In Chicago, should I pick Delta or United as the airline that I pursue status with? Other than preferences for service, are there any real differences (e.g., availability of direct flights, etc.)?
First trimester friends, what excuses are you giving to avoid travel since it’s too early for “pregnant” to be one of them?
Planning to travel the world. Want to figure out how to work my ass off hourly, remotely during busy season, and make enough money for the rest of the year. At $90-$100 hr for 4 months I'd (Cont...)

When booking travel, is there a way to filter hotels that have a lap-swimming 🏊 grade swimming pool?
Does anyone else struggle with family that is resentful of your financial resources? I grew up middle class and my mom, brother and Sister-in-law frequently make passive aggressive comments. I travel frequently but otherwise live a very unflaunty lifestyle (I.e., I don’t own a car, rent a two-bedroom apartment). Get comments about my eating out at restaurants, travel, etc. I don’t even talk about/share those things with family, unless asked.

Wtf is up with Airbnb? Lately the prices on there are incredibly deceiving. Cleaning fees and service fees are too much. Looked at a place that was about $185 and then after fees and taxes, the total went to $445. I rather get a hotel at that point

Also are the travel and long hours the same as MBB?
I am a woman early 30s considered “good looking” by many people, healthy, workout twice a week and have a successful career. I believe that I dated a guy mid 30s in the closet for 1 year and I am having trouble moving on because I was very attracted to him. He made me feel that I am not good enough shortly after we became together. We would travel together and he would not want to kiss or do anything intimate except pecks on the lips bec “it’s not classy in public”,but he did nothing in private.
Was running late for the flight. Politely asked a guy (consultant too) in front of me in security line whether I can go ahead of him. He bluntly denied. Is this justified?
Any recommendations for a Starwood or Marriott hotel in Miami or South Beach for families with little kids?
I was a loyal Amex SPG cardholder that migrated to Amex Bonvoy ($450 annual fee - which is really $150 after the $300 Marriott spend credit) ... we charge all personal expenses to this card (over $75K/yr). I feel that Bonvoy Platinum Elite status and a free night per year are nice, but are there better cards that have better rewards? Our other card is Costco Visa (for Costco purchases or for places that don’t accept Amex).
Is there a travel agency or service that specializes in booking trips using your points?

Anyone have experience with the JP Morgan’s Strategy division? What are the differences between the Core Strategy and Strategy & Process Improvement? Appears to be an internal consulting division.
Mr. Robot is killing it again. What an ending to this week's show. Mind you, I'm such a fanboi I bought the $2.99 phone game and pre-ordered Elliott's notebook on Amazon.

Honest question: why did you choose to work at your firm (instead of a competitor or industry? Etc.)
Any advice from someone who’s quit consulting without a job (or school) lined up? I’m kinda miserable at my job and know I want to leave soon, but working non-stop makes it difficult to truly assess my next step. I want a little space, especially because I have no interest in going to another consulting firm or FAANG, but I don’t want to sacrifice job or school prospects for a gap.
