Used Skiplagged to book a United flight. Hidden city on a one way saved $300 per person, so was worth it. I know conventional wisdom is to not connect to MileagePlus, but it should be fine if it's just one time, right? Seems like I could just say someone in my party felt sick so we missed second leg.
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA

I often use corporate rates for personal travel and in a sample size of 20 hotels across Hyatt and Marriott, I’ve only been asked for my work badge once at a Courtyard (or possibly Fairfield). I’m leaving my firm soon, but tempted to continue to use the corporate rate after I leave since they so infrequently check. Has anyone had any experience with this?

Getting a decent offer from Rivian but still not a good jump from my current base. They don’t have a concept of bonus as not yet profitable. Never wanted to work for an Automotive company. Any suggestions?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

I had my onsite 5 weeks ago, and recruiter reached out last week saying I cleared Hiring Committee, and that he’s waiting for VP approval before we move on to compensation talk. How long does the VP approval typically take? And what is the probability of rejection at this stage? Also, how many more review stages are there before I am made a written offer (assuming I clear VP approval)? Thanks!

Employee will have to bear 10% of the claim and insurer will bear the other 90%. For dependents 20-80 Copay. Are the benefits are good enough to consider copay and subscribe ? Please Suggest.
