How do I max out my 2020 401k contribution of $19.5k before it ends (does it end 12/31/20)? I wasn’t tracking my contribution rate before but now I realized I can definitely put in a lot more but if it’s pay check to pay check contribution, I won’t be able to max out by year end since not many weeks left to the year to make up.... can I drop a lump sum somehow to max out and reach $19.5k?

Also, is the culture different? ….I really dislike working with hyper competitive people, most in consulting are great to work with, but there seems to be a solid 30% that are bad humans
