Before Blind, I had one job with “decent” pay. Now I have two, the second being preparation for interviews. Before, I didn’t care about TC or FAANG. Now I’m obsessed with them. Every time I compare my TC with other people’s, especially SWEs, it kinda depresses me. Ideally I’d like to get into FB/G as a DS. Granted DS doesn’t pay as well (RSUs) as SWE, but sure as hell it’ll beat my current TC.

1) Anyone judging me on Blind for using Blind is a MF hypocrite.
2) Anyone commenting on TC, happiness, greater purpose in life, and so forth: Post your TC or GTFO.
I challenge this assumption. Would you switch place with them?
I hear the Nepali taxi companies are handing out H1B visas like hot potatoes.
