Screw you Virgin America at SFO for delaying me by 4 hours, but thank you for the $500 travel voucher 🤠
If I fly a jetblue flight that is Jetblue ticketed, can I still use my AA Number? And would I get the same MQM and MQD than if I had booked a AA ticketed (jetblue operated) flight? This is for Mint class for reference
Increasing the model to “135,000 Covid-19 deaths in the United States, an increase that one of its researchers tied to relaxed social distancing and increased mobility.” Shocker.
For those traveling through CLT Thursday night, what are your plans? Rebook to earlier flight or just hope Florence doesn’t impact your regular flight?
ACNfolks- rookie travel q- if I'm a no show for a flight a. Can I use that "unused" ticket for my next flight? B. Do I have to pay the penalty?
As an Indian visa worker in US, I feel Indian managers in ZS are very rude to me , one makes me work longer hours than white team members , never lets me present in workshops , and always criticizes. Last week I made a mistake in a internal report and he said that if I did that again he will book my flight to India. I have never faced this challenge with white managers. Is this a ZS thing or across all firms, I wish to leave because this treatment makes me feel like a lesser person
I don’t know if this is true or not, but I hope to see a day where everyone stays seated and not jump into the aisle as soon as the flight gets to gate. Wait seated to exit. A man can dream! 🤞🏼
Lyft vs uber for rewards? Company politics removed, which has a better rewards system? Flying United not delta FYI and have enjoyed the $5 uber cash every 500 points
For any AA platinum members - is it worth it? Flying from DCA to ORD. Thinking about the status challenge but $500 for plat challenge + plat now is steep. Sick of united silver.

Anyone have info on MBB/Strategy& supply chain consulting? Group size, actively hiring, common backgrounds (MBA/certifications required/helpful?), project types, & interview prep tips? Looking to enter as an experienced hire. Currently a procurement financial analyst and just passed my CSCP certification. Ex-big4. Thanks!
New consultant here - when people talk about Strategy & Operations, what exactly is the operations side and what do they do? Coming from the perspective of the B4 firms having the more prestigious S&O group, but also having a separate supply chain/operations group? What’s the difference between the two ops groups?
New auditor here, I see most auditors get booked for 10- 12 hours on engagements during busy season. But heard everyone’s working 65 hours to 100 hours a week during that time. Does that mean almost everyone is eating their hours in big four and midsize firms ? If you’re assigned for 12 hours daily, Monday to Friday, but actually working 15 hours and weekends, do you book 12 hours Monday to Friday ? Or the actual hours you worked including weekends ?
Looking 2 move into industry but most stats on this forum are 4 USD. Directors/partners in the US make 300K-1M - ones here probably make 200K-500K. What salary range is good for senior industry roles.
Has your company or agency taken steps to promote diversify in hiring? It seems that all the major agencies made posts or had racial sensitivity training but the momentum behind BLM has died down and so has the push for inclusion.
Am I a shitty friend? Backing out of friend’s bachelorette trip next month because it is a flight and house with 10ppl. Plus restaurants and bars... I feel bad, but COVID?!
Anyone ever put off using PTO days and instead “worked from home” during a planned vacation before they resigned in order to cash out the PTO later? I really don’t want to carry my work laptop when I leave on vacation, but the idea of cashing out the PTO when I end up leaving the job (not yet planned or official) is real nice.

I want an MBA, but I have way too much debt from doing an out of state undergrad program and I know scholarships are great but unless it’s close to a full ride I don’t think it’d be enough for me. I’m the trailblazer in my family so I really just have myself to rely on. I’d like to hear￼ about everyone’s experiences with (or plans for) funding their MBA. Please also include any amount of debt you currently carry from undergrad + the cost and length of your MBA program.
Looking for UX/UI freelancers! There is a specific project in mind and others throughout the year. Based in nyc, open to remote if you can be available for at least some East Coast business hours
Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours
BCG or MBB folks, got a call from the recruiter today that the outcome of decision round and calibration call today was positive and the lead partner will give me a call on Monday to discuss with me on the role and offer directly by himself. Trying to get some inside from the HR but she just asked me to wait and hear from the partner, sounds a bit weird and surprise to me as normally this state was usually with the HR. Anyone experienced this before? Was this really a good sign? @BCG Digital
HR question: I told my firm that I would graduate from grad school Dec 2020 after my internship ends in August. However, I found out I can actually graduate in August, and have considered moving..
