South beach sucks in general. Stay in brickell

like

South Beach is a tourist trap if you stay at a crappy hotel and hang out on Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road. Not if you want an actual beach vacation and stay at a hotel like the W or Ritz, or even mid beach (where I lived for years and still have a place).

The only thing there is to do in Brickell is dining, shopping, and the pool. Unless you have the funds to charter a boat or yacht. Most people want to go to the beach, in the ocean. And the private beach at the Mandarin Oriental sucks.

OP, you can stay on the beach and then Uber to Brickell or downtown for dinner one night and/ or Wynwood or the Design District. There are also great restaurants on the beach.

Edition is better

Edition isn’t an option. Either W or Ritz

Can’t go wrong with either W or Ritz

OP- stay at the W. Hip, younger crowd, party/lounge scene and still have great service

I like the Setai a bit better. The Edition or Faena in mid-beach are ever better. Or the Fontainebleau if you get a suite.

Wouldn’t stay in Brickell if I was looking for a proper beach vacation.

I should add, I’m getting a great rate at the Ritz and W ($400 per night) so I’m debating between those two. Appreciate the other hotels, but unless it’s $400 or less, Marriott is what I need to stick to.

W for the lounge and party scene

I feel like I should wear a shirt to work that says “read your assistants emails before asking questions”. One of my bosses asked for a travel change and I sent them the times and prices per class types.
Their next three emails? Answered one question per email. So after they said time I asked which class, they asked the prices (which I copy pasted from the previous message) and then they asked if the prices were less for the other flights, and then they chose one. Five hours later. READ!

I discovered they were going to be paid to appear in a famous Hispanic TV show, where a "judge" receives a case, hears the plaintiffs and defendants and renders a verdict. But of course, it's all fake and payed 😂 turns out she wanted me to go there (even though I don't work for that TV network) so she's sure she'll be paid at the end of the show. Wth did I just do.

Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4?

I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC.

Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft
