How do you know when it’s best to stay in your position?

I’m tired of pivoting. I feel like my job has growth potential and I like my company. Also it seems like my company places a lot of emphasis on experience and I can only get that with time.

On the other hand I work on a small team and there is definitely room for improvement. I think the issue is the size of the team? Like, if there were 2-3 more people it wouldn’t be too bad.

I’m conflicted. Thoughts?

Dumb newbie question regarding Roth 401k rollover. I've never done this before.

Got new job with Roth 401k setup. I'm wondering what the advantages and disadvantages of rolling over vs not (other than the obvious extra mess and management).

Is there a time limit after which I can't roll over? Are there any fees or costs involved with either decision?

My old Roth 401k is performing well and I kind of want to be lazy and just leave it be. I won't be doing anything with it for 20 years anyway.
