BCG has autoconversion to Roth

They are not the same. Converting to Roth 401k and being able to roll into Roth IRA have slight differences in advantages and disadvantages.

Trying to extract the most out of this to improve. I'm a bit confused since I did provide my individual actions and rationale that led to the outcome.
