Is it my imagination or do they put the more attractive flight attendants in first class?
Looking for baby moon recommendations for early March. Obviously Covid is an issue, but hoping it’ll be better by then (at least this omicron wave may be over) somewhere warm, and not too far of a flight from DC area, tho if it’s affordable we are willing to fly. Trying to stay in the states since pregnant. Any reccs? I’ll be about 20 weeks pregnant. I know it’s early but it’s the only time we’ll be able to take before the baby comes.

Have been interviewing — at first just to see what the pay would be/for fun — but now I am really interested and think I’d jump ship if I got it and pay is almost triple what I make now. I know if I leave my partner will be left with ALL of my work and now help and he’s been a tremendous mentor and I really appreciate him. Should I tell him now I’m interviewing. I don’t wanna leave him drowning and leave in a bad way because I really do appreciate him. Any advice?

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?
I am about to get an offer. When I mentioned about having to leave my year end bonus, recruiter asked for documentation for last years bonus. I don’t want to provide that because : 1.
