best way to gauge what WLB/hours are during the interview process? in the past i’ve asked about team culture but their answers never end up revealing much about this. i feel like it’s frowned upon to come right out and ask about hours, but not sure how else to bring this up

Ladies, I’m posting here so that the person involved won’t see this post. Last year, I worked under this one first year senior guy. One day, he told me that to him, his staff are like puppies, if they pee on the floor (aka mess up on something) then he gotta be the one cleaning up then proceed to call me one of his puppies. Is it normal that I’m offended by this analogy and considered it condescending? English wasn’t my first language so not sure if this is acceptable by American culture.

Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
