Programming seems so technical and coding seems ehh.


FOMO of being at FAANG really hits hard on those 4am nights.

I think I would literally forgo my bonus to get destaffed from this lol


I keep thinking this too LOL

For such a non technical field and one that tbh doesn’t require the most critical thinking, people in IB and financial services in general are paid more than enough. The compensation for CS make sense for all the technical expertise required, which not many have the patience to do. Still wouldn’t do CS. My 2c

Analyst 2 I never claimed accounting required more critical thinking or technical expertise than adjusting logos, in fact if you read my comment I called out all financial services for being less technical compared to CS. You put the claim out there without prompt so obviously my comment snagged some insecurity within you. Also CPA is not some exam you just sit for, and I wish the pass rate is that high. plz fix thx.
