Depends what their goals are. Most that I see love the job and really enjoy sticking around solving the fantastic problems they deal with

Most of the big 4 have mandatory retirement ages at 60 and minimum retirement around 56-57. Earlier than that and you give up a ton in pension so I think an “earlier” retirement probably has more to it (health reasons, independently wealthy, or a joint decision to exit the firm).

I plan on retiring before 50. Only a few years to go

No. Money is too good. Multi-generational wealth.

Just joined a smaller firm who uses Paychex for their 401k provider. I noticed they do not offer too many options for funds to invest in and seems lower end than my prior Schwab 401k offered. 1) Anyone have experience with Paychex and have similar observations? 2) I’m leaning towards doing enough 401k pretax contribution on Paychex to get the company match and then do the rest as a Roth IRA to obtain better investments. Any other options I’m not thinking of?
