Not MECE. Eg you could have a Roth 401k. No simple answer though for which is best between Roth vs Traditional or 401k vs IRA. Much has been written on the topic. Maybe do some research and come back with more targeted questions?

What are benefits packages like outside the Big 4, particularly at MANGA (I guess that’s the new acronym with Meta), Salesforce, etc?

I’m paying $3796/yr for a family HDHP where the total OOP max is $7600 ($3800 for individual). D throws in $1k to HSA if you max personal.
