Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.

I'm trying to leave my job in big 4 (2nd yr). But, I don't feel adequate enough to try for senior positions (even entry-level). I feel so 'cause I see myself as an impostor: I don't know what I'm doing. I went to univ. and I'm ashamed to have trouble remembering certain basic concepts. Somehow I just survived, yet this feeling still remains to this day. It's clear I am not fit to work here. TBH, I think I got it by luck. I'm frustrated trying to change jobs yet I feel like I'm not good.
