Good job OP. I exactly know how waking up at 3 feels 😓. And also I am sure you're doing more meaningful work than "consulting" other clients

I'm about $1000 PQP away from making it from United Gold to United Platinum for 2022. Is it worth it to upgrade my IAD-SFO RT flight to first class for $1000 RT to make it to the next tier? Is United still halting full meal service for first class flights > 2 hrs? Website says they just serve sandwiches and a snack box.

I need to help. My partner and I have been quarantining together. While I have a normal consulting job, my partner is a semi-retired ex-CEO. I’m finding myself constantly booted from the office and relegated to a corner of the bedroom for Zoom client calls. At first I thought it was for consulting work which my partner still does, however, today I found out it has been for things like typing classes, Zoom AA meetings, and showing an aspiring actress our home office set-up (cont.)

How does one start the negotiation process with company that made a new offer? I have the comp details from them but it’s below what I’d be expecting for 2022 TC if I were to stay in consulting.

Hi fishers, I'm a Programmer Analyst with over 2.8 years of experience in SAS and SQL. My preferred location is Chennai/Bangalore. Currently I'm looking for a job switch and it's kind of urgent. Can someone please refer me in HSBC if there are any openings for SAS and SQL. Thanks in advance..

Anybody with 3 YOE+ switch from Core tax to their international group? How was the transition? Did you have to step down a level if you were a recent senior/manager? Did you have to switch firms? Reason I ask is that I wouldn't mind delaying my promotion to manager to get international experience. Want to experience international before jumping from PA.
