Mercury is wonderful. I tried to do my expense and time sheet today. It shows me no authorization. Best control !!!!
It feels so nice to be traveling internationally. Using the Batman for its intended purpose. Back at ORD United Club with a decent beer, then two months traversing Europe.
Thinking of dropping my United Club card. Use it primarily for lounge access, but I also have a Corp Amex Platinum card which gets me into Centurion and partner lounges. Contd...
Posted yesterday about getting into a wreck. My insurance has determined that I was not at fault. So the other insurance will likely pay. Do I ask them to reimburse me for the cars diminished value ??
Hi fishes,do ey gds reimburse monthy internet?
What kind of things do you do to keep yourself entertained/occupied when you get stuck in a shitty city for work travel?

Anyone has recent experience about visa processing timelines, particularly H1b from interview to passport in hand?
Nothing reminds me why I only fly Delta like flying American. A serious and heartfelt apology to those of you who endure this regularly...
Can I ask Marriott to give me access to the lounge if I’ll be stay there for at least 20 nights in the next month? I don’t have any status yet.
Don't hire Davies and Associates LLC for any of your visa application. They missed my H1b deadline and the reason they gave is that they didn't check their email and messages.
United needs cash to pay for better PR. Upvote if you think they should relinquish some gates to Delta @ORD!
Delta Medallion - NYC based and will be close to renewing plat this year. Miles run or take gold/miles and get a head start on next year?
Polling time: Has anyone recently got Administrative Processsing when trying to renew your H1B visa? If so, how long did it take to get it cleared? Try to assess if it is worth the risk to renew.
Working in Tokyo and the only American/consultant. Unlimited expense account. Consulting lottery?
I have a long flight coming up (with two layovers, and one of the flights is 8 hours long — red eye). My daughter is 2yo and I’m debating whether we should take the car seat with us or not. She’d be more comfortable in the plane and would be easier to “restrain” her… But the thought of carrying that huge and heavy car seat across four airports doesn’t sound very appealing. Any advise?
Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November? I have a few weeks between jobs, concerned about getting Covid in another country and not being able to come back on time. I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated
A partner submitted my resume to her firm’s recruiting department and I got called in for an interview. I’m researching the interviewers and one is the hiring attorney. Is that a good sign or routine? (I haven’t worked in big law to know.)
Is there any benefit of doing six Sigma, black belt , if you are not actively involved in quality. Also any other skills you guys recommend for better switch

What to wear for a google interview? F here, so far I have only been to interviews in dress/ blazer. Can you please help? Should I wear jeans, blouse blazer? Senior Product manager role.
Taking out a female friend and her one year old baby for brunch. Maybe this is a silly question, but do I ask the restaurant for a high chair for the kid? Or does the kid stay in the stroller while we eat? Clearly I’m a clueless friend here!
How soon should I start working with a recruiter to lateral? I want to stay at my current firm through December to get my bonus. Is reaching out to recruiters now a waste of time?
Which agency offers the most time off?
Does Deloitte start GC process at senior level and is the PERM file for senior level or manager? Seems like EY’s policy is to file at senior level but for manager position. Wanted to understand Deloitte’s process.
From a compensation perspective - who makes more money? Investment Bankers, FAANG product managers, or MBB consultants? Over time, who is most likely to make more money?
Senior MDs ganging up on me (in a new role) on some false accusations (although, we could have done better) on my project saying was handled badly. Boss is out. What can I do?
Anyone in KPMG FDD want to refer me for an experience associate position in San Fran?!? Would like to connect before to go over some items as well.
I’ve been a jr at my agency for one year. How should I approach my manager about a promotion? I’ve been taking on a much larger role the past 5 months (cont...)
I’m the only person from my firm at the client site and having trouble connecting with people at client (people mostly just see me as an external “intruder”). Not personally bothered, but worried that it hurts perception/client relations. Any advice on how to get more social traction (e.g. get invited to lunch and stuff)?
Interviewing with a company I’m excited about and they requested to have the next level (I believe final level) be pushed to the second week of January since they’re team is overwhelmed. I agreed and suggested times and am waiting to hear back. Meanwhile I had another company reach out this past week for a role I’m less excited over. They’ve already reached out for my final interview round this week. I already disclosed that I’m waiting to hear from a company I’ve been interviewing with. Cont’d.
Maternity leave is ending soon and we'll be hiring a nanny. Any recommendations on services to facilitate payroll, taxes, workers comp? Would love to hear examples of what people are using. Thanks.
A campaign my partner and I thought of went into testing, but died in the process. Same idea, concept, name and execution used on another client/ campaign just a month after, that we weren’t on. Few people from the old team were on this new campaign. We’re disappointed about it and wondering if this is a common thing that happens?
Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!
Was a bitch? My coworker routinely asks me how I am doing, what I’m working on, if everything is ok, joking that I’m starting my week on Wednesday because I’ve been remote for two days, etc etc. I find it distracting and invasive so today I told them to please stop asking questions that put me on the spot. Was I a bitch?
