Better pay and better work life balance at the same time

Thank you!!!!

Better pay with longer hours. Save that pay and you’ll eventually have enough money to invest in assets producing passive income

Depends on how low the salary is. I moved to industry working 30-40 hours per week making $180k plus bonus in MCOL. I could definitely make more in PA but would work double the hours. I’m extremely happy with my current salary and WLB and like my team.

Dmed you need advice

I f*cking love this thread so many more people are now more about WLB AND salary than anything. We can get both. We can’t keep taking this BS. Stay strong I’m fighting my ass off for my staff etc

Better pay but longer hours isn't actually better pay at all most of the time.

Having said that, take the pay when young and seek the wlb above everything else when you have little kids.

I agree with you. For this reason I put my notice yesterday. WLB is very important when you have family

Best WLB to pursue other hobbies, endeavors, spend time with family. Time is finite and I used to work crazy hours but now I am on my thirties and time with family and personal projects are more relevant/important right now.

Decent pay with wlb. There’s so much more in life than just work.

Better wlb. No sense in saving for some future time that might not come

My current job has a solid progression to make more money, but it takes years to get there. I make about $70k right now. As a data engineer/analyst.

I have an upcoming interview with Grammarly and looked at every single interview review they had on Glassdoor. There were only several positive experiences compared to a large amount of negative interview experiences. What’s your experience like and do you recommend working here? What’s the WLB there? I love and enjoy using Grammarly as a product but felt a little discouraged after reading the reviews on Glassdoor.

Reviews were mainly centered on no feedback/response after hw assignments, many
