From a product perspective what makes fishbowl so good?

Anonymity and focus on work life/issues.

It’s also a surprisingly supportive place with a lot less trolling than most of the internet. I would have thought being anonymous would make people less supportive, but the opposite has been true in my experience.


Definitely the ability to speak openly and be honest, thanks to the anonymity. I also appreciate that the mods seem to have a good handle on things to prevent too many toxic interactions.



I love that people can share about their work experiences freely


it's anonymous yet I learn soooo much! people seem to be really nice and not toxic here, and I can't say the same for other similar apps

new interactions occur with different views and ideas thanks to the fishbowl

Not a confession but does anyone have recs on where to learn about topics you're interested in for free? IE i want to learn more about things i wish i took in college instead of the practical/pay my bills degree like art history or diff sociology topics that i can listen to lectures while working (vs auditing a class irl or doing HW) but more researched and vetted than just podcasts. Is Coursera good for this?

Every conversation is strained and they judge and critique every aspect of my life, even though I’m finally feeling happy and settled in my career. How did you handle a new chapter of your relationship with them?

So I have been offered a job at multinational company as a Data Engg. It was a part of the hiring event, and literally got selected with a VERY VERY SIMPLE technical assessment, and a 45 minute interview.

The pay should within my expectations, but I am unsure about the company and the team.

Just that the process was way too easy so quick. I do not even know the hiring manager.

Has someone been a part of this before? Any suggestions if I should go for it? What should I ask?

Fish Fam, I would like your opinion for a question that has been bugging me for a while. Would you rather take good pay and stability, but ultimately lower career satisfaction at a larger company, or a more exciting role for lower pay (but with the very uncertain prospect of a payout) at a Startup?

In theory, Agile is like being in a "union light"?

There's collective bargaining by the engineering team about what tasks they take on (Grooming / Sprint Planning ~ Contracts).
There's regular feedback and round tables to see how to improve things (Retros ~ Union meetings).

Anyone else see this, or am I just being silly?
