Looking for some guidance on salary negotiation! I know I am underpaid for my market value, but also know that my current company has better culture, better WLB, slightly better benefits, and I am in great standing/get great opportunities...so realistically I’m not interested in moving.

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA.

Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!
