What part of cyber? We are pretty broad. Soc analyst? Pen tester? Application security?


Thank you i will look into SC-200

Does your company have cybersecurity team? Have you taken any online courses? If so talk to your security team leaders about transferring.

I would start applying and doing security related things in your day job you can reference and talk about in interviews. Security profession needs more people and finding a company who is willing to grow you into the role is what you need to find.


There are several certifications you need to look into acquiring dependent on what aspect of cybersecurity you are interested in and they are difficult and can be costly.

Like soc analyst

Has your firm gone woke? My leadership is consumed by virtue signaling and social justice to the point where nothing else (even our business) seems to matter. More importantly, they seem oblivious to the fact that not everyone shares their woke sensibilities and they’ve said some highly divisive and offensive things. There is no vehicle for dissent. Thinking of leaving a firm I’ve dedicated my life to as a result. It’s a sad realization.

Anyone in Brooklyn NY looking for a nanny?
We are devastated to let our nanny of 3+yrs go. She’s wonderful & has been nothing short of a member of our family since since my son was 4mths old. She’s been doing this for 20 years and still communicates with babies she cared for who are now in college. Despite knowing more than us, she was always respectful of our wants, wishes, and parenting style. I’d love to help her find a fam that could benefit from her guidance & support as much as we have.

If there is a case that we have to quarantine again. Do you all think it is possible for store associates to work remotely? If so, what are some ways this could work? I fear another pandemic or outbreak and so many people being out of work again. I can't even fathom those that had jobs in retail that had little to no choice to not be remote.

Hi everyone, I need help evaluate an offer for senior data scientist at a mid size corporate in SF (mainly focus on statistical modeling and data analysis, no MLE related tasks):
$175K base + 300K RSU, no bonus, fully remote. I’m currently working at a unicorn with $115K base + stock options (best case scenario if stock price increase 11x I’d get around $300K out of it before tax) + 15% annual bonus, in office 2-3 times a week.


Received an offer from a top FAANG for a 250% increase in TC. However, I was initially interviewing for a position that was remote and yet the final offer does not provide that option, non-negotiable. I have a wife and 2-year-old child and another one due in 7 months, and currently live near both sets of grandparents.

Is working at a top FAANG really worth that kind of cost? I'm leaning heavily 'no' but it's not making it easy to sleep at night knowing I'm sitting on this kind of offer!


Are other city’s getting a new “coding bootcamp” or fortune 500 company partnering with existing local boot camp like once a week?

In the last 8 months Detroit has had:
* Apple open up a developer academy
* Ford + Google partner up to make a coding bootcamp for high schoolers
* Accenture opening up coding classes for high schoolers
* Amazon partnering with an existing bootcamp — grand circus— and fully funding it for qualified individuals

Wtf? Detroit usually is the city company’s avoid?

Got an offer from a growing tech start up, base salary got reduced but bonus and stock options (300 units over 4 years) are amazing. The company is aiming for IPO next year. What're your thoughts on reduced base?


Hi everyone !

I currently work in SaaS, and I recently got proposed a Customer Success Manager position there. I was initially looking for an Account Executive position, but I was afraid to be a bit bored, and not to be able to express my creativity enough in this position. From what I was explained, CSM would allow me to work in between several departments and to be very free.
In your opinion, should I wait for an AE role or are learning and growth opportunities bigger as a CSM ?

What’s with technical interviews, even when everything was fine and answering every question, still rejecting candidate. Is this becoming industry wide phenomenon?


Hey to all of my overworked designers out there If you're looking to offload some work for your agency, in-house team, etc I'm down to help out.

Just heard this on a podcast and it's so true "The most damaging employees are not the ones that quit and leave, it's the ones that quit and stay."


Just came across this article about how Apple is paying up to $180K in out-of-cycle bonuses to retain their top talent instead of jumping ship to @Facebook (Meta). What are your guys' thoughts/insight/opinion about this?
