I need to book a Marriott hotel on the West side of Manhattan for the 4th of July evening. Are there any where I would have a good chance of being able to use a Marriott Suite Night Award? .
Took a lot from me mentally to leave consulting because I had a great support system there but I didn’t want to travel anymore because of a growing family. I joined a series-C startup and it’s been a dumpster fire of politics and incompetence and I totally regret joining. I saw some red flags but things only got terrible due to the economic situation with tech/startups. Manager is horrible and we’ve had constant reorgs. With a new kid on the way, the uncertainty is killing me. Any advice?
I have an offer in GDS as manager in consulting with a rank 32. Can someone please explain what this 32 means ? I am curious to understand the chances of any travel opportunities.
The first number on my scale has been a ’2’ for the past ten years, but not today. My life has really changed while not having to travel.
Taking my first flight after a year!! I used to go through the international terminal for faster lines. Is that still the best way or just easier to go to the south terminal ??
Just arrived to Sydney from Chicago with my wife and 2 sons both under 2. Escorted to hotel quarantine and spending these 2 weeks trying to figure out if I would/could/should make the move to Sydney permanent. Wife and kids are Australian citizens. Made a list of pros and cons- cons column is empty - the only concern is work. How are you folks doing with COVID economy? Are there significant downsizing? How’s the projected technology consulting pipelines down here?
If anyone is interested in taking a summer trip to Myrtle Beach from 7/29-8/5, I am renting out my timeshare with Marriott's OceanWatch Villas at Grande Dunes. This resort is right on the beach and offers many fun activities for the whole family! The two-bed, two-bath condo has a fully furnished kitchen and can fit up to 8 people. I am ideally looking for someone to rent it out for the entire week for about 3K total. Message me for more information!
Is it just me or the wait times on the platinum elite Marriott helpline insanely long (compared to SPG?)
Ladies, I agreed to get take on a project with a hybrid travel schedule but after kicking it off, my SM is expecting a lot more travel than a few workshops. Full 3 nights, some back to back weeks, and every 3 weeks for sure. He’s also expecting co-location in between… how did we get here overnight? Also I have kids and honestly can’t put this kind of pressure on my spouse - pickups/drop offs, dinners etc. it’s just not fair on our family. How do I manage his expectations?
Anyone willing to trade Hilton points for Marriott points? Want to extend my stay on a study for this weekend (rolling off Fri so no LFO) but they only have a Hilton here...

Currently a JR PM at an ad agency in NYC. Working on social media for my client. Really don't enjoy it. Previous experience is in experiential marketing and really loved that because I knew humans would interact, touch, and feel the things I helped create.
Not attached to advertising, I crave work that makes me think critically and isn't redundant. I am a huge people person and love interacting with people. I am wondering if anyone has career paths or style of work that is more inline with me 🙂
