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.
Flight scheduled for tomorrow night, trying to standby on earlier flights - is it possible to get the standby fee waived at the desk, or do you have to pay that no matter what? United / Silver status
With all my flights planned on United through the end of year, I'll be only one PQF away from requalifying for United Gold Status. Is it worth an extra $89 and a few hours of my time to reroute myself to BOS on my way to LGA, just so l get the extra PQF to reach Gold? If I don't, I'll be at Silver next year, but idk what material differences are b/t Gold and Silver besides upgrades at 24h instead of 48h. Worth it?
Hey everyone, I have a BSc degree from a semi-target university in the United Kingdom, and I currently have around 2 years of strategy consultancy experience at a Big 4 in one of Africa's most competitive economies.

Had to utilize my homeowners insurance for the first time. Long story short there’s water damage and they’re drying it out with fans and a dehumidifier. These things are loud and debris is everywhere so they covered our kitchen and living room with sheets. Process could take 3-5 days. I know we have loss of use coverage. In your opinion, would getting a hotel/Airbnb be reasonable and covered under loss of use?

So, I’ve recoded a few of my Zoom meetings. On days when I just need me time and I have freetime during the work week. I close my office door, play the pre-recorded meetings, turn up my speakers, and just open a book because everyone at home knows not to disturb me when I’m in a meeting.

I am preparing for my second phone screen for a senior PM position @Amazon. The recruiter told me that it's about product strategy and design interview. What can I expect for this round? Is it a mix of LPs question and strategy questions or just strategy questions? Please suggest. Thank you! Amazon
Dear 🐠 I need some advice: Should I leave my BizOps role at tech to join S& at a post MBA level role? For context I have done some non-strategy consulting work before (bug4). Kind of tired of my current role and looking for maybe a change of function. Have a couple of other offers all tech/startup bizops type roles. Pay ranges vary but nothing much different from the S& offer. I’m getting mixed vibes from S& (ok brand vs culture) and not sure if tech to S& is the right move. ~ 5yoe Strategy&
