Robinhood probably


RHvWSB was "lock your social media down so the crazies can't find you" levels of bad. I'm glad it resolved quickly, but I don't envy their people during that incident.

Been pretty tame except for RH. Worst we had was a German fintech evaporating some $2B (Wirecard) and Nikola being uncovered making stuff up. Nothing at Cambridge Analytica scale, and I guess that's a good thing.

Hi all,

I graduated with a low gpa from undergrad (sub 2.5) :/ two years ago. I have a degree in math and CS and was wondering how I could recover from this to apply for graduate school?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Like most tech companies, about a year ago my company started hiring remote employees. we all worked remotely for 24 months.

Now that we are reopening our offices, no one seems to be coming into the office yet. I really do not want to work remotely anymore, and I’m seriously considering changing jobs just to go back to a workplace where people are in person.

Is anybody else in this position? I feel like I am losing my mind working from home for two years with no end in sight.

My WLB is good, work is pretty interesting.

What can I do?

It feels like I am just waiting to gain enough years of experience to be better suited for lead and management positions.
