We’d like to take our first travel holiday since covid with our son who will be right around 2 yo. Considering asking our babysitter to join so dad and I can actually enjoy ourselves some of the time. We both work very hard and don’t consider time with toddler to be relaxing! But we’re also wondering 1. Is this too bougie? 2. How do we keep costs from spiraling out of control, Eg. 3 bedroom airbnb or two hotel rooms significantly more expensive/or just not as nice if it’s within range. TY!
Question about LEAPs. I purchased 1/2022 calls on a few down in the dumps real estate stocks like IVR. When I read about leaps, the advice was to buy some thing with a minimum delta of .70, So I bought, for example, a 1.50 call for IVR. If this stock reaches pre-Covid levels, and my LEAP is deep, deep ￼l￼TM, will I have trouble selling it? Thanks, this is my first day.￼

Delta DMs/PMs: anybody know how those on the GUC/RUC waitlist are prioritized? I know DMs always come before PMs, but what happens if two DMs in the same paid fare class both use a GUC for example?
Ive been bullish since June and expect this rally to continue until late August. After that, I’m loading up on VIX and value stocks. Open to feedback/different viewpoints. Delta variant is irrelevant IMO. Week of July 26th - Choppy mid-week due to interest rate decision on 7/28 Week of August 2nd - Bullish all week leading up to July Jobs data Week of August 9th - Inflation data might cause slight pullback but still bullish Week of August 16th - Bullish until options expiry on August 20th

Relocating from NYC to Philly for biz-school in Q3-20. Not planning to return to NYC or consulting. Delta Platinum this year but not expecting to travel too much. Should I switch alliance to American?
Apologies if this has been answered, but my annual spend shows as $0 with both SPG and Marriott. Is this a known issue along with the others?
TPG has an article that says Marriott Platinum Elite gets Gold United but I can only see Silver on the website. The article was back in March so I'm guessing the deal expired?
What do you think of the new travel policy? When flying from Singapore this is still a huge gamble… but at least the company is more accommodating now, which is a welcome move.
Anyone ever status challenge up (not status match from other airline) successfully? Looking at Delta or United?

Currently in audit, looking to do tax returns for friends and family on the side to make a little extra money. Two questions: 1) would the firm have a problem with this if it doesn’t interfere with my work? I assume no since the firm probably isn’t interested in filing my brother’s return (he is a union electrician). 2) I have no experience in tax (I don’t even do my own return), so is there a good software to use for this or what is the best way to learn how to do tax returns?

Interested in hearing anyone’s thoughts or experiences moving to a new market recently (since everything has gone remote). Currently an associate making cravath comp in a large city (not new DPW scale yet) but have been trying to move to a different market to be closer to family. New market is on the low range of compensation, but I’d continue to work with other attorneys in large metro areas. It seems like some firms are nationalizing comp. Any successful negotiations?

For all ex-Deloitte 🐠 I’m in advisory. Leaving 3 months before my 2 years is up. How does the sign on bonus repayment work? Do they take it out of our final check? Or PTO payout? If I wanted to talk to someone about prorating the amount to pay back, who would that be and at what point do I do that? I appreciate any input!
Are referrals location-specific? E.g. Could a friend who works in City A’s FDD group provide me a referral to the same firm’s FDD group in City B?

I am a decent candidate, my last 5 interviews were EY, McK, EY, McK and GS (last round, 1st round, last round, 2nd round, 1st round).

I know it's bad form to ever list a client name on my resume, what about mentioning the name in an interview? It doesn't flow very well saying "top 5 global pharmaceutical company" vs. Pfizer
