Remember the good old Thursday’s heading out of the client site and smashing vodka sodas in the sky club before flying home. Please take me back....
My partner & I are flying back from Aruba to the US on a delta SkyMiles hidden city/ skip lagged fair before getting on our revenue flights to client sites. Can I cancel our second legs after landing?
it’s ridiculous that our worth is determined by reinvest and internal work. i cannot stand that consulting is dual sided with the client work during the day and proposal/product development at night! is it like this in industry jobs?
I rolled off a project and after 3 weeks they staffed me back. Just the thought of going back gave me a headache and a knot in my stomach :(. Just wanted to vent.
Need points help: current Delta gold, only 7000 MQMs from plat for 2017 but current project ends soon and expecting to fly Star Alliance. Should I stop before hitting plat to carry MQMs for 2018?
Has anyone come across this thing from the client playbook that insists on never using negative words like "don't" or "never" or "can't" in headlines or taglines? So something like "You're not yourself when you're hungry" would be dismissed outright. Who's teaching them this narrow-mindedness?

Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients. The partner and I have kept in touch since I joined my new firm and I feel like his invitation is a great networking opportunity since the client (who I have worked with before) is on a number of boards. Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.

Got notified that my EAD card is being delivered to my place. Didn’t submit my medical record with I-485 so I’m hoping to receive the RFE for that soon now that EAD is almost here.

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
