Hey I'm really thinking about getting locs. It's just seems like a more manageable day to day style for me. I'm worried about how I'll be judged though at work. I know I shouldn't be but it's a reality. What do you think? Something like this as the end goal. I'm early into my career (less than 5 years).
Looking to pivot from Meta asap. Between the culture and the industry, I’m nervous about the state of the company. I literally had a client randomly text me, “hey, what’s the future of Instagram?” In plus Meta is on a mission to push people out by increasing performance goals in order to weed out employees. Anyone feeling just as nervous about tech as me? What are you all thinking as a next move? I’m new to tech and don’t have much intel on companies with the best culture & comp. Please help

Agile project delivery - Fact or Fiction?
The places I’ve worked at, as much as they say they delivery projects via agile, rarely achieve this (mostly waterfall with a small sprinkling of agile words thrown in for good measure).
Google / Facebook (Meta) / Amazon / Tesla / Apple / anyone else - please tell me that agile project delivery exists (and how have you made this possible in your company?)
Facebook wants me to interview for a much lower title than what I currently have at Google. "Without 5 years of experience, your chances are slim for this position" is what they said when I applied. Do they really think that is supposed to entice anyone?

Somewhat indirectly, but in about a year I’m seriously considering it. For now, I’m looking to start investing through helping real estate agents, contractors and architects get noticed through SEO connections in web design & development at DesignArt.io
I used to (had four single family homes before I quit) but after realizing that the vast majority of people scrambling to get into real estate barely beat / make even less than a standard return on a REIT ETF or simply lose a lot of money, I mostly got out of real estate and just started amassing typical index funds (including REIT’s) instead.
Happily watching the dumpster fire and stress people have from afar with a few taps on my phone. Some of course make an absolute killing in real estate and that’s great for them, but don’t be fooled. I buy cheap land here and there when my investment portfolio swells enough. Plots in areas like Huntsville, AL and Clarksville, TN have skyrocketed my portfolio over the years unlike traditional real estate.
I think, more than anything else, your post highlights the importance of luck in the real estate market. Places like Huntsville (great city btw), are booming thanks to defense spending, and the LCOL has attracted many people to such places during the Covid relo-boom.
To your point, there are far more stories of people losing or barely breaking even. As in all things, no one hears or cares about them, they only care about that 10x properly flip (that was purely due to luck and timing, as opposed to knowing something that others don’t).
