    Which company has changed the world so far without sacrifing the need for money?

      Careerbuilder stop trolling, you are delusional if you think those companies haven’t changed the world.

      Clearly Facebook changed the world dramatically. Not necessarily in a good way, but it certainly changed the world.

      Facebook changed the world in what way, exactly? People were already doing everything both online and off that they do on FB. What, exactly, did they change?

  • I️ chose a project that is changing the world and that decision was worth the 20k difference to me. Makes me wanna get out of bed and gives me something interesting to talk to people about.

      New military tech is the opposite of the type of world changing we need...

    • In some ways yes. But a lot of it is amazing detection and avoidance tools.

      Call it what you want, but your company's creation and overall existence is to create and improve tools of war for profit. I'm glad your particular project is "for good" but don't lie to yourself/us about the bigger picture.

      lockheed does a crap ton more than just war products, but you'll never hear of it because you don't come close to having the clearance. Actually, most private contracting companies do. So don't preach about the big picture when you can't even see the full picture.

    • NASA is one of our biggest customers and most people agree they are badass. Only 1 of our 5 companies is solely for military. We do enormous things. Google it

      You can still do all that and change the world. You really aren't convinced that companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, etc haven't done that?

      20K what? Salary, bonus, total benefits? There's no context for this question.

      ^ Oh boy, you've been through a lot.
      Nov 18, 2017
    • I have. Got sick of all those internal ads saying xxx company is now powered by Intel, just because they bought a couple of new computers. That and getting paid like shit

      Now you're talking. I am also GTFO in 2 weeks.

    If you want to change the world, join Red Cross

      I dunno if that was an intentional joke but the american red cross is notorious for wasting money.

    You can do both. Work at a decent company to support yourself financially and get involved with volunteering/non-profits. I have found that this is a good way to do both.

    Money because most companies that "change the world" don't really improve it. You can do more good with cash.

    Interesting work often pays more and has better career development opportunities anyways.

  • Google / Eng UUKg61
    Only a small fraction of medical companies are changing the world by making people live longer. Rest everyone is trying to change by making people rich. Be it Hyperloop, SpaceX, Alphabet,Amazon, Facebook, the path to change is to break new frontiers so that more people are engaged in economic activity.

    So no harm in chasing money. You will make a change by doing this.

      Work for companies that pay you as if you are changing the world. Even if that means shoveling shit.
