If WFH became a permanent option and you didn’t have to go into the office or travel to client sites, would you stay in the city you’re currently in? If not, where would you move to?
The only thing I’m looking forward to at EWR:
Prayers up for my fellow consultants having to travel on this Father’s Day Sunday. Sucks. 🙏
My partner & I are flying back from Aruba to the US on a delta SkyMiles hidden city/ skip lagged fair before getting on our revenue flights to client sites. Can I cancel our second legs after landing?
30F, thinking about separating from my marriage and looking at cities I could move to. Currently working in ATL and I’d need to come back at least once a month(prefer driving) since I’d still be working/based here. Ideas on affordable yet fun cities? I make 120k right now & I’d prob take the dog with me. TIA! 💚💜
I’m sure this has been asked 100 times before but newbie here. Looking for a recommendation on which airline to use as preferred for points/status/etc... ideally flying out of DCA.
Surface Pro vs MacBook Pro for work. What’s your experience been? I travel frequently, so the Surface Pro is quite tempting. But being able to iMessage from the MacBook is very appealing
Anyone fly united airlines recently?
My dad is a bit financially strict (borderline financially abusive) to my mom, so I want to set up a way to give her allowance money regularly on the DL. Would this be best done by setting up a credit card account for her? Or a separate checking account to which I deposit money every month? How would you do it? TIA!
Dear ACN consultant that talked to me on the bus to DFW, let's grab a drink if you haven't left yet.
My wife has a job opportunity in San Diego. We are thinking about moving from dc. Anyone have thoughts on sd? We have visited a few times, but mostly for touristy things.
Have a ton of Aeroplan points saved up. Debating whether to save them for travel or use them for an Apple Watch. Any tips? Is it generally better value to use them for travelling?
3 single consultants at DFW. Who's here?
Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful. Can I enter the US when I have H1B change of employer petition approved but employed with my current company and serving notice period? Which company’s I-797 form do I show immigration? Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
If I get upgraded to a Delta One seat on a domestic flight, do I still get access to the Delta Sky Club? Or is that only for paid Delta One tickets?
Best way to get to San Diego from LAX? Are there any shuttles / shared ride options at all?
Partner demanding to cancel spring break vacation that was approved last Oct. My project got pushed so now my vacay is the middle of UAT. Paid non refundable 5k air and hotel for my family. WTF?
Need genuine advice. Been planning to move abroad permanently for quite some time but due to pandemic situation, all plans were put to rest. I am having FOMO seeing others still trying to get things done by the way of finding jobs and applying for them. Should I apply too? Not sure how employers are acting towards foreign workers atm.
How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
Best spots to meet people if things ever open back up? All this WFH has me convinced I have should get to know the area I pay rent in nowadays...
Looking to get into healthcare somewhere in the big 4! Someone point me in the right direction! No real preference what firm as long as the healthcare team is strong...any advice?
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Been looking at LinkedIn profiles for the acct/finance staff for a client. Many of them have B4 experience, but they all seem like they're doing dead end work. Makes me re-think exit ops. Advice?
Has anyone gotten the COVID vaccine while pregnant? If so, care to share your experience? Currently debating whether to get it (I’m 21 weeks) or wait till after birth…
I never thought that I'd say this, but I want to see offices and cubes make a return to the workplace. Either that or 70-100% work from home. Only having the option of open workspaces is terrible.
Maybe one or two of the reporters pretending to care about Biden’s answer to court rebalancing because they’re bored of a blowout race could ask the president or senate republicans about the president of the United States believing that Barack Obama and Joe Biden murdered Seal Team 6. https://twitter.com/UrbanAchievr/status/1316118694385385473?s=20
With Michael Thomas out, who would you replace him with in a PPR league today, TY Hilton or Emmanuel Sanders? Like Sanders but worried about Brees after 4 weeks off.
Anyone looking for referrals for ACCENTURE Global location, if you hold visa , working in some other country and willing to move a different country. Pls dm. I can refer. For your preferred location.
