Being from a non CS background and having experience in only frontend tech stack ( javascript,angular, Typescript) is it worth trying to switch to a product based company? I am not that confident while it comes to coding and have no knowledge as of now on DSA and system design. Need genuine suggestions and advice on whether i start preparing for an sde role by learning dsa and system design or continue on the front-end route and strengthen my basics on web development .

I am also in FE with react and JS.. I have started my journey with SAP (Product based) and have been giving interviews in many product based companies, so I think I can tell you this.. that even if you switch as a FE in product based you should have good programming skills and in DSA you should have a grip on array and strings questions atleast.. most of the companies don't even ask tree and graph, these are just for FAANG..
Instead changing the domain try to improve your skills which will take just 2-3 months and then you are good to go

@SAP1 Do you have education criteria for SAP job ? Are they hire 3 year graduate?

Same situation is with me also. Fishes pls suggest us what to do

I am also learning DSA..but except faang most of them ask questions only on arrays strings and objects.So better to learn only these and leave out others for good product based companies

Some frontend companies are not asking DSA. Apply for them

Can you pls name some of them?

Hi all! My team has grown by three people in the last month. For the last 4 years it had solely been my responsibility for all job functions within my team.

HOWEVER - I’ve now come to find out that one has a higher job grade, title, etc from me off the get. I have 9 years in the role, 12+ years in a corporate setting, I am by all accounts a hardworking, efficient, and well regarded…
