Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy.

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA.

Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.

My brother is applying to medical school, and apparently being AAPI/Asian/Indian yields one being bucketed into an over represented minority, so would need far more merit than means and medians, due to the high performance of the bucket. I started wondering, throughout my brother and my life, if being Asian had ever had any help- in my childhood, my Asian friends were cut throat with everything- volunteering ops or internship/family help. Brother made a comment that he wished he wasn’t Asian

I am so grateful to have a job right now but I am really struggling. I’ve been at D for a little under a year and have been really unhappy with my experience. In particular, my current project and my direct supervisor make me feel unbelievably incompetent and under appreciated. Given COVID, there is little flexibility to roll off. I’ve tried to stick it through but I’m at a breaking point. Any suggestions on how to make the best of it? Or next steps?

I'm currently a TVC at Google and was contacted by a Google recruiter who didn't realize that I'm currently working at Google. When I told her about my current role, she said she's not sure if I can be considered and has been non responsive on my follow ups. What exactly is the policy in this case? Would my applications for a FTE role be simply not considered too?
