Problem is most of these lounges are in Terminal 5 @ ORD, and I’m usually flying into or out of Terminal 1. The $495 annual fee is getting tough to justify these days. Thoughts?

The few times I’ve stopped at the one at IAH, it was pretty empty

Leave for another consulting firm even tho I’m up for promotion in a few months at my current firm? Pros of leaving are better work life balance, not stuck in one industry, minimal travel. Cons are comp - I’d be making slightly less base than what I would after promo (tho higher then right now) and significantly less bonus
