I have 40 United PlusPoints from my Platinum status that I won’t be using this year - looking to sell to anyone interested! I’m not planning to travel internationally and it’s not worth it to me to upgrade domestic. If you’re interested, shoot me a DM! Thanks
Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?
Anyone started antidepressants since this pandemic/wfh started? I’m the type that needs to be moving/traveling, and with WFH for the past 6 months I’ve started impacting my marriage by consistently trying to find ways to get away from home (not my family, but the house). My wife told me that it feels like I’m trying to change her by grasping for straws (pushing us to travel/hike) that I think will make this better. After doing some googling I think I might be suffering from depression.

AirPods on planes? I took a teams call on jetblue - incoming video was great - using AirPods. That said, no one on the call could really hear me. Is there some kind of interference with the jet engine noise?

What are the top 5-6 roles at Infosys (title wise). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also is it a good place to work in NYC relative to the big 4?
Started a new role within my org <1 year ago (been with the co several years) and have received incredibly positive feedback from many people about my performance so far, including my manager. I expressed my desire to revisit my compensation (off-cycle) because I am by all accounts exceeding expectations for my role and my manager was very supportive and encouraged me to provide them with a write up of what I want and why. Any advice? I’ve researched salary comps already
So DB apparently thinks folks should be taxed for the "privilege" of WFH https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-11-11/you-should-pay-a-tax-for-working-from-home-deutsche-bank-says But I just want to expense my meals during busy season.

Anyone else delaying purchase because you’re worried about layoffs? Passed on a Subbie this week because I’m worried about the future.
Interview tomorrow and recruiter encouraged me to have notes out to keep track of my stories (5 interviews, 1 hour each). Should I acknowledge and ask each interviewer if it's ok for me to have notes out? I feel like it'd feel weird for me to very obviously glance at my screen after a question every once in a while without acknowledging what's going on or asking permission.
Anyone looking to practice case interviews?I have one in next two weeks and i am looking for people to practice it live with.
Corp Strat at a Fortune 50 or MBB? I'm not at a MBB. I don't think i'd stay for partner at MBB the only benefit I could see is coming back to a F50 firm at a higher position and paygrade.
Has any of the MBB been doing much work in public sector since the onset of pandemic? Would they be willing to hire someone with exclusively public sector experience of +6 years and an MBA from Canada? Asking because during the MBA recruitment, public sector experience was not helpful as MBB didn't focus there a lot.
Odd question, but I’m starting a new job in a few days. Am I able to use the private medical insurance at my new company straight away? Or do I have to wait for probation period to finish?

What monitor would you recommend for WFH situation assuming a IB/fund role?

Some wider ones that have been recommended to me were Dell Ultrasharp 34 curved USB-C and Samsung Ultrawide 34
