Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
Hey Googlers! Considering making a move and am in the interview process with PSO. Role is great but I’m concerned I’ll be asked to give up remote work. Ok with partial travel to clients but I do not want to go into the office to work more than 1-2x per month. How flexible is Google with this?
i have filed my h1b extension. I have received the receipt number nut I cannot see the status on uscis site. also can I travel out of country ?
My flight left on time! Joy! Haha just kidding we have to land because we forgot to empty the lavatories. American Airlines why do you hate us all so much?
Traveling next week for a client after a long time. Booked a Delta Main Cabin ticket through concur. Now I am trying to upgrade to 1st using my points but the delta app shows all premium seats as unavailable. Usually it did let me change it in the past but not this time. Have Delta policies changed for ticket upgrades from Main Cabin to Comfort+ or 1st? I recall all DL Main tix were eligible for upgrade as a additional purchase option.
I needed to find the appropriate bowl to brag. Not sure if this is the place, so forgive me if it is inappropriate. My 11th grade son was just waitlisted for a five day summer camp at his dream college: The United States Coast Guard Academy Even being waitlisted is a big accomplishment. I am so proud of him. If he doesn’t get invited to the summer camp, the Academy is suggesting a few other options, including an overnight stay this fall.
Any vegans here who travel? How do you do it? Not vegan myself but looking to be more plant based and have more control in general over my diet on the road
Looking book Disney hotel with bonvoy points. Any thoughts on Swan vs ritz Carlton vs. JW? Pros and cons of being on ‘property’ vs. a nicer hotel close by?
Just annoyed and ranting. Got 2 denials for credit card apps. I know I’m an immigrant but I’ve a 710 score despite of short history. How do I get better cards???
Perks of being laid off and working local: no more flight and hotel reminders, no more shitty project, less politics and back biting. After 10 years I can say I have a life now.
Anyone know a card that boosts EQMs on American/OneWorld? I switched projects and going to have an issue keeping status this year. Thanks team!
What does your retirement budget look like? Assuming no debt. What is your expected basic minimum expenditures (core life)? And what are you budgeting for fun and luxury? My basic is around 10k a month for taxes and food and transport and utilities. Luxury and fun is another ten. Big expense in basic is property tax. Big expenditure in fun is travel. I think my basic budget is too high and I could bring it down and be very happy in a smaller home and less restaurants.
Hi! Anyone recently traveled to India with Air India? How many check-in bags are allowed? Is it still 2 bags? TIA
On a project in NY. My SO wants to visit. Is it okay if I let her stay at my hotel room? I'll be busy during the day at client site and she can tour the city and we can get dinner at night?
Love when Bluetooth fails on the plane and Lil Pump / Kanye blasts on full volume. Good morning Delta Shuttle!
lmaoooo I wish this was on Zoom
Don’t have us board the damn plane delta when everyone knows damn well that you are going to taxi out onto the tarmac just to sit there for a few hrs. I could be sitting at the bar!
I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

Hello fishes, has anyone been to the US consulate in Tijuana or Matamoros in Mexico for H1b stamping? How was your experience?
How soon is too soon to leave consulting to result a red flag? I have been consulting only for a year and considering an exit .. Wondering if I’ll be able to boomerang again.
I know I’ve made it because I’m in my Lyft on my way to ORD and Karma Chameleon comes on the radio.
How do you delegate tasks to team members that are not a qualified for your projects In regards code review and code creation. I feel as though I am doing all the work on my project and all of the other contributors are either unable or unwilling to participate and I am taking on a larger work loads than I should. Do I just delegate the task and if they mess up it’s on them not me? Should I raise to management? Also how have other consultants effectively managed, other same level consultants?
BCG fish, got an invite to a round 1 interview. They gave me the option to do an “accelerated process” by interviewing this Friday. However it has been a few years since I’ve cased so I’m a little rusty. Is there a disadvantage to doing an interview later this month as opposed to this Friday? Thank you!
Should I continue the interview process for a job that mentioned relocating whenever offices open (possibly next summer) even though I’m not looking to move? I said I’d be open to it but in reality I don’t think I want to move and I’m wondering if they’ll just let me be remote if I do get the offer
Yo anybody still waiting on their Kellogg interview invite? In Chicago, so requested off-campus, and still no news 😖
What do you all think of the pressure to “run really hard” while pregnant right up until maternity leave? I think this is the mentality I see/ feel pressure to follow…
How soon is too soon to leave a firm after starting, if you don't have a sign on bonus? Any bad blood expected? Would it have been better to just renege?

I did the medical exam for my GC last week. It turns out I tested positive for Tuberculosis. Has anyone else gone through this? How does it impact your Greencard application?
Heard some people got H1B lottery results already. Hope we all get selected! Best of luck folks 🤠
Remote work opportunities? I'm looking for firms to look into. Currently in health. I think this will be disruptive (given we can't be on site... and my firm isn't used to delivering remotely).
