Annual conferences getting everyone together probably most impactful in building the network. Junior folks especially love it. Getting people in touch with potential mentors in informal settings has been impactful

Not trying to start an argument, actually just curious, but isnt the whole pronoun thing being taken overboard? I would think it really only applies to people who are transitioning because you want to be respectful of that person. But like…old bald man Bob in accounting…we know ur a dude. Also, I have a gender neutral name myself (im a guy) but couldn’t care less if someone accidentally thought I was a woman over an email or even in person. Curious to hear peoples thoughts.

Do you show your human side at work? Also share your gender if you’re comfortable. I’m F and I generally do, but wondering if this is not perceived well. For example, sometimes I talk to my peers about my weekend plans, sometimes about how tired I am because of work, I recently had surgery and shared with them details about it.

I'm switching jobs and considering whether I want to roll over my 401(k). I have about $220k in my plan. Considering rolling it into an existing Fidelity IRA with a balance of about $50k. Since October of 2020, I've paid about $880 in "plan administrative fees" to my 401(k) provider as well as the fund expense ratios. It looks like Fidelity does not charge administrative fees on IRA accounts, so that seems to make it a no brainer, plus the investment options are much broader.What am I missing?
