First person in my family to have a corporate job so I don’t have anyone to ask these questions. I’m wondering how much I should put into my Roth 401K?

I've been teaching for 20 years. I'm a little burned out from being in the classroom? This covid thing has made it harder for me to enjoy being in the classroom. I still have 10 + years until I would feel good about retiring. Would you recommend me moving to an admin position?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
Any roles I could pivot to that don’t involve walkthroughs / a large speaking role? I’ve been dealing with anxiety (more so the past year), and while I work to deal with it, I really need a change in work as it’s not helping at all and I dread it each day.
For those of you who spent a long time in big law (at least 10 years but more along the lines of 15+), when did you know it was time to do something else (maybe in the law, maybe not)? I don’t know if it’s wfh or just the work now, but I’m finding myself getting amazingly frustrated at things that barely bothered me before. I had an argument with opposing counsel last week and was seeing red for hours after that, and little things seem to bother me much much more than they would have before
Hello, I'm working as a senior in Europe and considering doing a secondment for 2 years in the US. Do you think it's worth it to do the CPA if I might decide to remain in the US? I'm currently doing the ACCA, but not sure how easy/hard does it stack up agains the CPA. Also can you tell me when are the exam windows and how the retakes work? Thanks!
If you have a nanny, what does and doesn’t she do? In particular in the household? We have a nanny who is great with the kids, but I am increasingly annoyed by her lack of service attitude towards us parents. E.g. the other day, I asked her to run the dishwasher such that she can clear it before she leaves in the evening and this was her reply: “Dishwasher isn’t part of my main duties as I am hired as a nanny!” Have you come across nannies with such an attitude?
What’s the market range for analyst position (with one year of audit experience) for Deloitte risk and financial advisory controllership group in Los Angeles, including base and sign on bonus? Any insights are appreciated! Thank you!
Is investment banking really that pathetic as a career? Thinking of getting into IB. I have 1 year in tech consulting, and 1 year in strategy consulting. I’ve been working with financial services and automotive clients. It seems easier to break into EB IB than MBB, and my goal is to exit into PE, preferably without getting a top MBA. Is it worth getting my wlb hit for 1-2 years?
Research: What’s the stance taken by your PE firm on work from home vs coming to the office?
After yesterday, this is my thought: I need to check with my students mentally first, the lesson can wait or be done tomorrow. Oxford High School is 21 miles from my school.

I’m a salesforce admin with a couple years of experience. CPQ cert (plus 4 more) with one implementation under my belt and sporadic experience over the past year. I love CPQ and feel I’ve found my niche. What’s the best way to get a CPQ job with so little experience? And what should I expect salarywise? I was already earning $85k plus bonus one year after I started trailhead. I’m not your typical newbie admin.
Know it’s a long shot but any McKinsey or MBB folks willing to case practice with me? Specifically the quantitative part…did not do very well in my recent coaching session on the quant question.
