I would like to spend a month or little less in NYC to get a feeling for it before I make the decision to move there. Dont have a crazy budget to get a hotel for a month and airbnb fees are stupid high. What other options do I have?

So I am about to make silver in Delta. New to travel. Will my silver status continue Into 2018 and I'll start working towards gold or will my status hunt start over?
Best app or medium to pay credit card bills and receive cashback or discounts. I've got to pay a large bill, hence asking.
I just reached lifetime platinum at SPG. But, I still can’t figure to turn on lamps in the room.. quickly enough.🤦🏼♂️
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)?
My credit score dropped 18 points for no reason. I froze my credit 3 weeks ago. No new credit inquiries, new loan and only $500 on one credit card. WTH? Is that happened to anyone?
PSA when a Westin tells you they’re taking extra precautions and super cleaning everything they mean they aren’t cleaning anything, not changing out dirty washcloths from previous guests, and removing
Holy crap, did you guys know Marriott and SPG were merging? There are integration issues on day one too! GTFO!

Best alternative to Hilton loyalty? And will they match my status? Getting fed up with Hilton's poor customer service.
Us open grounds passes for sale. Two for Friday for $80 each, two for Saturday for $115 each. Flight to NYC was cancelled this morning :-(.
If your flight is ever cancelled, call Deloitte travel right away. AA wanted to put me on a 5pm flight. Deloitte travel had access to one at 8am and was able to quickly check all the other airlines.
Still hoping to purchase Hilton Honors points! Ideally looking for 150k, but fewer will help as well. Hmu if you have some to sell!

Have a friend in need of remote work (kid with bad lung disease at home, doesn’t want to risk bringing COVID home). He has a bachelors and masters degree in math but no formal business experience. What are his chances getting hired in consulting, and what might be the best kind of practice for him to look at?
Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices
Why won’t more employers offer the opportunity for international students to join them? I just convinced my startup to sponsor me and I’ve been leading the process. All I had to do was register us on E-verify (FREE), and hired a law firm to help us with the H1B which will cost $7K. I still have two years of stem OPT on top of that. I thought the process was way more complicated. Not sure why some firms say they don’t accept international students when the process is so straight forward.
WFH means more time with the green goddess. More time grinding the herb. How often are you guys meeting aunt Mary? Are you guys safely practicing puff puff pass? I am talking about weed btw
I shifted from Consulting over to a CSM role and am finding that even though I’m in a better place culture and pay wise, I’m feeling every day social anxiety that comes with a customer-facing role, making me think I’m not cut out for this and that I should move to something more internal, like corporate strategy. My worry is if I make this type of move, a paycut will always have to follow. Has anyone else felt this and can offer some advice?

I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me. The salary is great because there is a shortage of qualified Dynamics developers, but I want to do something else, even if that's just back to being a run of the mill C# Developer. Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?
I’m a lazy investor and don’t want to think about my money, so I invest my Roth IRA and 401K into a Vanguard target fund (2065). Should I be doing more with my money?
Okay, I seriously love the group I’m in - audit. Very happy. Could do it for life. Genuinely. Interacting with another group (advisory) - they’ve really come to like me. I got an unsolicited interview
For a strategy-esque (non-PM) career trajectory in FAANG/tech, what’s the comp trajectory look like? Can one ever reach MBB partner-like comp? MBB’s pay trajectory is too good to leave, but maybe I’m being naive
Anyone interested in providing a referral to FireEye, Inc.? I have over 3 YOE in consulting. Thanks
Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE? My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k. For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc. Thanks!
I wish I could travel back in time and work on the Street during the 80s. Not exactly stand up gentlemen, but it looked like a hell of a lot more fun.

For those of you who have gone the HR consulting route, any advice on starting out? I just fell into an opportunity that is too good to pass up. I'm not planning to leave my day job at this point, but I'm certainly interested in the prospect of growing a consultancy.
