Does anyone have recommendations on books or courses that do a really good job explaining step-by-step on how to start and run a mid-size business (local marketing agency, self storage real estate business, call center for third parties, etc.)

Hi Everyone

Can someone please tell me about AI/ML Team at Comcast India? How are the work-life balance, culture, and entry-level pay?

Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.

CS and SWE is great in that it can be applicable to a great range of fields, to create immensely helpful tools for other things.

What are some areas where SWE intersects with things that help people, country, and the world? Now also add in making a decent living and generally competitive with other SWE “industry”.

Things that come to my mind are government-related, military, some fintech. Sciences have great need of computing, and can have big impact, but income is less clear.
