Even if it does IPO in a year, you can still make a decent multiple on the equity. And if it’s a promising company with headroom to grow, no reason you don’t see high returns over the next few years. Which company is this, stripe?

Hi folks,

I had joined my new company as an Application Developer. During my both job and client interviews they asked me core Java questions and I believed my project would be involving a high level of development. However I am just performing analysis on code for migration and the manager is saying that if we do our work right we will get development project to do. What is to be done? I have 3 YoE.

Why is it recommended you give a company 2 weeks notice when you are leaving but at the same time, when they are laying you off/firing you, they typically do it on the spot. I have known countless people layed off/fired on the spot over the years (especially after busy season) and everyone else when they leave give 2 week notice. Why should we relinquish power to corporations? Corporations really don't care about us. They pretend they do.
