How Is the future of C++ language . I have been working on c++ for almost 1.5 years in a health care industry to maintain legacy code base.
But my current pay is only 10 lpa. While my friends in full stack developer role is earning twice my package .

So I am confused , will the package get better if I switch companies ???? Or is it better to switch the tech stack itself ????

I like c++ coding much more than any language .but package is also my concern.

Thanks in advance

Any high volume corporate recruiters out there? I need advice, I have about 130-150 reqs, but about 300 open positions. I’m managing ok, but I’ll be passing off some of my sow soon because its not sustainable long term. One of my decks has about 100 reqs, and +\- 130 positions, the other 30-50 reqs holds almost 200 positions. So lower req load but more positions, or higher req load, less positions. It’s up to me to decide and I can’t choose :( plus I love all my hiring managers so it’s personal.

I want to interact with my coworkers more and pitch my ideas, does anyone have any advice on how I can overcome this?
