Unpopular opinion: I like my job.

Lots of negativity and anxiety on Blind. I'd like to change it up for a thread. You see, I actually like my job.

I do good work and so does my team. We get recognized and paid well for it. The projects are interesting and challenging. As a team we're accommodating to each other's needs, nice to each other, and look out for oneanother. Management is supportive, accommodating. Immediate manager is focused on encouraging personal growth, which makes projects come out even better since we can be careful about architecture and tool choice. The hours are normal and don't unreasonably infringe on life. We even give back to both local and web communities.

There are still some things I'd change, hardly anywhere is perfect. But I like my job a lot.

That's all.

Not listing TC or org. This applies to many, in many companies. And yes, I leetcode.

EDIT: not HR, and my team isn't hiring at the moment that I know of

    Awesome dude! You’re imho 100% spot on. Blind is full of negativity and bragging. Sometimes the best job is the one where things just click for you and it sounds like you have it.

    Best job I ever had was at a less prestigious company making half as much. I’d trade for that old job in a heartbeat if I knew the magic could be replicated.

      Same here, the best job I ever had paid shit, I worked twice as hard but I was happy. It was like a family. It was a startup. I miss it sometimes.

      They’re a commerce site. I imagine it’s very similar to whatever Amazon Retail does.

    Why leetcode if you're happy with your job? You're lying to yourself and want to get into FANG like the rest of us.
