I’m actually gonna do this! I’d rather plant a tree than get 500 worthless points lol

50000 is pretty good - i travel 75% M-TH which means I’m only getting 1000/week at best. 30,000 points isn’t worth it to me personally just cause i already get 10-15000/week otherwise. 30,000 only gets you about half a night at a nice hotel nowadays

And what’s the guarantee that they will? And where? And when? I’d rather contribute to charities that I know do this and help affect a change

It says “trees planted” so for every night, so I get 2 trees planted? Or is it more like, they bundle everyone’s nights together and plant 2 trees at the end of the year at their headquarters to make the landscape nicer and get a tax write off for “environment goodness”.....?

I’m not trying to call OP out cause I was definitely the same way for a long time and know the majority of folks are likely as well, but it’s a bit sad to think that the population of consultants are all well paid but are quick to dismiss getting trees planted in place of getting extra bonvoy points. That also being said, I know there’s a lot of good folks do as well and bypassing this doesn’t mean people are not doing other charitable good. Just reading “no thanks, I’ll stick to points” though...

I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?
