Roth because 1. I am early in my career and hope to make more later 2. Eventually taxes will need to go up to pay for the ballooning federal deficit

My financial advisor tells me to Roth. You should talk to a legit financial advisor

Agree with D1. OP - Are you looking to convert your existing 401k to a Roth? Or just contribute to a Roth 401k?

Contribute probs

F1 OPT holder here. This is my current financial state. Completed my loans, have a 6 month emergency fund in Discover savings account, started contributing to 401k from this month (Ey matches only after a year and I didnt have enough knowledge before) 1.

I’m eligible for 401k %match from my employer on aug 1 2021. The max total amount I could get from them for 2021 is ~$420. I plan on maxing out & my 401k has an aggressive strategy. Would you wait to contribute until later in the year in order to maximize the match, or invest early in the year for the compound interest gains? Am I wrong to think the latter?

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.

Hey all - need some important advice. I feel like I under-bargained base/starting salary at Slalom. Got 79K base with up to 8% bonus in a low-to-medium cost of living area as an AC. I'm 1 year out of college (top 40 uni) with ~1 year of NON-consulting experience (mostly programming/software dev. experience at some small companies). How should I expect to increase the salary up to six-figures for the next 2-3 years?
