Yes. It gets (way) more intense. Demands on you, for both pure output and problem solving are way higher here (I used to work at B4).

This is my fear and generally what stops me from trying to move up. How have you dealt with it...I assume there's a new level of feeling inadequate that comes along with something like that? Did you feel wildly unprepared to take on the increased pressure?

Waze needs to implement statuses within the app. You earn points currently for reporting road situations (construction, weather, cops, hazards, etc). They should have level thresholds you unlock by earning X points from reporting conditions. The higher the status, 1) the greater the priority you get for faster routes and 2) the larger the impact of your condition reports / condition confirmations or rejections on other users’ reports. People would be greater incentivized to report conditions
