Note to all: Just because you have elite status and are riding dirty in first class does not mean you get to be a douche nozzle. Don't make the window passenger step over you to get to their seat!!!!!
Qualifying for elite status is like the myth of Sisyphus - we spend all year rolling our stone up the hill then it's back to the base. #notevengoldyet
Why can’t they make the Lifetime Platinum status as the Lifetime Platinum PREMIER ELITE status with Lifetime Ambassador support, instead of the regular lifetime platinum?!
Ambassador Elite Status - worth it? I had it years ago but never really used it. And how/when does the intro happen?
Any challenges going on for Marriott Gold Elite?
Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.
If you achieve new platinum elite status on Marriott this week, how long does that last for?
PSA - those who are so close to Marriott lifetime platinum elite should work on getting the status by end of year. If you do this you will be grandfathered into lifetime platinum premier
Marriott and SPG members can link their accounts, Match elite status, and transfer points 3-to-1!
If I book a room with bonvoy points for my parents and I won’t be there, can they still have the free breakfast?
I currently have SPG Gold, matched to Marriott Gold, but earned through Amex Platinum. When the programs merge this week, will I go to Gold Elite or Platinum Elite? (cont.)
Realized I won’t make SPG gold elite by the end of the year. Will I have to start over again in 2019 with a balance of 0 or will I still have my 23 nights balance to forward with?
New to hotel points. Best way to redeem them? Do hotels offer Promo weeks? Hilton Honors (switching to SPG after I use these up)
I completed 5 years of elite status and 250 nights with SPG. It made me a Lifetime Gold member. Does it mean much? Also, what does it mean with Marriott and SPG loyalty program unifying in Aug. Thanks
In my consulting experience I have found nothing harder than scoring an upgrade on a flight into or out of SNA (Orange County) RIP "elite status" 😡
Would like to hear opinions on this scenario: County-owned Nursing Home & Rehab center (240 skilled, 40 rehab beds) being sold to a new buyer. The home has a contract w/ a food service company that would need renewed by the potential buyer if they choose. The employee in this scenario is a Clinical Nutrition Manager who works for this food service company. Their department is Clinical Nutrition, consisting of 2 employees including the Manager. Job security, maintaining similar pay up in the air.
Are any of the healthcare agencies more creative than the others? Or all about the same?
I recently got my friend hired (1-week in) at my workplace and turnaround is all time high right now (darn Covid, 3 people left since I've joined for 7 months), but I'm gonna be talking to a recruiter as a salary offer came up for 50% higher than my current workplace. I feel really bad if this opportunity actually comes true as 50% increase to salary is ridiculous not to consider. I feel horrible and don't want to burn bridges and I like the people & manager I work with. What should I do?
Still confused on moving back or not (currently subletting place to someone). What have your experiences been like? Rent worth it even though work still remote?
We are hiring for Fall Product Manager internships. I work at a productivity startup in Boston. Feel free to send me a message for more info.
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
Recommendation on shoes appropriate for client facing sessions as well as comfortable? - wolf and shepherd crossovers, taft jack shoes, allen edmonds, cole haan zero grands?
Ha, in reference to the earlier post.
I don’t see many transitions at the analyst/associate level from one consulting firm to another unless it’s to or from Big 4. Does anybody know why that is? Is it frowned upon to do this at such an early level?
What web meeting platform are you using for client meetings? I’m currently using GoTo, but considering switching over to Zoom. (Got rid of Fuze years ago, it was crap)
Are you all utilizing more retention bonuses to try to help control attrition? Trying to get a sense of it’s been a successful tactic for your organization or if you’re doing anything else to reduce regrettable exits.
PHR or SHRM? I am looking to get more certifications related to HR vs recruiting, but I am unsure on which one is "better" or will help me grow into more of a strategic HR role. Help!!!
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
Anyone know what a generalist at DE Shaw might make if I have 4 years of work experience including one year in big law? It seems like a generalist can also come straight out of undergrad so…I’m not excited to go through interviews with 0 sense of the salary potential… apparently it can take multiple interviews before they give you any sense
I have worked in the HR space for the past 9 years, however most of my experience has been in Talent Acquisition. I do want to move into a People Operations/Generalist role. I’m planning to go for a HR certificate but unsure if I should go for a PHR or SHRM. Please advise!
Besides pay/benefits, what are changes that happen when you move from a C to M levels? Do you have access/exposure to different tools that help you do your job/take on bigger responsibilities?
Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.
Can anyone at D confirm or deny? Is this group specific? Hoping this kicks it off B4 wide.
Really? Y’all didn’t know that it was him? Well, I hope you know. Learn a lesson in democracy, yet?
Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk). I’m having her do some online typing lessons to get her to be a faster typer, maybe find her a data entry gig. She does not want to do nanny’ing / babysitting. She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?
