MBB is known for fastest progression to Partner in 6-7 years and SIGNIFICANTLY better comp compared to Big 4.

I recently changed jobs and my new 401K provider - Principal has very limited MF investment options. My prior employer’s 401K was managed by Fidelity and provided me access to a range of MF options.

Second - is there a way I could move my current 401K to another (precious) provider?
