I got my first full time job back in March 2019. It’s my dream job in terms of work, team + industry. (I work for a travel agency doing their social). The only downside is the PTO. (Cont)
Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.
Took a flight back from client at noon. Bumped to first class. I swear they tried to get me drunk 🍸🍸🍸🍸
If you take a connecting flight does it count as two segments (MQS) for status acquiring purposes. Can't find answer online
If you are under investigation for security clearance, can you still travel abroad? Given that it can take a year + to be completed, it seems silly to stop all int travel.
Who brings a crying baby on a 6am flight? 🙄
Befor Covid, were any of you working moms who had to travel? I’m in audit and I’m so nervous about having kids and having to spend the night away from them when they are little.
We want to go to Thailand with our 1 year old in Nov; however, we have been told we are crazy multiple times. We would hire nannies once there, but obviously it’s a bit scary with COVID (though when we mentioned the trip to our pediatrician, he seemed more concerned about the 20+ hour travel time. We are flying business, if that helps). Could anyone provide perspective on how you might consider whether to cancel? Should we do something else (e.g. Europe, Mexico, etc.). The trip is 2+ weeks long
Took a later flight and got some delta credit. What should I redeem? 1) delta credit 2) amazon gift card 3) visa gift card 4) other
How many credit cards do you have and how much do you get back? I think I might have about 10. Amazon/wholefoods - 5% Visa Dining - 4% Master Online shopping - 3% Visa Travel - 3% Visa+Master+Amex Grocery - 3% Amex Drugstore - 3% Visa Everything else - 2% Visa+Master one card w/ rotation of categories - 5% Discover
How much would it cost for a cab to take you from SFO to Japantown? Flight will get in around rush hour, if that matters.
Not a good day to start my 2 week vacation! Flight is scheduled to depart in 2 hours from ATL and still shows as on time . Pray for me 🐠s
Do most firms allow alternate weekend travel (eg. If it's cheaper to fly somewhere else than home for the weekend, then you can expense the entire flight cost)?
Leaving my firm and need to transfer 69K Amex points. What’s the best transfer partner to consider if I already have solid balances with Delta and Marriott/SOG?
Now with the Marriott merger, should I get one of the Marriott credit cards? I currently use my CSR for everything. Looking to see what some of your strategies are for travel cards
ORD - first the flight is delayed, then they can't find a gate, and to top it off, once they get to the gate, they can't find any ground crew to deplane the flight - thanks United!
H1B stanping question - I just got my h1b renewed, but i need to travel in december to Asia and likely the place im travelling to will not return my passport before i have to return to the US due to christmas and new years holidays. If i go to Toronto, Canada before this and try to get the stamp before asia trip can i work while im getting the stamping done? Or is that illegal? Im afraid of taking too much vacation time across both trips.
Anyone flying out of EWR? How is the security check? I am running late and will reach 30 mins before my flight. ;(
Avis at Lax sucks a fat one! Been waiting for the shuttle for 20 minutes to take me to the airport.
Delta 🐠: if you have a first class ticket, can you bring a guest you are traveling with into the Delta Lounge? Travel companion doesn’t have a first class ticket but has platinum status. Thanks!
For those doing production in COVID, how large were your crews? How many at location vs on the actual set?
Are banks in the US still requiring people to go into the office? My brother at JP Morgan in Sydney is still going in bc apparently they can’t WFH (something about no access to Bloomberg terminal 🙄)
Any (light) book recommendations to read- non fictional, not self-help. Psychology, abstract, biography, science, human evolution, how our mind works, etc..
Need some inspiration...fam keeps asking for my holiday gift list and I have very few ideas for myself (34M). Have a few crutches I can lean on from wardrobe/hobbies (golf etc.). Anyone have any go-to, can’t-live-without items they recommend? (Budget <$500 per item)
Any insights on CP+B Boulder? Are layoffs still rampant/has Bogusky’s return changed anything for the better?

I got fired from my job today as an analyst. I felt I was wrongly and unjustly fired. My manager and I did not get along. How long will it take to get another job in Manhattan?
Is there a law I’m not aware of that mandates that every spot about a Zoom call, if you must create one, has to include a tangential bit about being on mute?
Anyone have any insights on Select Equity’s expertise, culture, and interviewing process? Was approached for a role and intrigued by the opportunity

Anyone leave consulting to go into executive recruiting? Just had a call with a firm for a senior role (essentially one level below partner), they offered some pretty impressive comp numbers if you hit their targets. I'm wondering if this is a legit opportunity, and want to get some perspective
