So I got upgraded to Marriotts Premier Platinum Elite level. Any idea what this means besides getting a gift from them in the mail?
Enrolled in the EY - AA Elite status challenge for Platinum.. I could have sworn when I participated last year, they gave me platinum status for the 90 days... Am I thinking of a different challenge?
My cousins, their families, and I are all planning a quick trip to the mountains. Because of the way availability for our Airbnb worked out, we have to get a hotel the first night. All my cousins and their spouses decided to opt for a cheaper Best Western hotel while I have Bonvoy points I want to use...and also don’t want to stay in a BW. They’re upset with me bc I’m staying somewhere different....For that one night. Am I wrong to choose Marriott bc it’s more convenient for me?
Staying at the Miami Edition for my birthday! Used my points, and am a Platinum Elite member. Any ideas on how to ask the hotel if they do anything nice for birthdays? Also, how to get upgrades?
Have elite status w/ Hertz (PC) and National (EE). Which program will treat me better (upgrades mainly) at Heathrow? What about other locations (train stations etc.) in the UK?
Anyone else still seeing their Marriott Bonvoy elite status still say “until 1/2020”? Anyone know when it will update based on last year’s nights?
Qualifying for elite status is like the myth of Sisyphus - we spend all year rolling our stone up the hill then it's back to the base. #notevengoldyet

What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance? I’ve heard positive things about Google and Amazon/AWS and about some of the big defense firms (Lockheed). Is it actually possible to boost comp by 50% or so on exit from big 4 in this space?

Does anyone have financial anxiety ? I realize I have a toxic relationship with money, maybe because I just started my career (I’m 26yo). But when it comes to spending, I get anxious. I did everything right: saved enough for emergency fund, 401k, Roth IRA and investment stocks. However, I’m always afraid to spend a lot for certain circumstances (ie. Health, moving/new apt, etc..) and be left with less money since I work so hard for it. How do you overcome this stress and anxiety ?

I have some friends over at McKinsey and they were saying I should apply as an experienced hire. I’m currently living in a smaller cheaper city and pretty comfortable with my family here. Friends at McKinsey say they think I would have to relocate. Any truth to that? I know some BCGers that are a part of the Bay Area office but live in PHX so I was just curious...
I was confident that my late-stage interview with Uber went well - just received a rejection email. Perhaps I'm rationalizing, but is it safe to chalk this up as a good miss given the volatility of their business?
Hi ladies, looking for advice on pivoting my career. Currently primary engineer for a system that supports 25k users across 200+ offices. I'm bored with IT. I'm a Jill of many trades, networking, wireless, voice, etc. I'm currently working on learning various netops tools. I like figuring out how to put pieces together but it's not much of a challenge anymore. I'm working on putting together a 5 year plan to move to 100 percent remote because my husband wants to retire and move. Advice?
