I left Deloitte. Should I just carry around my old business cards and will that bypass all of this?

I had the W South Beach try and pull the rate after I showed them badge (with no company name on it), LinkedIn bio, phone email mailbox , offered to have them email me at firm email and show them email, and computer with firm logo wallpaper. Had to escalate to manager to let me use the rate because the front desk person was a moron who seemed to think only a business card is acceptable.

Yeah, PwC 1, but.... this was Miami.

It was for a Conrad in Asia

Luxury hotels in Asia seem to do this more regularly than others. Often they want the business card because they want to try to directly market beyond the corporate code.

Do all of us a favor and call the Titanium desk and complain? You’ll get points and hotels will get a data point that they need to not look too closely.

Business card or your work email address (at least Bonvoy takes this)

Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!
