Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
which one of you going off on travel day...

Happy Saturday :) Anyone at MBB willing to look through my resume and potentially help me understand what skills im lacking? Current international student that has had no luck with getting interviews through campus recruitment and I don't completely understand what's going on.

Any good books on how to be liked or get along with others? Looking back in my career, I’ve always had friction my manager and disliked by more than one coworker. It very may well be me and I want to change. I think I have issues with authority and grew up as an only child, if that’s relevant. 30’s F
FDD or restructuring at the big4? Which would be better in terms of exit ops amd future comp?
If I moved from EY Business Consulting to AlixPartners Enterprise Improvement would my exit opportunities 5+ down the road be much different? AlixPartners is appealing because of the smaller firm feel, more focused line of work, and substantially better pay. I am being siloed into a work stream I don’t care for at EY and pay raises/bonuses have been below par compared to what I am hearing from contacts at other firms.

Hi Fishes, What should be ideal package for a 3 yr experienced professional in AWS Cloud /Devops Role Nowadays freshers are being offered more package than experienced ones. Seems like we are underpaid Kindly suggest
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
