Why do we have titles like senior, staff, principal engineer? Couldn't everyone just be called software engineer and be done with it? Regardless of how much you earn. It seems like it only adds unnecessary tension to have these distinctions

I think it is necessary to show seniority in some cases and have distinction between the levels at which people are at in the company. People need to have some sort of promotion to be working towards which is what the titles are. They help to show experience levels and make it easier to know who to go to for different issues and questions.

That kind of makes sense, but I don't think I ever sought someone else's advice based on their seniority, only if I knew they were an expert in a certain area. No matter how many years they have been working.
From my own experience I did once leave a job when I didn't get promoted but a colleague with the same amount of experience did. I found it kind of embarrassing to be non senior at that point. If there had been no title change but just change in salary I wouldn't have minded so much. (Not saying this was the only reason I left, but it did contribute to the decision)

Responsibilities (and salary and comp package) are or should be different based on your title.

You can still pay people according to their level of experience and how much responsibility they have

Titles are usually associated with pay bands. Even if it’s just Developer I, II, III, etc. (which many companies still use as official position titles). I’m a Lead DE, but my official position in the company is simply database engineer. My company use a position level code to designate level (and associated pay band), that is used across all positions, tech or not.

I am all for constructive feedback and criticism — I know what the legal profession expects — but my job makes me feel so stupid.

They answered no, they have been here for months, and it’s not like this wasn’t in the job description. Am I missing something here? Trying to be helpful but stuff like this is frustrating.

Remote vs in person for software developers in their early career. I started my career in 2021 fully remote. After the office opened again in 2022, I was able to learn a lot about the system from other people in the office and solve bugs faster. Without a doubt made my job easier. Lots of my colleagues still work from home in 2022. I can’t see why they are making it harder for themselves on purpose. I’m fairly confident they can afford to get to the office because they have teslas and shit.
