First year analyst in consulting setting up my 401k - should I max it?

The general consensus is put in your match, then max Roth IRA, then the full 401k if you can, then brokerage the remainder

Super helpful thank you

Maxing your 401k until you retire practically ensures that you will be a millionaire upon retirement unless you do something real stupid. There’s no reason not to if you can afford it.

YES.

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!
