Hello fellow 🐠🐠🐠, I attended an interview with MSFT for CSA role. Recruiter just called me to inform that I got positive feedback from the interviewers and will be moving forward in the process. He mentioned that there will be a meeting with Business to present the results and align a specific role. I am little confused because I thought the interview was for a specific role. He was not able to tell me the level I might be mapped to as well. Any idea what this really means?

Like anywhere you need to set boundaries or you could work like a dog. Some areas better than others.

Basically many Microsoft divisions now have a similar hiring process like Google - you pass the interview and then get matched to a team

Pls share your thoughts: currently mid 20s and working in a slow paced company w AMAZING WLB and low pay compared to tech companies but average pay in my current industry. Do you think it's worth moving to a tech company and get paid a lot more but not having as great of a WLB? I'm interviewing for diff companies (a few out of state) and would have to relocate if I receive the offer but some are fully remote positions. Is pay a good trade-off for WLB since I'm still early in my career?

In theory, Agile is like being in a "union light"?

Anyone else see this, or am I just being silly?
