Phuket best Marriott/spg hotels?
I'm looking at moving to rollover my 401k in to something that supports BTC and alt coins. Any recommendations/ reviews on self directed IRA accounts out there that support crypto investments?
Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!
Can you create a new delta sky miles account and sign up for your companies fast track promotion challenge again if you didn’t achieve it last time? Or can they block you from doing so?
A special shout out to American Airlines for the app update right as I am boarding, locking me out of my boarding pass. Go ahead, I'll wait. Who needs overhead bin space anyway?
I love business travel. sticking my husband with the kid pickup/after school/leaving early and making excuses to the boss craziness while I sleep in, exercise, work late and eat in peace is bliss.
Alixpartners fishes - have you started traveling again? Do you foresee your travel requirements reducing post covid
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
Bets on delta delays tomorrow?
Which is better: waiting Day if to switch flights on American Airlines or calling a couple days before? I don’t have status (I know bad me) so I can’t switch for free.
What hotel has the best gym in Toronto?
Deloitte fishies. Can we purchase a cheap travel insurance policy through work? Looking to get a low cost policy to cover an international trip
Partner's text to team on Xmas Eve: "Hope you guys have a great week off. My xmas present for a kickass 9 wks - we're not reopening the team until 01/09. I expect travel stories and pics - stay safe."
How are y’all planning upcoming travel? For example, booking non refundable hotels only to see some governments banning travel? Any tricks to not lose the $$ ?
Is it just me, or does anyone else not really sleep Sunday nights before travel day? I usually only get 2 or 3 hours 😅
Note to self: United doesn't start boarding 30 mins before, but ends boarding 30 mins before.
Anyone had negative pregnancy tests but was actually pregnant? It’s around my time of month but no period yet.
How does one find/get in touch with recruiters?
Further confirmation why Accenture Strategy sucks. Leadership just announced $4K “raise” for M and SM to “close gap” vs market pay. After lousy raise and bonus in Fall, this is a slap across the face!
Any GA, NC or SC agencies hiring?
Has anyone noticed a huge drop in reliability with United's Wi-Fi service? I feel that in the last month or two my Wi-Fi rarely works and they just tell me it's "intermittent because of weather"
For those applying to schools in round 1 and round 2: are you sending thank you cards / gifts to your recommenders now or after they submit the round 2 LORs?
Have a screener for a non-FAANG public tech company as a senior employment counsel (2014 grad). Currently live in LA making 80% market at a firm. Any advice for an upper limit of total compensation if asked?
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
Was going to miss a connection due to a delay on AA. Instead of the red eye alternate that they recommended, I chose one with an overnight stay. Is AA supposed to provide a hotel/meal?
Fellow consultants, I’m struggling and I know complaining about this will only make me look weak but I need to vent. I’ve been working upwards of 60 hours a week since January and I’m tired. If I was doing meaningful work, it would be one thing but most of my days are spent supporting my client with fire drills that end up not mattering. He’s very reactionary and trying to guide him to hold off or think of other approaches doesn’t work. (Cont).
I graduated with my bachelor's in HRM and I'm wondering if there are any certifications or trainings I could do before I lock down on the SHRM-CP. I recently became HIPAA certified for my company and that got me thinking about what else I could do to add to my resume. Looking for good stepping stone certificates.
Hello everyone! This is my first time posting since joining this platform. I’m interested in connecting with someone who is open to HR mentoring. I’ve been in HR now for about six years and have never had a mentor. I’ve been relying mostly on SHRM and other people in the company for feedback. Even if it’s for feedback, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
Has anyone heard back from Bain for AC 1R interviews? The app was due more than 2 weeks ago and still haven’t heard anything. Bain & Company
Hi all, I really need some advice here, I have the feeling our company has gone a bit overboard in uploading policies. When someone starts, they have 30+ policies to read. I am a bit flustered and looking in other ways to reduce the number of documents to read, but still want everyone to be informed. Any suggestions/tips?
My H1B transfer to a new company got approved. But now deciding to stay with current company. Would there be any issues?

Asking to the Indian folks, for the ones laid off or having issues and having to go back home, how is the job market currently in India? Any of you tried looking around?
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?
