Heads up for TSA precheck lady with a power trip in AA terminal in ORD. Made me check a bag that fit in the bin and that I flew with 130 times last year
Have an offer for $110K pre-tax in consulting and have the option to choose between Boston, DC, Seattle, and San Francisco. I prefer East Coast but which cities would allow me to save the most versus the least? Trying to understand cost of living in these cities, 27M Single, just FYI.
Should I fly American or Virgin from BOS to London next month? Timing and price are all the same. No status on either airline so I’m in economy. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️

Looking for exit as data analyst/data engineer in a tech company in the DFW area. Anyone has any insights

What on earth is going on with CLT today...
Has anyone stayed at the Courtyard San Juan Miramar in Puerto Rico? If so, how did you like it?
@DTW All gates holding off on boarding due to "some security issue". Anyone else around the airport know what the issue is?
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.
Finally got into Chicago after a bunch of delays in SFO, and my uber driver missed exit and the trip is now 20 minutes longer due to rerouting :(
What’s a normal rule of thumb for how much to spend on rent in a high COL area eg BOS, NYC, SF. Of course the percentage would be different if you’re making say 100k versus 300k
Is 120k an acceptable salary for Dallas, Texas? I’m taking a pay cut to move there from San Francisco

🐟 folks - anybody know good immigration lawyers in New York or Virginia. Need it for a H-1b friend who is not in the big 4.
Is this a red flag? I have been at 2 companies and have 3 YOE. 2 years at the first company and 1 at the second. Company I’m interviewing with right now is dragging me through the coals about it like I’m some kind of serial job hopper. Ive never experienced this at any other interview I’ve had. Is this seriously that big of a deal?
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.
How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
People who have the Amex platinum - how did you use the airfare credit? Preferred airline is UA and I don’t want to lose the credit at the end of December. No other trips planned until next year.
McKinsey people a few weeks ago: “Sorry, I can’t refer you because it would dilute my network quality and I won’t even take the time to get to know you.” McKinsey people now: “Take my referral and apply now!” What a difference $5k makes.

The only thing I’m looking forward to at EWR:
Fishes - Appreciate any insights on prep for an upcoming interview with Uber for a strategic planning role. Thank you.
Currently in my first year in AM and I keep getting job recommendations to the strategic finance manager role at Deloitte. Should I even bother applying? If so, any tips on how I should go about the process?
How can I not be awkward at conferences where all my remote coworkers that I've never met will be there? I have an issue with awkward silence and not knowing what to say or how to act.
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Can someone travel to US with a stamped Canadian Student Visa? My brother is moving to Canada for studying and I'd like for him to have a 1-2 week pitstop in US. US consulate shows temporarily closed for a B1/B2 visa. Appreciate any inputs from fellow desi bowl members.
Have you dated a man with a child? What are healthy boundaries between your S/O and the mother of his baby? I want to be understanding but a part of me knows that there will always be something “more”
Hi folks, I was on H1B visa and moved out of US 2 years back. I should have 3 years left on my H1B visa. I am planning to go back to the US now. Do I need to apply for H1B lottery? Or can I reuse my previous H1B. FYI - I work for a different employer now.
Is it common for firms to offer part-time? Difference between associates and partners? How do the hours and pay compare to regular hours and pay (do you actually work less, or does your team need help so you end up working basically full time for less compensation)?
Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
