New to consulting. Any recommendations for getting elite status with airlines, rental and hotels?

First rule. Pick one and stick with it.


New hires are automatically silver at delta just sign up


Almost every airline/hotel has a status challenge. Just call the rewards hotline. SPG-18 nights in 3 months gets you platinum. Marriott- 9 stays in 3 months.


I'm new as well. Apparently PwC is currently working with Delta to give all employees status. I was told 'soon' last week.


Time and fortitude. Believe me when you get there, you'll wonder what part of yourself you sold to get there.


SPG in my opinion. As far as airlines totally based on your travel hub and where you're traveling for projects. Get a sense for that piece first.


SPG Platinum challenge. SPG's by far the most lucrative points program.

Also, tons of resources out there on this subject. like: thepointsguy.com


Which brands are easier to get there?

How about platinum at delta?

Marriott doesn't do platinum challenge from time to time.. Plus just go with SPG. Points are worth wayyy more, no contest

Airlines will make you buy your way there, so prob not worth it

Thanks guys!

Pick an airline, hotel, and bank that pair (eg Spg, delta, Amex I think). Check out Spark: Business Travel to Know - US

How realistic is it to land an AD position as a fresh grad (with a doctorates) and a handful of pharma & FDA interships? I'll have over a year of (consistent) work experience at a large pharma company and I have prior leadership/mgt experience in a gov't position prior to changing career paths and pursuing my doctorates. TIA!


Friendly tip: Don't burn bridges even with those who are leaving - our industry is small (even in Manhattan) and you will almost certainly see that person again if you stay in pharma

Is anyone working at Amazon Dubai here? Would anyone be able to tell me the salary range for a Launch/ Startup Coordinator? And a Finance Analyst?
There’s this another job of Program Manager but the job description says you have to be an MBA candidate or a graduate in the last six months. Trying to understand how stringent that rule is. Confused between these 3. Could anyone help out?

Does BCG use third-party recruiters? A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn about a PL role. Seems odd it's an external recruiter and not a BCG company recruiter


On the cusp of being promoted to L6 but have an L5 equivalent offer at Stripe (better comp than current TC of 305, though). Role is essentially the same, although hiring manager claims I'll advance faster at Stripe. Thoughts?

How long should I wait before following up with a recruiter saying they are interested in making an offer? Last Friday an EY recruiter told me after 2 interviews that the team was interested in moving forward and asked for my desired location and salary. It’s now been a full week and I haven’t heard back. Im still in the first round interviews of several other firms, so im not in a rush. But how long before I should send a follow up? Don’t want to seem desperate (I’m not) but im also interested


Moms, my mat leave is ending soon and we recently hired a nanny. She comes highly recommended. She is Colombian and speaks to our 5 month old in Spanish. We asked her to speak in Spanish so our baby could be bilingual. But since I don’t understand what she is saying to the baby, I am super nervous at the thought of her saying mean things to him that we may not understand. She is also super animated so I don’t know if she is being nice to him or not. Am I making all this up and being nervous
