My new org is in Boston and I’m pleasantly surprised by the level of talent there.
Last org was California and while there’s talent, there is 0 loyalty, 0 camaraderie, and as a result very little in terms of job quality. Silicon Valley can eat a silicon dick.
MedRar dick please, cuz fuck loyalty that only benefits the employer. I'd love to move to a boston suburb but the price of housing is like eastern nj, I'd be an hour out and house poor with no significant increase of pay to make up for the cost incurred of being in the greater boston area.
IDK about you but I work to get paid. If I'm not moving up and there is no benefit aside for cash its time to move on regardless of how well I'm treated. I've been at my current company for 5 years this week, and to keep me in my seat I've been given an "apprenticeship" 2 days a week where I work with RPA devs. Take this opportunity away I'm out, my boss knows that as I've but in my notice twice in the past 18 months and they've answered with money/titles and opportunities. My boss knows I'm staying for the opportunity to become a developer.
Once I'm a dev with a few initiatives under my belt I'll jump ship to cash out and cool it so I can go back and get a relevant degree. Then I can sell my soul to the devil at a company like golden sacs cuz everyone know finance is where dumb money is.
