How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?
Need 6 Marriott nights to titanium (spend doesn’t matter). 1 - would any hotel manager cut you a deal? (Ie if 6 nights is 60k; let me pay 30k and get the nights and I won’t use the room?); 2 - where are cheapest Marriott hotels? I found 10k per night in burbs of Chicago? 3 - would any cheap Marriott let me run this scam remotely? (Ie call Abilene Texas, check me in without my showing up)
My company gives me a card for all travel related expenses. Does this mean I can’t claim the points?

Good Marriott hotel in Vegas for Christmas time? Platinum elite member hoping for upgrades.

My AA flight got delayed by more than 2 hours. There were no weather issues. Any points for this?
I was saving up my PTO to plan a trip to home country in December. Now the immigration team has started an immigration case so I cannot travel in December. I know as per policy I can only carry forward 10 days of PTO. Is it worth to try to get an exception? I know policies like these are non-negotiable. Has anyone ever tried anything like this and got a positive result?
If you achieve new platinum elite status on Marriott this week, how long does that last for?

Anyone wear allbirds with a suit for travel? Don’t want to pull off the airport bathroom change, but don’t want to wear my dress shoes either. I’d hate to end up in the people of the airport bowl lol
Has anyone successfully gotten MQD + MQS/MQMs retroactively applied to your Delta account when booking flights for your SO to join you on a trip? Doing Delta status challenge & curious if this works.
What do people typically do when they need to book weekend travel, but aren’t sure whether they’ll be staffed on a travel project at that time?

Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Has anyone transitioned to a fully-remote role? How did you go about it, or did the company offer the option on their own? Last thing in the world I want to do is commute back to NYC again.
11 applications —> 7 moved to interviews —> 4 went to final rounds —> 3 offers. 6-8 weeks from start to finish. Peace out, Strategy Consulting - it’s been real. Consider a career coach if you’re serious about moving on - drastically improved my conversion rate.
Signing bonus commitment date is coming up. Should I provide notice to quit now knowing that I’m going to leave after the date passes? I don’t want to hurt the project but I don’t want to screw myself

How much notice is required before taking parental leave at BCG? Is there something required per rule or is it more just best practice to give 60/90 days notice to give folks time to plan/schedule around it?
I'm renting co-working space for a remote job in a building specializing in providing startups with dynamically sized workspace. Our county, city, and the building owners themselves all have mask mandates in place for individuals regardless of vax status. I've reported most of the people on the floor to the building admin for violating the mandates multiple times. How many more until I should escalate to the city?
Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with. By contrast, people under the age of 50 comprise 7% of COVID deaths. Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.
I hate that “this needs more diversity” is code for add more black people...🤦🏾♀️ 😥when will people realize that diversity is not just black and white!
Interviewed on the brand side with a very well known beauty company. They wanted to take my 5 years of experience and only pay $65k (NYC). The recruiter said I should really be flexible and be open to a salary cut if I want to move to the brand side. I know this such bullshit having done other interviews in the past.
Hi people, I am going to have the interview with TRS - Financial services team at EY london. This job is basically assesing the Non-performance loans portfolios of the banks. The recruiters said it will be a case study lasting for 2.5 hours. The case will not be given in advance. They only said it is a about a fictious bank. Any one in this group has any suggestions or thoughts about this upcoming case study?
