Boston flight cancelations hitting anyone else? Not sure how to get to client site on time now 😓
My partner & I are flying back from Aruba to the US on a delta SkyMiles hidden city/ skip lagged fair before getting on our revenue flights to client sites. Can I cancel our second legs after landing?
United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
If you travel by AA all the time and DFW, Austin, SFO are the frequent travel cities is Citi AAdvantage card better than the AmEX platinum card for lounge access ?

I always find it funny that when you apply for a job directly to a Goverment agency or commercial client the salary they offer is way less than what they are actually paying to a third party consulting firms or a contractor in Australia. I never my head around why is so much pay difference?
I’ve now had 2 instances where a tech startup calls me the day after final round to tell me feedback is positive and ask logistics questions (relocation, start date, vague comp discussion). Then they reject me the next day saying “some discussions happened in the room that didn’t come up in written feedback” Wtf is going on.

Has anyone ever exited Technology/Digital type consulting roles into something more business / commercially oriented? If so, how did you go about it and what sort of roles were open to you? I fell into Tech and it has never really been of huge interest to me. My background is 10 years experience at IBM > EY-Parthenon > AlixPartners with an MBA in between.

Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?
