Pleasant red eye flight gets better when a kid next to me constantly kicks me in his sleep
What travel/rewards credit cards do you all recommend that will give you the most value for your buck (points, annual fees, intro offer, etc)? Originally, I planned on Southwest but read elsewhere to look at non-travel cards (e.g. Chase Sapphire Preferred and Amex Blue Cash Preferred).
L.E.K friends - I was reached out to by a recruiter and would like your help on if I should proceed. I would be coming in as a manager or right belo manager.

(I am recruiting for pharma) How likely are you to get chosen for the Swap program? International travel? And anything else that can help with this. Thank you very much!

Hello! I just got NIE exemption for travel from India to US. Does anyone know if I can travel to Europe and come back to US or is the NIE visa limited to specific proclamations? Thanks!
I have always dreamt of living abroad. A few years in Europe, and then APAC. Transfer plans fell through with covid, and I’m pretty sure they will be delayed due to Delta. Turning 25 this month and feel like that dream is getting farther away. I’ve always been ambitious, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized traveling and exploring other cultures is what truly makes me happy and that’s what I want to use my career in tech to fund. I know this is a first world problem, but has anyone done this?

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.

Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
I feel hopeless on my project and I cry regularly as soon as I hang up at least one call a day. (Woo work from home!)

Advice on dealing w/ difficult mgr? Specifically, she pushes team hard to get things to her review. Mgr doesn’t look at for 10-14days, then sends review comments and asks for updates by EOD/tmrw. Also not uncommon for her to interrogate team members about time they have charged, despite detailed time descriptions and hours being reasonable/in budget. Been 8 months working w her. I get anxious b4 mtgs w her. I have been interviewing. Unreasonable to ask counselor to roll off these engagements?
