One of my friends used to tell me that a lot of hot shot guys and people who made big bucks on Wall Street were doing it in hidden. How do the valley and FAANG folks deal with the stress? Do they use substances?

    Tech jobs are nowhere near as stressful as Wall Street Jobs. If you are a new hire in wall st expect to spend 12+ hours in the office. In tech it is a lot more chilled and relaxed.

      I saw this a few times. Folks drinking in the middle of the day in the workspace. Is this even allowed?
