Should I be maximizing contributions to only my employer’s Roth 401k (all $19.5k) or should I be splitting the max between Traditional 401k and Roth 401k with varying percentages (i.e. 12% to Roth 401k and 8% to Traditional 401k)?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today.

I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

I’m trying to get into tech as my degree is in Information Systems. Any advice would help!
All, I have been at ~90% index funds (50% VOO, 20% VUG, 20% VGT, 10% VHT) and ~10% cash to invest during bear. This combo has done well for me.

Nobody had decades long recessions since the Great Depression (2008 was less than 2yrs). Why not stay at 90% stocks till 5yrs before I retire? My wife is employed too, so there is that fall back in an emergency.
