@PWC1 1. Buy a ticket with a connection in the city that you really want to go to 2. After you arrive at connection city (leave) don't board remaining leg(s). Note: typically only works with one-ways and won't work if you checked a bag

what's a hidden city ticket?

Nothing warm about LA right now. Burrr🌬

and a great way to lose status

@ACN3 you obviously can't do it every week. I do it a couple times a year. Especially for non-billable travel.

Good point about tourist travel. Had to give in and buy the tickets. Hope my client understands...

Hi all, I accepted a position at my current company that I've been at for four years as a PM starting at 95k flat. I'm located SLC so I feel like the salary is quite low. I think I will need to leave my current company to be paid fairly. Does anyone have advice on how to move externally when you've been at the same company for so long? Are there any mentors out there who could help connect me with the tech scene?

Just accepted a position as Sr. Program manager at a clean energy tech start up. They offered 140k base + 10k bonus. Also provided the option to move to California for +35% cost of living change. Now remote frm atl.

150k seems low for ATL. The houses are as expensive as Sacramento CA. I like the idea of California.

Doing my booth mba program, will likely pivot to investments or mbb. I low key heard ATL mbb offices have shortage of feeder school consultants..maybe I have a shot here.

Pros:

- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.

- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work

Cons:

- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
