Hi everyone, are there any tech companies in our out of the Bay area which provide a 9-5 low on call demand working conditions? Even if the company isn't a household name, please mention it.
- Tableau HyperJesusSeems really stupid to move to the bay for WLB. You are going to be competing against people that are working hard, and will get passed up for promotions and raises in a very expensive place to live. Just don’t plan on ever retiring, cost of living will rise faster then your TC.
- How do people with families manage then? I know the population is largely new college grads looking to make a lot of money moving up, but I've been there and have seen working moms and dads. Either they're superstars that have reached a managerial or director level OR they must be in a place with good wlb.
- No, they are not as lazy as you. Idk what to tell you since it’s not what you want to hear but people make sacrifices with the time they spend with their family in order to provide more opportunity for them.
Just stay at Microsoft or go to Tableau Kirkland if you want to get paid to do the bare minimum.
- I am not sure what your life situation is and quite frankly don't care but one day you may find you or your loved one in a situation where you have to make a trade off with how much you contribute to work or even leave the industry all together. Get out of your bubble and learn to empathize rather then make snap judgements. Also not all those who work at Microsoft are costing. I certainly am not hence why this question is being raised.Feb 92
- Personally, I like my 11 - 4 schedule, but don’t think it would be a problem if you want to stay for longer every day, they are really flexible.
- Some companies are known for having a lot of teams with aggressive deadlines and a strong move up or out culture. Although there are folks who are really good and do 9-5 at these places too, I am not there yet. I am self taught and for personal reasons do need a reasonable amount of time away from work for other responsibilities.
- I see what you're saying. I don't think it's like that everywhere in the Bay area. Yes the majority of places are like that but there are a)teams within companies that provide good wlb or b) companies on the whole that provide good wlb-these may not be household names but that's not a priority for me.
- Tyler Technologies njte44My company does and is extremely work/life balance friendly. PM me for more info
- Thanks. Do you all also happen to know if they hire non traditional programmers (I am one of those people who had to take time to build stuff on her own to learn the craft, leading to some gaps in my resume).
