I am currently working full-time and started classes for a MCS degree from UIUC online. I’m severely underpaid and can’t afford both school and work. Originally was going to quit and focus on school full time but I’m having reservations about the degree program. Can anyone give any insight into how an MCS looks as opposed to a M.S. in CS as well as UIUC’s reputation on paper? I’m thinking of finding another program, but that takes time and I won’t last at this job for much longer.

We are a firm of 5 transactional attorneys and the bonus structure is very unclear. The usual “based on personal performance and firm profitability” language. I wonder how this is calculated in general. What is the percentage bracket of the bonus? Assume it is a high performance 9+ year attorney and the firm is profitable (even with COVID). The based salary is low $120k. Firm is in Tx. I’d love to hear your comments.

I have an interview for Functional testing in EPAM anywhere on Monday(28th mar). And I applied through one of my cousins referral.
When I applied, the JD was different in LinkedIn and recently the JD for functional testing is different.
Currently linkedin shows EPAM hires for Finctional Api testing in which I have a knowledge but not experience. Will EPAM consider me or will they require API experience mandatory?or will they hire&deploy me to a project according to my skill set?
