Hey fishes, hope you are doing great. I'm a DevOps/sre Engineer, with 12 YOE in the UK. I'm currently working in a Reputed tech company. Not FAANG. I would like to pursue my career in these above similar top tech companies. Would like to know your opinions on preparation and what kind of salaries can be expected and is there any WLB.
preparation: I'm sure that I'm bad at datastructures and algos.
Sys Design:ok
But my role has nothing to do with too much SD
Appreciate your suggestions

Trying to do a little market research. I’m a partner at a corporate boutique focused on tech startups, and we’re recruiting BigLaw refugees. Would the following offer be appealing to you?:
-Fixed salary 60% of Cravath scale
-No hours requirement. We expect you to work hard 40-45 hours/week, but we’ll respect your nights and weekends (with rare exceptions), and let you take holidays and planned vacations
-Work from anywhere

If it’s a marginal “no” for you, what would push you over the edge?
