Is it just me or are promotions here super inflated? I've seen people go from lvl 1 to staff in 3 years...after a while title's start to lose its meaning, when you know someone barely got out of college and is a "Senior Engineer"...thoughts?

    What I noticed is those people are the ones who work 24/7 a day even on sundays and Saturdays. Then they become critical to the company and keep getting promoted.

    It is true. Look at all the people in banking who are VP (and even Director) with very little experience. Titles are cheap and companies use it as a retention tool.

  • There are a few ways to keep employees happy at a shitty company. One is to pay them a lot. Another is to overpromote mediocre people.

    It's a one-way change. Once the culture has flipped there is no taking it back.

      I agree. AP seems to not have flipped there yet, don’t know about other orgs.

    It's definitely inconsistent across orgs...
