Joining BCG and I’ve heard that their travel policy allows C’s to fly business class on flights over 1.5 hrs. How likely is it that I’ll be able to take advantage of this? What’s the catch?

Does anybody credit card churn? Thinking about getting into it. Any advice, pitfalls to avoid would be great.
Off-topic: Does anyone have the Zomato edition classic credit card? Wanted to know if we do apply for it, are the other coupons/vouchers still displayed on the app while ordering (since many platforms like Zomato and Swiggy initially show offers for a particular card, and once you link the card, the offer is never displayed again).
Looking to do a staycation at the Ludlow Hotel? There are no recent reviews and I’m wondering if anyone has been ?
Hello! We will be flying for the first time with our son (1yr old) and we’re debating if we should buy a travel stroller. Has anyone gone through security with a large stroller? Do you have to folder it and put it through the scanner? We currently have a Thule jogging stroller (so on the larger size, but tbh not much longer than the vista). I know we will have to gate check it. All tips/suggestions appreciated! Thanks!
I’m currently at $120k TC for fresh LS PhD for a boutique. Job is about 35h/week, full remote, no travel. It’s cushy as hell and will probably reach $160 TC in a year. A few people at MBB said that they think I would get in at the fresh associate position. Would you take the shot? PS: I don’t want to come off as acting like I can get in, just don’t want to waste people’s time with my application if it’s not for me.
Ritz Kapalua or Marriott Wailea Beach Resort? Ambassador status w/ Marriott, seems like neither offers free breakfast and upgrades less likely at RC. Have heard beach access is better at Wailea.
Can anyone interpret mayor Bowser’s new quarantine rules? For example if I live in MD and I travel to California, am I exempted because I’m a MD resident and can go into DC? That’s how I read VA and MD excluded. https://coronavirus.dc.gov/release/dc-health-releases-list-high-risk-states
Southwest boarding: Advice for getting into boarding group A1 although I've never flown w/ them before (signed up for their rewards program already)?
On a Swiggy food order of Rs. 500, I can either:
- Pay Rs. 500 directly via my credit card, or
- Choose CRED Pay, pay Rs. 450 via the same credit card, and CRED pays Rs. 50 on my behalf.
The funny part is that neither Swiggy nor CRED is profitable. I feel like I’m the one burning VC money here.

I am looking for change since 3 months, but not getting enough calls and opportunities due to 90 days of NP .
Is it advisable for me to put the papers and then apply again.
Most of the companies are looking for immediate joiners even they also have 90 days of NP.
Please suggest as it is getting heavy in my mind.

If a company’s HR reaches out via LinkedIn message, is it rude to reply that I’m interested in learning more info and can they provide a salary range for the position? Genuinely interested if it pays more than my current role, but don’t want to waste my time if it pays less. It can go either way based on the job title
Living in SF but remote until September (earliest). Rent is too high + apartment too small to justify staying for 3+ months. Playing with the idea to leave (temp or perm). Are people doing the same?
New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?
It’s disturbing that Publicis fired Tom Goodwin for his Twitter rant. To be clear, they are well within their rights to do so, but I wouldn’t want to work somewhere where you can get fired for questioning the prevailing orthodoxy about important issues of the day, including political topics. Strategists in particular need to feel the freedom think out loud, even if it’s messy. Enforcing a party-line yields party-line thinking.
