Hotel recommendations in LA where a young, active Aussie consultant can stop for a weekend of pampering and pretending she's not a peasant? I have a ton of Marriott points but fine to spend $ too.
HILTON just sent out an email saying they’d adjust the points required for elite status qualifications once the situation is assessed by the team. And reservations can be changed without any fees CONT
How’s Westin MI Ave?
Best SPG in Paris or surrounding area?
SPG Platinum people: have you stayed at a Starwood on your birthday? Did they do anything for you? I thought they'd leave a note at the very least. 😥 #LonelyBirthday
Anyone ever been asked for proof to use corporate rate? I’ve been traveling for the last 3 years and for the first time Marriott wouldn’t honor my rate without proof. Trying to decide how to handle???
PSA: Verify for your points are right for any SPG stays around the 8/18 cutover. Also confirm welcome gift and green choice points. Happened to find 10 stays missing one or the other just this year.
Can you change SPG ambassadors? Mine is useless
Before Bonvoy, points and nights used to hit my account much faster. Is anyone else noticing a delay since the name change? Takes more than10 days for a stay to appear in account and I have to call
“Bonvoy” recommendations in the LA area? Girlfriend and I are spending a weekend there and would like to do Disney one of the days but don’t want to stay in one of the park hotels
Anyone going to the Gaylord party in MD tonight? My friend and I have a suite at the Westin if anyone wants to hang/come up!
Just found out I’m pregnant with my first (married). It’s a welcome surprise but was hoping to make manager summer of 2021. What should my move for promotion be? I’d be due in Nov, mid years are Dec.
Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
Parental leave policies for your companies? Doing a comparison and I'll start. Slalom's: 8 weeks for primary caregiver (maternity leave) 1 week for non-primary (paternity leave)
Worth it to pay the 550/year for the Amex corporate platinum once travel resumes? Looks like all the point multipliers are stripped compared to the normal platinum so my initial thought is it’s not worth it
Any good interview advice? I’m a non traditional student in search of my first teaching job.
Boss is cool giving me some minor additional responsibilities on projects (delegating to other creatives, leading client presentations). How can I parlay this into a promotion to Senior AD? Or ACD?
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
Existing client sets meeting to open RIRA's for he and his wife. He writes down the few Vanguard funds and percentages I setup and then tells me he changed mind and is going directly to Vanguard.
How many years can you remain in the same position/title at the same agency before it starts looking bad or questionable on your resume?
I am M1, 30 yrs with a decently rewarding career so far. I dont hv an M7 degree under belt and dnt think a MBA degree would be too rewarding at this stage. Any thoughts on Stanford MSx program ?
For those of you who interviewed with Yale, what does your app portal say? Mine reverted back to what it said pre interview invite. Curious if that’s normal. No mention of my interview on my checklist.
For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
Is it normal to take time off during your notice period? Especially if it was something you already have approval for before you resigned?
