Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.

Hi, I’m looking to switch into marketing (entry level), as consulting is not aligned with my skill set and passions. Does anyone know of any ad agencies in LA that have good work-life balance, good pay, PTO, great culture, training? Your help means more than you know!!! Looking to do informational interviews and try to network my way in, as I feel the barrier to entry was much harder than anticipated. Anything helps, thank you so much! :)

I told myself I would not be that person who quits during busy season but I am reaching my limit with PA.

Curious do you guys celebrate Christmas, other holidays? And not looking for religious bashing. Just curious for eg. I am big on Christmas/ holiday spirit. I get a tree, lighting, gifts, sweaters. But similarly I have family who get very mad at wishing Merry Christmas. I am curious where you guy’s heads are at. Any cultural differences between eg black vs Arab vs south Asian Muslims etc.

At what net worth (incl. of all liquid and non-liquid assets except the house you live in) do you feel secure of your future where you do not care about job security? Assume not much liability - house/car paid off, you already paid for kids education. So its just you and your spouse living normal (?) life. Is $4M a good target where with 5% return you get $200K per year which in my opinion is more than enough for 2 people? I know most people in this bowl already have more net worth already.

I've been planning a vacation for my 5 year wedding anniversary and recently floated the dates I was looking to take off to my Principal and he responded that he's never seen anyone take 2 weeks unless it was for a wedding/honeymoon. Regardless, if thats true, given that precovid, he (who was a VP at the time) and my MD (who was a principal at the time) used to take 2 weeks every summer, is a 2 week vacation excessive in the PE space? I've been here 5 years and feel like I've earned it.
