Hey Friends, need help!! I am a developer with 1.6 YoE, got placed on-campus (NIT), can code well in Java and Python, but want to move into an analyst type role as I am not sure if I can be a good 'developer'.
Is it an ideal move for a long career, or if I want to do an MBA in future?
If so, could you please suggest how to prepare for such roles in good companies?
I feel a little lost with a lot of self doubt, and possibly need some counselling on this too. Suggestions are welcome.

Been looking to leave current over 10 years at company for less toxic corp and fully remote.
Got offer last week,negotiated base salary already,they came up around 4.3% (=current salary)
They offer 15 PTO, I have 20 (plus some optional days), trying to figure wording to now negotiate PTO, or is it too late and looks bad?

I was asking to confirm role grade or level, clarification on monetary bonuses and then about PTO

I’m usually super agreeable and vague so not sure how to balance wording

How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving. I find the code base to be very legacy and I mostly work on obscure bugs that I spend so much time on, mostly due to navigating this large code base and not having much docs to refer to. Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.
