4 years at Accenture were stressful, left to go to Deloitte for $22k salary bump and hope for better culture, then COVID layoff happened. If I try returning to Accenture, which is the best division to try returning to (with generic consulting skills) and why? Not looking for "division spirit/pride," looking for insight into which divisions have better pay/culture/WLB/etc. (constructive replies only please, I realize I sound like a 🤡)

Is it worth changing? what are your thoughts?

How have you guys celebrated career milestones? I told myself when I made manager, I'd finally treat myself and buy my first "big girl" bag. I feel like a big baby, but when I saw comp numbers this year, I cried. I haven't been in the mood to celebrate, but now trying to think of alternatives that might be easier on the wallet.
Did I screw myself by being the first person to bring up salary figures with a startup? I tried to hold firm and make sure they said ballpark range first before I said if those align with my expectations, but she gave a vague “it depends on market, but I can give you a broad range from $45k-$90k for the role.” So I responded with $70k-$80k. Should I have asked for the highest range then of $80k-$90k? Worst case scenario, I don’t want it being revoked.

For Chicago lifers, what’s the rite of passage before a transplant can really consider themselves a Chicagoan (if ever)? I’ve lived here a few years, pay a boatload in taxes, survived the polar vortex, been delayed countless times at ORD, and have eaten a thousand Chicago Dogs (and have opinions about where to find the best). Other than place of birth, what qualities or experiences do you feel make a “Chicagoan”?

Starting to learn more about FIRE and getting really excited about it. When they say save 50% of monthly income, is that including future savings like 401k and HSA? How do you save 50% when living in a HCOL city? My rent alone eats up like 35%. I also have student loans and car loans (which I got before learning about FIRE and finances). Thanks for all the insights!
