Job hopping within a year of joining. While you can make great money in tech, many cultures within companies you step foot into are toxic and lead to burnout. The company I’m in right now seems to be different. Hoping I can plant my roots here and stay put!

Second this! Each time there is hope though!

I've never seen a job where you "only" worry about physical exhaustion. Being lower middle class isn't like going to the gym.

We don’t like to call it “beer on tap”. Corporate finance prefers if we expense it as “office donuts”. I guess that’s the difference between a startup and a corporation with a BU that has a startup mentality 🧐

Wearing a t-shirt spotting tech slogans and company logos in the front or back like a company billboard.

I was unknowingly wearing a Google t-shirt on the first day on a cruise ship, and some ladies in the elevator saying to each other "he works for Google", and my wife heard it, and after we were back to our cebine she said "you better take that off or else people think you are showing off", and I was like "I didn't do that on purpose", and I stopped wearing that afterwards, and I thought no one else on the ship would know, until one day after several days on the sea another lady in the dinning room said to me out of blue: "can I ask you something about how to use computer..."
