TC or GTFO? Help if you can or STFU.

I joined Blind recently and I am seeing these TC or GTFO comments very often. The problem is, even for a non compensation related question, they are forcing you to put your TC. Why in hell a person need to tell his TC if he just wants to know culture in some other company? What the fuck is wrong with you people? If you have a crazy ass TC and wanna show off, sure brag about your TC. If I don't wanna tell my TC, respect that. Not every single person will have the same 900K base with 1B/4 RSUs. These TC freaks are making other members paranoid by posting huge ass TCs and I seriously doubt that half of them aren't even true.

Also, while evaluating the offer comps, these people are taking it to a next level and making OPs ask for unrealistic RSUs sometimes or making them paranoid for getting low balled and accepting it. They got an offer for God's sake. Let them celebrate it instead of making them feel sad about their TC by harsh comments. They will anyways feel sad once they join and discuss with their colleagues. And NO, this post doesn't need to have my TC as the message is being conveyed easily so stop TC'ing around.

If you are capable enough to answer a ques and want to help a person out, do it. Else STFU. Stop asking for TC for irrelevant shit. You creeps are no less than idiots who come up with new acronyms each day.

PS: I am not from any BANGMEFULLMOFU.

    The point here is, if TC is so important, Blind should have made it mandatory to add TC while posting a post under Compensation tag. There is no need for someone to tell his TC when he wants to know about health benefits or culture or wlb in a company.

    Also, while evaluating the offer comps, these people have taken it to a next level and making OPs ask for unrealistic RSUs sometimes or making them paranoid for getting low balled. They got an offer for fucks sake let them celbrate it instead of making them feel sad about their TC. They will anyways feel sad once they join and discuss with their colleagues.

    Blind should ask TC when signing up on this app and display it on people's profiles so people stop asking it, but it's illegal in states like Washington and California to be asked to disclose TC to companies.

      What makes you think I don't do leetcode and that I am not from FAANGMULLA? Going by my company tag and my post? Its a troll you dumb ass! I was giving you a compliment here you fake idiot and you don't even understand that. Watch your language there. Going by your comment and username, I highly doubt you do any LC. Are you doing reddit instead?

      What Osca said, there’s also information asymmetry in negotiations between companies and individuals, blind is supposed to help with evening the playing field, and yes cost of living varies drastically across locations. TC or GTFO is a good way for people to trade information they have for information that the rest of the community might have.
      Also you’re anonymous wtf do you care that people know your TC?

    OP, I am loathe to have to explain this to you, you seem so earnest, yet full of bile and righteousness.
    It’s a fucking joke, ok. It is a greeting. A closing. A welcome. A sign off. A shared chuckle. We’re stickin’ it to the man, while he’s stickin’ it to us.
    And if you don’t lighten up a little frances, we’re going to kick you out of the club.

    TC: 327k

      OP
      Thanks! First of all, its a joke and a troll to light up others. Also., it didn't seem relevant to me asking for TC for non comp questions regarding work environment or tech stack or immigration.

      I myself follow compensations in blind and they do help people out in negotiating and getting a real idea and also giving them a motivation to push further. No offense here. Hope you got my point!

      Well, Cerner is a health IT company. When you become old and join a hospital. Most likely, the doctor or nurse uses Cerner software to pull your details and health history up. I don't think most of us need Amazon even in our death bed though.

      Not afraid of the trolls lol. They are insecure about their TC anyways. No matter how much you earn, you will never be satisfied.
