Need advice: I just started this week at my new company and prior to joining I brought tickets with my friends together for a one week vacation to the West Coast. It will be the week of 7/4. Now I just talked to my manager about taking the week off, but found out we are actually really busy that week. There were some compromise, but still not ideal. I have really 3 options: change my group flight, cancel, or work during the vacation. Any other options or advice will be helpful!

I scheduled a lunch with me, a senior partner, and a junior associate because, when I was an associate, the senior partner I worked most closely with would spend time with me every month or so to go over my workload, how I'm doing, whether I'm being challenged too much/not enough, etc. Basically he'd ask me what I needed either from him or the firm. I truly believe it kept me from burning out. Senior partner just told junior associate that the lunch is to discuss his f*ck ups. 🤦🏼♀️

I keep a chart of Personal Capital and Mint data over time. The top lines (blue & yellow) are Net Worth, and bottom lines (red & green) are Investmt Accts only. The only reason NW has stayed relatively stable compared to Accts is because of home equity. The biggest losers are my ARK funds 😭
Are any top consulting firms hiring for experienced analysts currently? I know ACN and some others are cyclical for resources 2-3 years out of college, but I’m looking to make a move sooner than fall
