If you had the opportunity to leave consulting and work in industry doing the same work (which you like!) minus the billable hours, sales goals, and terrible wlb but you would be in a location that is less than desirable to you, would you take the job? Assuming you are satisfied with the pay.

Depends if I had the same ability to influence and drive change that I do as a consultant. Typically you have about 25%-50% as loud a voice in industry. If that’s something you’re ok with then go for it. I can’t stand feeling marginalized considering all the hours I put into my job.

I spent 12 years in industry and 8 in consulting. The difference in perceived worth is staggering.

Hey,

I (6.5 years of experience) got fair offer of 20lpa as SD3 in
Comcast.
Now Tata Consultancy offers around 19lpa (majority will be allowance) and additionally they are offering Europe on-site (confirmed) atleast 2 years.

My expectation is good tech-stack and reasonable take home salary.

How about Comcast in terms of learning ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all! What are the differences between senior/staff SWE and software architects? Are architects still a thing? I'm causally searching for a new position (my job had a 50% layoff last month and the survivability of the company is sketchy) and I've noticed senior and staff SWE roles sound like they have a lot of architectural designing and leadership responsibilities while not focusing on coding as much. Is this normal? I love mentoring, but I also don't wanna be in meetings all day. 😕

She said there’s no such thing as just being a “copywriter” any more. This sounds nuts to me. Is this an interactive thing? Have I been in this biz too long?
