      Okay sorry was trying to help you with information didn’t know you would go hunt for info from 10 years ago lol.. but yes you’re right we’re not a B2C company and never will be so those products never had a chance.. but if you look at google they have all the top talent in the world when it comes to SWE, yet what do they have to show for it??? Answer honestly pls

      I think failure is a critical part of innovation..the more new things a company will venture into, the probability of risk and reward both high.Because that has never done even by research or academics..Companies with less failure play safe and follow the leader..but if you want to be the leader, out of 10things you launch 6you may fail..to even try the uncertain/impossible ventures, u need smartest ppl to decode that problem! So i dont think success is not only measured by failures..google’s failure learnings must have saved the follower company’s money/time-so still a leader in my head!

      btw the topic wasnt should i try for google? i am already trying, need some help!

      Sure but that i can do with any good jump..if only TC is concern, why would i go through practicing system design and algorithm right?😊

      I think 210k is above the median for L6 non-tech PM
