      I‘m 35 and make $700k a year with a great wife and two awesome young kids. Yet I feel like my life is empty. I miss the freedom to do whatever I want whenever I want.

      That's because you are a corporate wage slave. My advice is to get a remote job or/and start a business. You already capped out at Amazon and you need a grind.

      If you don't have a high risk tolerance and a core member to your Amazon team, I'd get another offer and tell them you are quitting unless you can work remote (give a BS reason like your mom needs day care)

      Also, you live in Seattle so your options are limited. I'd suggest moving out of Seattle to where girls live. I don't want you to die single.

      We are on a fast decline. Cisco got lucky with the tax reform. Management is really good at laying off the best engineers and then they get better jobs at Microsoft and Google.

    How do I find remote job that pays well?
    Apr 19, 2018 1
    • Cisco SageWizard
      OP
      So I tried applying everywhere like remoteok, big name companies like GitHub, elastic search, etc.
      It's a crap shoot cause everyone else is.

      I got my amazing job by teaching myself modern web because React devs are in demand. And then I put on my LinkedIn "My dream job would be a remote position in XXX"

      A recruiter reached out to me. And the job looked cool because it was my "dream job". I didn't even realize it was a remote position until the second phone screen. Lol. And I got an offer.

      Another option is too apply to companies like Cisco and SAP. They aren't a remote first company but you can wing it on the right team.

    How is Identity Politics dividing society?
    Apr 19, 2018 2
    • Cisco SageWizard
      OP
      The gap is widing every year as weak minded members of soceity are more connected to victim support groups. Thsse people are so deeply rooted to their culture that anything upsets them. And This is due the political correct status quo, acceptance of bad behavior, echo chambers, etc. Ironically these support groups are encouraging these victims to seek out the very substance that damages them instead of focusing on self improvement and the general wealth of others in society. If we encouraged more boundaries, followed the science, and encouraged good behavior; people will behave as a reasonable human of society. But instead, we accept fucking nonsense. Like climate change being fake, religion as a truth, certain personality expressions, conversative censorship, environmental damage, etc. The alt right and hard left has now fucked the middle 50% with their politic shit show.

      Unless you are making 250k+, Buy a used car because reoccurring costs suck and the fun fads faster.

      Spaces because you can't align parameters on a new line. 2 spaces for webdev since HTML gets nested. Spaces are consistent across different platforms.

    How do I snag more RSUs from Cisco? They seem quite strict about it.

    • Cisco Sir Chad
      This is easy. You get an offer from Microsoft and Cisco will counter offer more money and RSUs. You'll end up quitting anyways cause MS is a better company.

      You need master's or you need to apply to companies in Saudi Arabia or Dubai if you want to stay in mech.
      Either way you need to grind and study if you don't have what you want.

      Why Saudi? I'm a US citizen, went to a highly ranked university for BS and MS. I'm a full American btw, East Asian but born in the US. Only went to Infosys because it was the only offer I got for data science. Left mech E because it was boring, now trying to get into DS

      Saudi is hiring mech engineers from the US. I'd apply to Cisco tier companies as a DS and do your time. It's kinda like going to prison though.

      1) Have you played Minecraft? There's no purpose, you do something cool and enjoy it.

      2) Neither. FIRE is as cool as watching paint dry. It's pointless to see 7% returns on baby money. You're better off starting a biz and doing research on small cap investments and watching your money x10.
