This is the successor of /jrg/.
NEETs kept crying that it has nothing to do with technology and tried to shut us down.

Now we are back, better and stronger than ever before!

Dude, the worst that will happen is that your BOSS will be fucked as a result.

Put it in writing aka an email to remind him about that form itself. If the boss neglects it, and things escalate, then point to higher management to call that shit out.

They will probably then fire the boss, and maybe higher you instead, or work to get it done.

Since this is your first job, this is called 'Managing Up'. I have had to do this before for weird shit in the past. Its awkward, but try putting it in writing, and if you don't hear back within 1 to 3 business days, I would then escalate it up to higher management.

probably the wrong place to ask but - to my /g/uys out there that've worked in FAANG, how was your experience?

How did you last that long?
>>
>>86910282
At first, I did some data engineering work but then I switched to full functional programming, so I didn't really had time to get bored.
From what I'm seeing, Scala 3 has a really slow adoption which may eventually kill the language, that's why I'm switching.
I really hope that I'm wrong and Scala prevails because I love it but it's just not looking good.
>>
>>86910150
how can a startup be insulated from a recession? did they solve fusion reactors or something?
i've never been with FAANG (but similar), I'd wager atleast two of those letters will drop in the next 2-4 years. at this point I'd really only consider amazon, apple and microsoft.
but really if that startup has struck gold, you should go there. working culture will probably be 10 times better (and you'll get to influence that)
>>
>>86910305
I remember long time ago reading about how scala's compiler was really slow. There were some issues with the language, maybe related to java compatibility. I remember using scala many many years ago, maybe around 2014. Now with Kotlin not sure if scala is worth it.

>I have a strong L5 offer from google

>but am leaning toward a startup right now that is well insulated from the impending recession
i don't consider any startups well insulated

>please tell me i am doing the right thing leaving a bunch of guaranteed big corp money on the table to take a homerun swing
what is the startup offer and how much better is it than the google offer?

we can't really tell you how much risk to take. if you're relatively young and don't have many commitments then it's easier to justify taking a risk with the startup
like idk what your startup offer is but if your base salary is good enough just think of the equity as your chance to become a multimillionaire within the next few years

>>86910331
>I'd really only consider amazon, apple and microsoft.

>I remember long time ago reading about how scala's compiler was really slow.
It kinda is, but I guess I got used to it. And on quick rebuilds it works fast. I don't mind it at all.
Java interoperability however is pretty garbage since you have to use all the Java types or convert them to Scala which makes the code really messy. Or you can just write wrappers around it but this requires maintenance.
Kotlin is probably much better for interoperability with Java. If I had to say, I'd go for Kotlin today.

i dont like or own any apple products, but as a company I think they will be profitable for a long time. and working on the silicon or firmware/kernel are interesting jobs. and the same goes also for amazon, and also for microsoft (minus the silicon).

maybe, but if you're coming from FAANG you'll get to influence that. whereas in big corpo, you get the environment that exists, and it's 99% the same across the whole corpo.

Google isn't going anywhere anytime soon. They had a bad reputation for over 15 years, still kept growing.

I think Facebook is also too influential to fail in the next at least 10 years.
Don't know about Netflix, maybe they have a trick up their sleeves.

That's bullshit. You can't afford shit in goymany with a 5 figure salary.

50k before taxes is like 30k after, it's insane.
New car? That'll be 30k plus taxes for your average shitbox.
Rent? 1k a month for a decent place
House? That'll be 800k minimum if you don't feel like renovating the entire thing.

The only based thing about this shit ass country is having zero taxes on crypto gains if you held for a year.

>you get the environment that exists, and it's 99% the same across the whole corpo.
ehhh. yeah there are overarching company themes but not all teams are exactly alike. microsoft apparently there's no standardization since all the teams are siloed to the point where you have to re-interview if you want to transfer out of your department

Currently working in Canada, wanted to apply for jobs in the states.
Have a B. Computer Science w/ Honors but I'm not sure what the U.S. equivalent is for my updated resume.

it's the best public-company offer I've received this cycle (all others were for similarly leveled roles). hard to compare directly to startups, as ultimately everything comes down to company success + value of equity. this offer is a much stronger guaranteed floor value, but the startup only has to do moderately well to eclipse those total comp numbers.

fuck you make $135k a year as a tech writer? I've always thought about making the move to one because I unironically like to write.. I write a lot of documentation now as an electrical engineer, and studied EE and philosophy in school. What sort of company do you work for, what sort of documentation are you writing/editing/maintaining?

I've worked as an electrical engineer in manufacturing for the past 8 years. early years involved long hours and commissioning, now I do more design and it's definitely more comfy but a bit more boring.

A BS and 2 year cybsec would probably land you something like an infosec analyst or infosecurity specialist, basically you would be "researching" and making sure apps in your space comply with security standards. You aren't gonna be doing like reverse malware or Red team hacking and such, for that you will need a CSP cert or Pentest+ and more experience or CS. But cybsec pays well anyway so just depends on what you wanna do, you arent gonna be starving.

I am starting to wish that I had not gotten into the tech business. I just wanted enough money for a farm.

bruh just ditch the tech shit and use your skills to handle farm equipment

potentially a screening interview (with recruiter and/or HR)
coding test (if programming)
at least one, if not more, technical interviews. usually if it's across multiple interviews it means interviews with peers and team leads first, followed by interviews with the management who can actually hire.
try interviewing from nz now. you might find something remote and not have to move.

I have this fantasy too bro, but I think having a farm is a job itself. Not saying it's impossible
It's chill, but it's also hard work
A 9-5 job + maintaining a decently sized farm alone is probably not too viable unless the farm is the only hobby you have
If I had to choose between the job and the farm, I'd choose the farm, but I need money first.

I can't believe I was laid off. Germany is such a shit mediocre country. I'm 34 and so fucking fed up with software engineering. I hate the routine, I hate the office politics, I hate the power plays, I hate the daily standups. Every team I worked in over the years was fucking mediocre. A hell hole filled with normie Germans, talking about 'Simpsons' and 'Game of Thrones' shit during lunch. Just zip it could you please you neck bearded low-life.

Guys I'm thinking about going on welfare and being a neet again. Thoughts?

testing stuff: web/desktop/mobile applications, servers, internal/external wired/wireless networks, APIs, ... I've done a bit of everything. right now I'm doing almost nothing, so I'm getting really bored... but otoh, it's almost free money and I have a LOT of time.

My guy, I doubt you're gonna take this well, but there was one constant throughout your entire career - if it wasn't obvious enough. The final nail in the coffin is that you got laid off in what is supposedly a team made up of mediocre people.
>wah I got laid off because I don't talk about Game of Thrones at lunch.
Nah.

I'm so fucking sick of my job. When I signed up, it was to do front end dev stuff. For the past two months I've been doing IT work including setting up servers, and I've literally had to google how to do every single thing cause I have no training with it. I wasn't onboarded at all, and have to work with a team that is made up of 50% who don't speak English. For the past week I've stopped responding to our messages on the Slack-like app (it isn't even Slack lol), and thinking of just stopping doing shit at all until I get fired.

I have a cs degree (from a state school, horrible GPA desu), 1 internship, a personal website, side projects and im 700+ application deep from applying on and off since i graduated in 2020. i can't take it anymore, im so close to giving up and just getting a wagie job. this is so stressful. i want to work in web development and do comfy front end stuff but ill take anything at this point. pls hire me i need to move out of my moms house im 27 it's pathetic.

It's significantly easier to pretend like you're getting work done at an office. With WFH they're a lot stricter about your time-tracking and proving that you're actually hitting your deadlines. At the office you can look busy just by walking around and talking to people and pretending all your time spent in "meetings" is actually productive.

Anon you're a fool if you think you can't do that in an office setting. I've spent entire weeks at the office looking busy and doing absolutely nothing productive. It may be easier at home since you don't have to pretend as hard, but like I said, at least at my company, they look at your actual PRs and deadlines a lot more closely when you're WFH. It's like if you actually show up, people assume you're getting work done, because at least you showed up to the office.

Powerful men got used to having air-headed women in the office, and when secretaries started becoming obsolete thanks to software (don't need a person to remind you about a meeting when Outlook does it for free) they invented new bullshit roles to keep air-headed women around. The work environment for executives has barely changed over the years while they keep making everybody below them work more and more like cattle to boost shareholder profits.

Started out doing config management at DirecTV right around the time AT&T took over. Did a bit of backend Python work. Really basic stuff. Learned more about JIRA than I ever cared to learn.

Ended up doing application support. Boss was an asshole and the product, while having some cool features, had its fair share of warts. It was dependent on software that was being deprecated. A lot of things didn't work but customers liked my service. Did a lot with SQL. Got pretty good at it.

Ditched that shit for an Android programmer position. Learned about threads. They always seemed like something mystifying. Nope. Just more instructions. Wrote code and tested. Entire shop was disorganized but I made the best of it. Ended up having to quit around COVID. Could not take the wear and tear on my vehicle (1.5h commute each way, brakes gave out one morning) and the loss of sleep was killing me.

Ended up working from home as a Data Engineer. First time ever hearing of Spark. First time ever using Azure. Quickly became team's Azure Monitor SME. Convinced the team to switch from Python to Scala cause muh types. The software architect bitched but we all agreed to make the change.

(Present) That contract ended. Got placed on a new project. Its support...again. Such is the life of a consultant. Relegated to writing UNIX scripts that do small tasks (move files here, clean up permissions there) along with other random tasks. Mainly write in Python and Bash. Good mix of Windows and UNIX. Learning new automation systems.

Life is good. Currently working on certs and on expanding my knowledge and skillset as a software developer. Often get calls from recruiters and I always listen to what they're offering if its 100% remote. If the pay is significantly better, I move.

Thank you for reading my blog post, xirs **takes a bow**

Working as a consultant, this past month has been crazy. So many people have quit both my consulting company, and the client I'm working at. I'm talking people that have been at both companies for 10, 15, 20 years, all jumping ship at the same time. I have no idea wtf is happening but I'm genuinely worried. I don't want to jump off the bridge just because everybody else is, but I also don't want to be the last person aboard a sinking ship. Hard to tell which is which.

Completely separate Anon, but at my job (2 jobs ago), people kept droning on and on about Game of Thrones to the point where I found out spoilers on leaked posts and started pretending like I watched.

It's the same Mongoloid, do you think I had to appear busy all day long today? I haven't even had a meeting today and don't think I will.

I believe your pretension that appearing busy in the office is easier is shit in my experience. It's always been more stressful for me in the office but it's always situational, your company maybe is just shittier stress-wise.

Anyways, no bad feelings you cum guzzler. I hope you have a great day sir.

I'm not even fucking a good web dev. Only took the job for the money and because it was remote. I miss my old job so much, why did I leave.

To other anons out there, if you are chilling in your job currently think twice before moving for more money. It might not be the best idea.
