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.

    Seems 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.

      Ya you should.

      Mostly turned off by your entitlement.

      How am I coming off entitled? I never asked for a high comp, a household name, or even mentioned my reason for wanting wlb. And that's specifically because of trolls like you who make snap judgements.

      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.

    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.

      I’ve been on a few teams over the years. Didn’t see much difference in WLB.

      Wow didn't know 11-4 was still a thing with a few teams at Google. Can you refer me for those teams? 😀

      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.

    If you wanted this why on earth would you live in the bay?

      I don't think location matters. As you can see from the responses there are a couple of places with good wlb.

      Location matters because until you are wealthy most people come to the bay to work their butt off and climb the ladder. If wlb is your priority why expose yourself to that environment?

      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.

    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).
