Don’t worry, it’s not allowed for even us directors unless you fly more than 75,000 miles/year (the Manager/Director 75K program) either, only MDs and partners can outright book it. That said, if you do it a lot you’ll quickly get high status and should get better seats and/or upgrades.

I have $700 personal ecredit on delta to use because I cancelled a flight. Can you help me with a few questions please: 1) if I use it to by a $200 flight, do I lose the other $500? 2) is it route locked or can be on any delta flight? 3) I’m assuming it’s locked to me only.

Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!

Getting married next month and we’d like to have a joint checking account to cover shared expenses, however I don’t want to miss out on all the points I can rack up by consistently using my delta platinum card (spending thresholds = point bonuses, etc). Also my credit card bill will likely be a mix of shared and personal expenses, so how do couples go about this? Open to any advice. Thanks!

Annoyed with myself (and work culture): my neighbor came banging on my door this morning to tell me we needed to evacuate because there was a possible bomb threat outside our building. My first instinct wasn't to get out of there as quickly as possible for my safety; instead it was "oh I should grab my work computer and I'll go find internet somewhere so I don't miss a deadline." 🤦🏼

I worked for Deloitte and currently with PwC. I’m not comparing both but PwC is too worse in terms of work life balance and work culture. If Deloitte is given 90, PwC might get something between 20-30 is what I feel. All they need is robots working for their tasks. I do agree it depends on the manager sometimes and trust me he is the worst. Any comments on work culture and work@life balance in PwC SDC Bangalore ?? Is it only me or is there any one who shares similar views?? PwC

Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.
