Regarding 'Blind' toxicity & interview culture of this industry
Can we stop pretending here?
Having been on this platform the past few months, it amazes me that some of the extremely bigoted comments here exist and still float around and go unflagged. We see things that range from blatant xenophobic, sociopolitical sentiments across age, sex, gender, religion, to some of the most inane comments that you would think only a 13 year old could ever be capable of posting on the other side of that screen.
Yeah, I get it. This place [BLIND] is exactly meant for that. But we are seeing the same type of comments coming from folks at highly sought-after, respectable companies in SV, e.g, FAANG. Is this what this industry is really all about? We're talking about script kiddies, keyboard warriors, e-thugs...these people could easily be your hiring manager or teammate in your interview panel at your next onsite interview. And you wouldn't know any better.
You think that your performance on a Leetcode-eque interview panel is everything. Fuck that! Having seen some of the shit going on here, I'm starting to think that it's just a BS way to CYA because we don't want to hire YET ANOTHER [INSERT MINORITY GROUP HERE] that doesn't fit the mold of our highly fraternized industry. Let's stop pretending we're objective people here and we care about "how you think". Unless you're specialized, I beg to differ.
