How much do you guys have saved for retirement? Turning 30 soon and had a mini-crisis on If I’m saving enough. For reference, I have $110k in a Roth IRA (did 401k rollover during MBA) and $10k in a 401k. Saw articles that show 1-1.5x salary in retirement by 30, which makes me feel behind the curve?

People with kids, how has the pandemic affected their social life and how have they adapted? My 13 year old brother is doing zoom school and has not seen a single one of his friends in person since July.

Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.
Been in consulting for a year now as an Associate with 1.5 years prior experience. Possibly could be promoted at my firm this year. Have an opportunity to work at getting a job with a FAANG.

And what are generally FAANG signing bonuses for non-engineering roles in engineering.
It’s so nice that every agency laying off people, have those left standing (and other agencies) trying to hustle jobs for their unemployed friends, but there are also a ton of people who were unemployed prior to Covid...so no severance, job hunting lot longer, and not earning income for longer time...hurting even MORE due to quarantine.

Is it worth billing actual hours to projects? Have a call with project manager and wondering the best approach.
