What’s up with this trend of hiring managers rejecting developers who don’t have FAANG experience on their resume? People in consulting companies also work for clients who handle high traffic and complex architectures. Also, not everyone wants to work at FAANG companies due to moral issues that these big tech companies ignore and blatantly misuse personal data and privacy.

It’s the same reason why some recruiters look for MBB experience specifically: it means you have a baseline level of competency if you’ve achieved that position (whether or not that’s true is another story). But I have plenty of friends without FAANG experience who are getting calls from recruiters every other day, so I’m not sure how true this statement is

I've never worked at a FAANG company before and I hear from a FAANG recruiter once or twice a month. Definitely not as important as you think

Has a recruiter outright told you this?

Yup. One at Indeed

Don’t think this is trend for levels below senior at least. Just got 2 offers from faang (one of them a max offer) and i’ve only worked at non reputable non tech companies. I have plenty of friends that have passed faang interviews coming from no name places where they’ve worked on minimal scale

Same here. I’m only 4 years out of undergrad and only 2 jobs on my resume. If faang were being as selective as you mention OP, they would never meet their hiring quotas

I've never seen that trend. Did you experience that personally?

Yes but maybe I am drawing a conclusion on a small sample size. This happened when I contacted a recruiter at Indeed Japan. And in another case, the person who referred me was tried to justify “yes he is a really strong developer” after the recruiter saw my resume and told her they only hire “strong candidates”. Maybe I am reading too much into it. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I just completed my 3 month probation period at a national ID firm and I think I hate litigation or at least ID. I also can’t stand the carriers and their billing audits and partners dumping cases on me that were neglected for months then they become ASAP. Is it bad if I start to look for a job at a different type of firm? I thought it would be good to have some lit experience for whatever job I chose to do later on, but I’m not sure I can handle a year of this stress and being exhausted 24/7.

I am an senior associate at a small (8-10 attorneys) immigration firm in NYC. My base is 110k and I get 30% for the cases and clients I bring in. My revenue was 370k last year and I did 250k till April this year. My issue is, I have so much firm's work that I have hard time to work on my cases/clients. It feels like my cases are supposed to be done after hours (like after 6 pm). My work hours are crazy. I feel this is unfair and since my firm's taking 70% of my sales. Should I ask for a raise?

For those who left a promising civilian career to go Active duty for the GI Bill to pay for grad school, was it worth the sacrifice or, knowing what you know now, would you have taken a different path?
