I am thinking of switching to United this year . Hardly flown United but I am platinum pro on AA. Will United do a status match for me? Or will I have to start from sliver? How do ppl ask for status

3 nights away from Marriott platinum. Does it reset at the end of the calendar EOY? If so, worth paying out of pocket for those 3 nights?
Would you stay at a Hyatt Regency for 12k Hyatt points or a Ritz for 50k Marriott points? Assume globalist/platinum elite for both
I'm a platinum SPG member and the Sheraton won't give me 4pm late checkout which is fine but they won't even give me noon checkout. If I checkout at 12 instead of 11:30 will they charge me?
Anybody’s SPG ambassador actually do anything for them? I can ask the tiniest favor of mine and she can never help🙄
My family is currently staying at a hotel with my girl unvaccinated. Is there anything we should do to be on a safe side? We wiped the the surfaces as soon as we got the keys.
Just paid off my credit card debt that totaled a whopping 5-digits worth! ($XX,XXX) Took 7 months of sacrifice and making better life choices. I never wanna be in debt ever again!
Made a green choice this week at Sheraton. Even though I also flew cross country, can I still add “environmentalist” to my LinkedIn?
Does the KPMG Cybersecurity practice really travel 80%-100% of the time or is this up to that percentage amount? Do you think after COVID it will go back to this or be reconsidered to a lower percentage?
A friendly reminder to LGA folk — that stupid on-ramp adds 15-20m to your travel time. T minus 45 so here’s hoping the TSA haven’t messed up CLEAR and precheck.
American Airlines:”Ladies and gentlemen we will not be serving snacks or drinks on this flight . You may also not get up to use the bathroom. We take covid very seriously!” Also American Airlines:”ladies and gentlemen we have a full flight today! 😄”
What does one full year of traveling translate to (roughly) in terms of $'s with hotel, rental car, and airline miles/points? I think we are to obsessed with that vs. looking for ways to up income.
Delta guy starting a new project which American is the way better option...unfortunately. Is there a worthy status match program, and is it sponsored by PwC or just call American?
Can you change SPG ambassadors? Mine is useless

Currently have 2.5 yoe. Saw a role for ‘strategy analyst’ at my dream firm that says 1-2 years of experience minimum. Would this be a backwards move?
A couple of days ago, my team was taken off all our projects because we didn’t do so hot... but I’ve never worked and cared so hard for a project in my life. #wtfiswrongwithme
Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
Trying to join another company either in the same discipline (pm) or another one (account). I’ve been honest with all of my applications - especially with the part where they ask about disability. Am I stupid for this? Should I say no? Or I don’t wish to answer?
Rolex Sub, Sea-dweller or Deep Sea? Haven’t tried the latter two in metal and concerned that 43mm and 44mm maybe too big for my wrist (7 inches). But love the last two more. Can I wear it at work?
How's MBB in Malaysia?
A friend opened up to me about her extra marital interest/dilemma surrounding that interest. She realizes her pattern due to some underlying issue she needs to resolve and is seeing a therapist, yet whenever we talk she goes into details related to this guy and about her dilemma. I have listened to her for 3 months and weighed in where I could, and I care about HER and her mental health. But if ask about her mental health she goes into stories about this dude. How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
PWCs new expense system is awful.
Feel free to DM if you need a PWC referral
Has anyone regretted a move and title bump because they didn’t feel ready/weren’t ready? I have an offer from another Big4 for Senior Consultant but am getting nervous about the responsibility and current market. It’s hard to say no to with the title and significant salary bump. I’m on an easy project through the end of the year but have the offer now. Any advice or anyone face the same?

Interviewing with founders of a small shop. I want to ask them in a professional, sincere way if they had to let go of people during the pandemic. Is that bad to ask? “What steps did you take in order to protect job security during client loses?” Is possible. Bc I know some places were able to keep ppl.

For Indian tourists coming to US on B1/B2 visas, is there a route other than direct flight from India to US where they can quarantine and then be permitted to enter US? I’ve heard of Doha where you can do 3 day quarantine before entering, any insights on this would be really helpful. TIA!
