    dafuq is self-consciousness. You’re worried people will frown upon you working at an ‘evil’ company lmao? Optimize for pay/work/team/culture not ridiculous stuff like “self-consciousness”

      Self-consciousness in action. Notice I didn’t mention Facebook.

      Context matters as stated by self-consciousness tied to a specific company in the OP. Notice the lack of reading comprehension here.

      This person, zsax, generalized self-consciousness and how it’s negligible and I elaborated on why he was wrong. It’s applicable to any immoral company, not just Facebook. But the fact you are on here defending yourself goes to show that there is some frustration associated with self-consciousness that further proves my initial point.

      not sure if you're this dense in real life. You automatically infer i'm defending facebook in the context of self-consciousness when I didn't mention it explicitly in defense of that.

      Anyways, enjoy working at homeaway.

      Funny how you never once focused on the actual point I was trying to make. For the record I am at Fang now but homeaway was a good company fwiw, I wouldn’t mind going back.

    Lol..what a ridiculous poll... if tc is to be considered the same, why are your pros all about stocks, top pay, stock growth. Why this charade when all you care about is TC?
