Quarter of a million? What’s a lengthy way to type $250k… 💪🏼


That’s some SDE right there


Are you hiring?

Let me know if you need an assistant to do half your work for half the salary so you can play more video games lol


I think for most white collar jobs (with some exceptions) the pandemic has shown that most roles don’t actually require 40+ hours a week.


Shutup about it if you want it to stay that way.


PM1 I’m more so referring to the push to end WFH by the companies. They’ll likely cite things like this to justify their silly position that we should return to pre-COVID norms.

You hiring? Hmu

What firm and/or position is that buddy? Show us your 🐠friends the way hun. Sharing is caring 😂. You can also dm me if you are too shy to say it here

Hire me - can work & also play video game as well


If you pass all work to the analyst you do lol

Wouldn't you rather read some books, watch documentaries, pick up some new skills, etc.? You never know when your gravy train will end and you'll wish you had accomplished more.

1. Ok dad 2. Reread OP then look at the first thing you suggested he do

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?
