Hi ladies, looking for advice on pivoting my career. Currently primary engineer for a system that supports 25k users across 200+ offices. I'm bored with IT. I'm a Jill of many trades, networking, wireless, voice, etc. I'm currently working on learning various netops tools.

I'm working on putting together a 5 year plan to move to 100 percent remote because my husband wants to retire and move. Advice?
Question regarding traditional vs Roth 401k decision. I joined a new firm and they allow for Roth 401k and Mega back door Roth contribution. I’m 26 years old with a salary of 135k + bonus and have a traditional IRA (previous 401k) and a Roth IRA that are similar worth (50k each) I’m trying to decide how I should go about my new 401k with my new firm. Should I go with traditional 401k for the tax relief and after-tax back door to my Roth IRA? Thoughts, suggestions please. TIA
Do you have any rules of thumb for what to do with bonuses? After taxes & 401k contributions, I’m trying to decide what to do- looking at balancing: 1)immediate gratification 2)long term wealth creation & 3)mid term savings such as expensive home projects and/or future down payments on next home. Sitting on ~$30k post tax/401k bonus and trying to decide how to allocate across 3 areas. Also deciding if it makes sense to set a standard for me and my wife(similar comp) to follow for future bonuses.

Opinions Wanted My Dad passed away recently and my Mom finally heard back on the value of his Deloitte pension. Around 350k. Combined with life insurance and retirement this puts my Mom in a much more comfortable position than she was expecting and mentioned she wants to use some of the money to pay down my siblings and my remaining student loan debt as she holds a lot of guilt that we had to take loans at all. Between 25-50k for each of us. Would you take the money?
