Plus, if you’re putting away the full bonus and you’re hitting top or second bucket, you’re probably saving 40-50% of your take home, which really isn’t bad.

At least 50%...but the lockdown has been allowing me to save ~70% post tax. Trying to reach the FI number here. man

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention).
