Feel as if I’m constantly behind peers in terms of career progression (e.g. MBB/ FAANG) despite having a decent-ish background (tier 2 consulting and now at top tier finance company in strategy role). I find that the companies I’ve worked at have very set progression based on tenure, with no room for negotiation. I’m really ambitious/ hardworking and I am not sure where to go that would match my goals of career progression. Is it just MBB/ FAANG or is there anywhere else? Any ideas?

Car got totaled. ACV came out to 15.8k loan was sitting at 19k. Insurance is going to pay off the loan. Every1 is telling me “insurance is going to get you a new car”, is wrong. That’s actually not the case. Insurance told me my benefit is to get to walk away with no financial burden. My question is, is it worth it to get another car? Dont need to drive for work (at least until year end), i also carry 6k cc debt. Should i get my credit score up first? Its at 640 now.
