Yes. He came to a site I was leading a launch in.

I had answered a set of question mark emails that he recalled. But he said hello and continued on about his visit.

I’ve also worked with the new #2, he is much more direct and involved.


ALMOST did. He was supposed to come to my site, we spent all night cleaning, he went to site down the street instead.

I am working as a Splunk Consultant for a partner company and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to work for Splunk directly.

How much does Microsoft pay their entry level designers? The pay must be worth it right since designers go there to die. The bar to entry seems to be extremely low as Microsoft hasn’t produced anything remotely attractive visual / experience wise in the last decades. A company with over 100,000 designers but nobody has any eye for visual design or what LOOKS good… there’s a reason they’re not respected in tech and nobody’s first choice.


Hi community, I finally came here for some words of wisdom from y'all.

Offer: 160TC, SDE, 200 Engineers
Current: 120TC, SDE, 4K Engineers
Benefits are about the same.

I have switched jobs 2 times in the past two years. This switch will mark it 3. I like the current work I do and my manager. By taking the offer, I sense there will be a tilt in my WLB as it’s a smaller company. They also use Elixr instead of Python which I’m familiar with.

What are your thoughts? Is the 33% salary worth it??


Can any UX Designers (or similar) give a realistic rundown of what they do every day and the general vibe of the position?

Hi Everyone,

Currently an associate web developer approaching my 2.5 year mark. Making ~85k in the Southern California (Orange County) area. My yearly evaluation is coming up and I want to ask for a pay raise and title promotion. How much should I ask for a non-associate role.


I recently got a verbal offer from Salesforce for a senior architect role (level 8) in Toronto location. Base 200 CAD + 15% bonus + 94K RSU. Any suggestion if this is a good offer?
