra 4th point since my current project doesn't travel frequently.

If you're in Atlanta, you should be slapped... that JW is waay better

I would stay at an aloft before I stay at a four seasons, they have no loyalty program at all

I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
