If you’ve taken a “step down” in firm, would love to hear how you negotiated salary, bonus etc and what you were able to get/what to think about.
Is it possible for someone without a degree or tech experience to get a fully remote entry level SDR or BDR role? If so, how? My sister’s boyfriend was fairly successful at a call center a few years ago but has only worked low wage jobs since. Any steady job would be a step up. My current employer wants 2+ YOE in a “professional environment” for the BDR role, which would likely be a barrier even with a referral.

I’m currently actively interviewing. I had a second round with my top company on Monday and it felt good and I haven’t heard back. I emailed the recruiter on Monday and followed up today but haven’t heard back. There’s apparently another round. I’m expecting an offer tomorrow from another company, and gave a final round with another company on Friday. I really want the top company but I’m concerned with the lack of communication. Is there anything else I can do? Should I let this go?

4. Finance Optimization (ERP Implementation)
5. Treasury / Risk Management / Financial instrument (not sure about details tho)

How does Garmin pay for a senior DevOps engineer position? It’s listed in Boulder CO but they don’t show they pay range (even though that is legally required)
I use worked at Crossmedia, they over compensate with perks to hide their lack or organization. Be careful of the people that smile and laugh in your face because they are the ones calling you names behind your back. I had to leave because it was such a bad vibe especially hearing my Director calling people idiots and other distasteful names.
Is the workload and overall stress the same for non-tech roles in FAANG vs Non-FAANG companies? I work for a FAANG company and am stressed out and kind of miss just going to work and clocking out a 5 and not thinking about work. It’s been a while since I worked in non FAANG since my early career years so I’m not sure if things are different nowadays with technology and competition changing over the years.
In theory, Agile is like being in a "union light"?
There's collective bargaining by the engineering team about what tasks they take on (Grooming / Sprint Planning ~ Contracts).
There's regular feedback and round tables to see how to improve things (Retros ~ Union meetings).
Anyone else see this, or am I just being silly?

Why are we still doing coding challenges? We all know nearly every engineer/developer is using stackoverflow (copy/paste code and switch up somethings) or watching that YouTube tutorial. Honestly, there thousands of examples of doing the same thing and we have platforms that check for ‘cheating’. The process needs to change, seriously.
