I think there's a bright future in it for sure. But it all boils down to (or should boil down to) what actually interests you

Is being an analyst something you're interested in?

Biased here, but I think it's pretty good. Pretty much everything is moving to the cloud, so I don't know what else you'd really do at this point?

Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.

What does it mean if a company that you interviewed well for says after you follow up on the next interview level that - the position is kept on hold. Is it a fancy way of saying you are rejected?


This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids

Hello Fishes 🙂 I am planning to switch from my current organization, working as a Mainframe senior engineer having 6+ YOE. I am in a dilemma and would like to know your precious opinions.. 1. Is it good to move from technical to non-tech position considering long term stay in IT sector, WLB, Salary..etc? 2. Since the mainframe is a legacy tech and increment scope is less wrt salaries.. if we want to stay in tech, what will be your tech stack? 3. Any other suggestions for long term in IT?

So, I am a white woman immigrant from Middle Asia (former USSR). I am blond with grey eyes and olive skin… I’ve only been living in the states for 7 years, and I speak with accent. Today my colleague accused me of not being nice enough. I apologized and said that a) As a feminist I don’t find it important to be nice and B) honestly I had no idea how to be nice in the States as I wasn’t a native speaker. She told me I was using my immigrant card as a crutch. I should be offended, right?
