A couple years ago, I was asked to cover a female coworkers job duties while she was out on maternity leave for 6 months. I covered 90% of her work with our client and was drowning. They specifically gave it to me as the only other woman on the team and she was my same level. She came back from mat leave and got promoted, we were same level, same YOE. Everyone else in our group was promoted who was eligible. How would you have dealt with this? I was devastated. Just now getting over it.
401k advice requested - 25 years old, live in nyc, make 125k. I’ve always maxed my 401k to 19500 with a split of regular and roth. Always do the 6k of Roth IRA too. New firm has no matching policy. I understand the benefits of tax so maxing it is beneficial, however, I’m almost breaking even each month. Is it smart to slow the contributions, keep investing myself so I will have money for a down payment down the road? Don’t want to pull on my 401k if not needed

Roth va 401k investments. Which is better?
Seeking to benchmark 401K investment - I am 37, with cumulative $230K in 401K. Currently investing at 12%. Spouse investing at 6%. Have another $250K in other hard and liquid assets (mostly home equity, and some crypto). Trying to gauge if I need to be more aggressive on 401K or good with current pace.
Should I open an IRA Roth account? Need suggestion on better allocation. Im mid 20s, making 80K pre-tax. My allocation is as followed: 1) 401k account has only $21K. 5% in Roth and 3% in pre-tax, no IRA account yet. My company matches 100% up til 3%, and 50% til 5%. 2) 85K in stocks, including both base and profits 3) 50K in real estate 4) 25K emergency funds. No debt. Should I open an IRA roth account and max it out? Not sure what my goal is. Im 40% high risk high reward, 60% stability.
I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.

Does anyone know the UG entry level comp/salary for Booz Allen Hamilton? The recruiter extended the offer verbally about 2 weeks ago but never sent the actual offer. I emailed the recruiter about it and she asked the range of my other offers and when I told her she stopped responding. I’m pretty sure I know what that means but I’m still curious what it would be if anyone knows.
