You ask for more. They say no. You can choose to continue or stop the hiring process. I’d imagine, since you’re unemployed, that you’ll continue either way. What is there to lose? People aren’t rejected because they (try to) negotiate.

Get another offer ASAP

Team member gave her three week notice. I will likely have to pick up majority of her work for the foreseeable future (which is very different from my assigned work).

I recently got a new job that now exceeds the $129,000 limit to be qualified for roth IRA. The company confirmed they have traditional and roth 401k, but do not support any other backdoors. Is my best bet here then to roll over from Roth IRA into Roth 401k, or keep the IRA as is but not invest more? Goal right now is to save as much as I can and max out within 3y for marriage/kids (been already maxing out 401ks throughout career, and recently HSA until the new job, in which I will have an FSA)
