Marriott or SPG? No one gives af about Hilton!
Travel in sweat pants and then try checking into your hotel...where you are told that you have no reservation for the week and they are fully booked. Happy Monday!
First time on SPG Crossover with Delta. Upgraded from Comfort+ (paid) to 1st without status!
Are airlines doing food/beverage service right now? I have delta and American flights coming up. (FYI - More so curious about the alcohol part of the beverage service.) TIA
Three hour delayed flight with perfect weather all along the coast and not even the flight attendants have been told why.. I swear sometimes the airlines just like fucking with people
Ladies, any interest in starting a plus size bowl? Discuss any and all topics related to live your best big beautiful life. Clothing, travel, work, fitness, whatever? It there's interest I'll start one (invite our consulting friends also). Do we invite dudes?
How do you know if your delta flight has been canceled AGAIN? I changed my flight already due to weather cancellation. Just want to confirm my new flight is not canceled.
How does everyone feel about people that "earn" their status through credit card spending? Came up in conversation about points with a family friend last weekend
How are you guys doing arranged marriage? Male here. My parents are looking for a match in India. It doesn’t make sense to me. I am a consultant. My job requires me to travel 4 days in a week. How...
I’m sooo sick of Marriott from the Bonvoy situation. Anybody have luck transferring to Hilton or Hyatt, getting status match?
People on here always bragging about their one night stand and I'm just over here like, "I've got two night stands on either side of this Marriott king size bed."
Anyone willing to trade Hilton points for Marriott points? Want to extend my stay on a study for this weekend (rolling off Fri so no LFO) but they only have a Hilton here...
Recommendations for workout during pregnancy that is travel friendly? Any recommendations for online/youtube yoga classes for example? Thanks!
Delta lied about flight being cancelled due to weather when the gate agent said the incoming plane had mechanical issues. They rebooked me on a 8 hour connecting tomorrow from 9 AM to 5 PM how is...
Did anyone's brains just stop working while pregnant? I'm 13 weeks and can only manage to work half days. I'll sit at my computer for 12 hours and bill only 3-4 hours instead of my standard 8-10. I have work to do, but zero motivation or availability to focus unless there's a looming deadline. Does this phase pass? Did this happen to anyone else?
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
How about a salary survey?
I'm have a conversation with someone from deloitte next week. Anyone willing to give me insight to the culture?
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
Starting all over again! All of my life I have been fighting my weight. I lose 20, gain 30. Lose 30, gain 40. So, I am starting again. I have my meal plan in place, started walking again, and scheduled a nutritionist for next week. Hoping against hope that this is the final time I have to learn this lesson.
Is it fair to ask for the sign-up bonus or extra equity in lieu of the 2021 bonus ($25K), unvested RSUs ($20k), and educational reimbursement I will need to repay ($24K) if I change jobs before the year end? It’s for a new manager role in the industry and I don’t want to sound like a clown asking for a $70K sign up on the $160K base comp…
Considering becoming a CFP and CFA but I’d like to know what the job market looks like. For those of you who are practicing, how long were you searching for a job and are you satisfied with your experience thus far?
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Has anyone gotten approved for Delta’s Reclaim My Status program? What documentation did you provide?
I had the most charge hours of anyone in my office (over 250 consulting staff) for the 2020 calendar year. Is this something I can/should reflect on my resume that could look good in the interview process?
Hi Greg - Two questions. 1.What life lessons would you give to those who want to stick to consulting in the long run? 2.Same Q but for those who want to exit + what is the optimal role to quit Thanks
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
