Just beginning to get on the road, with the merger coming up in August, who should I max out points with? SPG or Marriott?
I haven't stayed at Marriott for a while but I just logged in and it looks like they think I'm Platinum. Last time I checked I was Gold (a year ago). Has this happened to anyone else?
United - don’t really travel on United that often and wanted to transfer my balance to a family member. The portal is charging me $90 to transfer 6k points. Seems dumb. Any way around it?
Comp comparison question: First year Director in Advisory (financial services), 10 YOE total - coming up on 8 years with KPMG. Joined as an analyst in 2012 and worked up, never made any “jumps” to competing firms for salary boost, and also moved from smaller market to NYC two years ago - thus wondering if my $165k salary is in line with other new-ish Directors at big 4, or way off the mark. Any comparison points would be much appreciated. TIA.
So many new accounts here parroting MAGA memes, talking points from untrusted news sites. Keep going guys. Your desperation is entertaining!
FYI: Amex Gold is offering a 60,000 point bonus when you sign up using a referral link compared to the standard point bonus of 35,000. DM me if you’d like a referral link or have any questions! 4x points on groceries 4x points on restaurants, bars, food delivery 3x points on flights $100 airline credit $120 dining credit
Chicago singles. What NYE party are you going to? Contemplating on Drake, JW, W, and Hilton options:) all look very similar.
That moment when you are certain that you are going to miss your connection and you give up all hope... and then book a room at the Ritz and at least have a good 🍖🍷 ahead.
My SPG ambassador signs off all emails with "as always it's my pleasure to serve you". I'm about to tell my analyst she needs to do the same when addressing me. 👍🏻🤘🏻😎
Starting a new job and will have regular M-Th travel. I can book all travel w/ personal cards and I need held figuring which one(s) to get. I will stay in Marriott hotels and fly mostly American. TIA!
Maybe it’s just me but recent interactions with Marriott customer service are turning out eerily similar to my worst calls with United and AA.
Thank you Marriott Georgetown, DC for having your shitty concierge lounge shut down (for some renovation). I am actually happier with your free appetizer + drinks(!!!) coupon in lieu of that!
Have some suite nights with SPG leftover, can I now use them at Marriott properties or is that benefit still tied to Westin, W, etc?
Experienced hire McKinsey candidate here, no MBA (yet) - what level of business knowledge is expected from cases? I did engineering for undergrad and want to make sure I’m well versed before my case interviews but am not sure what a reasonable scope is. I’ve been in big 4 consulting for the past 2 years so I have some exposure to business terminology.
Anyone familiar with the Process Owner role at Google? The recruiter is selling it like an enterprise effectiveness, operations excellence and business operations management role, but reading between the lines it smells like a heavily administrative, internal controls focused, and process input/output gate keeper role. Any insights? TIA!!
FAANG or PE Ops. I currently am in PE Ops consulting but have an offer from Amazon. Any ideas on what would provide more job security? Trying to decide if I should make a jump to FAANG
Interviewing tomorrow and the company has communicated their intention to make an offer by the end of next week. 1) would you take this offer so close to busy season; 2) is the quick hiring decision a red flag? Enough to steer clear of position? It’s a promotion to manager for me and - little over 25% base pay increase.
With all the bad airline press, thought I'd share this nice story about a Southwest flight crew: http://en.newsner.com/now-we-pay-tribute-to-the-airline-that-did-everything-in-its-power-to-help-a-mother-in-need/about/news,family
Have an upcoming interview with S&’s Healthcare practice. Just curious, can I expect a standard interview (case and fit), and maybe a slant towards “why healthcare” as well as maybe healthcare themed cases, or is there more technical info I should know? Thanks!
PwC'ers. Just got an email from emobility saying my iPhone order is complete? What's next? I receive an email from at&t?
Diamond w/ Delta & have 0 status w/ any other airline except w/e basic United status Marriott gives. New project in Chicago, worth it to switch or just deal w/40 min layovers in Detroit/Atlanta?
Has anyone else’s work performance suffered since COVID due to the stress/distractions at home, lack of motivation, etc? How to bounce back?
Anyone who never worked in big 4: what has your career path been like? Did you face a lot of obstacles by not having b4 on your resume? Are there times it’s better to never go b4?
Has anyone made a successful transfer from an EM/EL position at MBB to a VP at a BB ibank, or vice versa? I know the skillsets are different but wouldn’t they even out at the project management level?
Anyone have experience as a SPM in AZ? I'm severely under paid. I've been promised a raise to correct it, but not sure if I should accept it or if it will be time to move on.
Does anyone know of / use escrow type service for virtual payments? All this covid has me sending money in ways I never would have months ago. For context, think of placing a virtual bet or buying something off Facebook group with shipping involved. The only one I found is escrow.com but is marketed towards auto.
Anyone who’s flown out of CLT recently know if dining is open? Have a 9 am flight so hoping to grab a coffee before hand :)
Does anyone else ignore emails marked as urgent for an hour or two just out of spite? I'm like psh I know you're the client but you can't tell me what's urgent to me today
