I know Blind is popular at Facebook, Microsoft, Uber and the other big tech companies, but what about the smaller techs and non tech comps?

      It was a bunch of trumped up accusations like "you have poor work ethic" and "you show poor organization skills". Also got in trouble for coming in late every day (which literally my whole team does because we ride the shuttle together and it's why stand up is at 9:30 instead of 9)

      Currently enjoying a few days of vacation while I wait for my appeal decision. I was able to appeal without changing the outcome so once his manager reviews the evidence I presented we'll see what's next. I can still choose to submit to the PIP or take the money and run to the unemployment office.

      I think it depends on where you are. It’s pretty great where I am (small enough team that I can’t say without doxing myself). If remote culture dies, most of engineering will leave when options vest.

      Good job turning Destiny 2 around, I quit and did not even play Osiris or Warmind as a hugely devoted Destiny 1 player (2000+ hours game time). I was so disappointed and disgusted with what Bungie did to my most favorite game ever. I bought the season pass never playing Osiris or Warmind, bit am back now since bounties and 6v6 pvp were added back in and Inlove it as much as D1. Addicted!

    I wish you could peek in to any company. No participation, just read only unless you’re an employee. Blind would blow up.
