Hot take. Is FAANG even a thing? Or was Cramer just worried about the acronym if he took out Netflix?

1) Streaming in HD to millions of users is a very difficult tech problem. Netflix solved this. Others are just following them. Netflix built large scale tech for one of the most difficult tech problems. They have also been pioneers in AI based recommendations before anyone bothered doing so 2) Netflix is the highest paying company in the valley. It’s expected for 25-27 year old SWE/PM/DS to make 500-600K there. Even recruiters make 250k. It should be on the elite list just for its comp alone 3) In 2012, FANG was an investing strategy before it was a Tech tier ranking. Netflix was one of the highest performing stocks of the last decade. To not include it would just be questionable. As an investing strategy it was spot on. The tech eliteness came a few years later

Yes. Definitely at 27 if not a bit earlier

Also not as catchy if you rearrange it (w/o N). AGAF GAAF GAFA

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
