I’m gonna defend OP here for a second. I actually know where you’re coming from. However, this is an incredibly toxic mindset to have and I’m currently in therapy to understand and get rid of it. To those curious, I only think this way because I was bullied and the butt of the jokes when I was growing up, and surpassing my “friends” professionally made me feel better, albeit temporarily, it fades eventually and hence why I’m in therapy to change my mindset and focus on doing the things I love. My guess is OP is in a similar position. Just want to add some perspective

If they’re jealous, they ain’t your friends bud

Hot take: people who work at FAANG and MBB will tell you it’s about comp and interesting work and WLB (for FAANG) but there’s a nonzero factor of prestige that makes people want to work there (AKA making your friends jealous).

A big portion those who say otherwise are just trying to be holier than thou.

Speaking from personal experience and being 100% honest with myself in what I looked for when exiting MBB.

Make your friends jealous by going on unemployment and getting free money from a pool of money they paid into

likefunnysmart

You’re also paying into that system right now, along with the people who were employed who now need UI

There is zero chance a person posting this has any friends to make jealous

I used to think like this. Now I get jealous at dentists that make 150k a year and work 9-5.

likefunny

What??!! Is that all dentists earn? I kept thinking they earn more than big tech employees. Look at what they charge

I hope this post was just a joke that missed - it's in pretty poor taste.

Not sure what kind of person is motivated by trying to make their friends jealous.
