How much money is enough? We fish come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have taken a multitude of career paths around the world. I’m curious to hear how high of an annual pretax income (cont’d)
Both SO and I are new in our careers, about a year+ in. We don’t make the amount of money that some of you all make (yet) but we’re doing above average compared to our peers just a year out of school. Looking for advice as we start our personal finance and investment journey: pay off consumer debt before maxing out 401k? And where does student debt and/or mortgage fit into the picture? FWIW, both of our parents probably won’t be able to retire anytime soon, so can’t get much advice from family.
Data strategy question: My Fintech organization has 2 banking products, both of which have similar features, but one caters to smaller banks and credit unions while the other focuses on the top 100 banks in the US. The product and engineering teams for both these products operate independently and rarely use any common technology vendors (except AWS, our common infra partner). Does it make sense to have a common data strategy and a single data lake across this products? What are the benefits?

Third trimester pregnant lady here -- last flight before maternity leave! Jumping for joy 🌟
Can't decide if this thinking is crazy or smart: Staying in consulting for another 1-1.5 years for good maternity healthcare benefits and smoother pathway to ramp off and back on work, with opportunity to extend leave further with limited professional risk (e.g., in corporate a backfill might become your permanent fill). Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized

I have my first interview with McKinsey coming up, from the practice cases on the website it seems like their case structure is quite standardized. I am particularly struggling with the initial case structure, the solutions are always very targeted and specific. I guess Victor Cheng‘s LOMS ruined me, because I feel like “product“ “company” “competitors” is just not going to cut it... any advice how to become better at MECE and structuring frameworks?

I think if someone has served the country, they should be granted Veteran's Day off as a paid holiday. Not forced to use their accrued PTO, or sick day. It's a holiday they earned for the rest of their lives. Call me crazy but this makes sense to me.
