We’d like to take our first travel holiday since covid with our son who will be right around 2 yo. Considering asking our babysitter to join so dad and I can actually enjoy ourselves some of the time. We both work very hard and don’t consider time with toddler to be relaxing! But we’re also wondering 1. Is this too bougie? 2. How do we keep costs from spiraling out of control, Eg. 3 bedroom airbnb or two hotel rooms significantly more expensive/or just not as nice if it’s within range. TY!
In btw round 1 & R2 interviews with firm 1, there's a gap of 25 days. I got a interview at another firm during this period. Shld I tell the HR at firm 1 about the same in next intrvw? If yes, what to tell & what not? Also, in btw those 25 days, I had put in my papers at current firm bcoz needed time off due to personal reasons. I am afraid if I bring this up, they'll take it as if I am lyin/that I have offers somewhere else (bcoz that's when you resign) [cant hide bcoz will hv 2 tell sometime]

PwC's Time and Expense processes and technology (both GFS and Deltek - I've seen both sides) are utter shit. That is all.
Should I go to Booz Allen as an “Associate” for about 50% more pay? I’m a SA at 70k.. Worst part is that I must move 3 hours away and must be on client site at all times, while KPMG is super flexible and I wfh all the time even before Covid. Also, I feel like “branding” wise it might be a downgrade. What is the KPMG equivalent to Associate at Booz? What is the typical YoE for Booz Associates? Any Booz/ex-Booz folks on here to help give direction?

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.
