Depends on the company and role.

Depends on the company and it’s market positioning / outlook from here on out. The VMWare / IBM / HPs of the world, it feels like they are playing “not to lose” rather than playing to win, and thus are dying a slow death. I don’t know that I would want to be there today much less 10 years from now. The ones that have proven they can reinvent themselves to stay relevant and lead from the front, i.e. Microsoft, absolutely.

What is old guard big tech?

They do very different work vs. FAANG. Depends what you’re interested in. Also depends on the packages, perks, and stability of the company/industry honestly.

I recently started (5/mo ago) at a new agency and everything is a 180 from my last role and I’m honestly getting discouraged.

How can I turn this experience around?
