I’m jealous of my husband’s work situation. He is in a non tech role at FAANG and makes the same as me ~$200k but works about 20-40 hours a week and then spends the rest of the time napping, & watching tv. He gets his work done quickly, attends meetings and has really great relationships to where people think he’s a superstar. To be fair, when things hit crunch time, he’s working hard and late hours, but it’s definitely a more balanced life. Are all faang companies work/life balance like this?

I've heard you shouldn't quit because of another employee. Two times in my career managers have tried to get me fired to cover up their own incompetence or mistakes. I played it well and they ended up being fired. They were very abusive to staff.

Now I'm dealing with a frankly insane coworker and I really don't feel like waiting it out or playing some game. It's exhausting.
