How do you manage sleep when traveling with a toddler? My daughter just turned two and she had been sleep trained and is an excellent sleeper BUT only sleeps in her own crib. I rock her until she falls asleep and put her in her crib. But this has to be in her room. If I rock her in my bedroom, she won't fall asleep. I want to take a vacation and I'm really afraid that she won't fall asleep in the hotel and will cry a lot. She sort of understands when we talk to her so I can communicate...
imagine learning about the consulting life as an undergrad, going through the brutal recruiting process, landing “the dream job” where you get to travel, explore, and develop yourself. Then suddenly...Corona hits. And your first day is you in bed waving hello to the HR rep on a zoom meeting in your Superman tidy widys
The funny thing about being a consultant is that people always assume travel stuff is a good present for you. Like yes this 4th travel organizer is the one im finally gonna use 😂 they mean well and they don’t know better but it’s so funny to see what people think of you sometimes lol

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
Going to Vegas for the first time in December. I have Marriott platinum. Are there valuable status matches I should do and influence where I look to stay? Thanks for the advice!!
For Flying Blue (Air France/KLM) points - do you need to book a flight or actually fly before they expire? Tried searching to no avail and they responded on WhatsApp by saying they're swamped and to try calling, which I'm sure won't be much better.
GC holders are not held to the US travel ban. Does that count only when your GC is in hand or i140 approval and AP would work too? Thanks in advance
Key West vs Miami for a baby moon in December / January? Any Marriott recommendations for a low key getaway in either location?
Anyone fly Delta with ORD as their home base? I realize I may need to take connections but is this worth it? Lost EP last year, status matched to Platinum with Delta if having status matters
Are HOAs and property taxes a thing in London? Debating a job btwn nyc and London and while at first glance nyc looks better money wise, housing seems so so much more expensive if buying.

Any current/Ex IBM please guide me to Opt In/Out of the IBM's Medical Insurance. To start of there is a co share of premium for a base sum insured of 3L which comes around 1790/- Then skipping the benefits for a second if I jump on to the claim part there is a Copay of 10-90. Employee will have to bear 10% of the claim and insurer will bear the other 90%. For dependents 20-80 Copay. Are the benefits are good enough to consider copay and subscribe ? Please Suggest.

Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
