    if you avg 2h per problem, 1000 leetcode is 2000 hours. 996 for a year results in an extra 1150 work hours in a year.

      2hr for 1 problem gets you nowhere, i am guessing.

      if someoneโ€™s already capable of solving every leetcode problem in 30 minutes, whatโ€™s the point of training?

      Most problems are easy and can be done in 10min, count 20min for medium and 30min for hard, 350k is not enough as lower than my current TC, but the choice between the two other options is easy

    Why is 350K such a big deal? FANGUD (A for airbnb) salaries are way higher I thought. Question should be what are you ready to do for a 500K TC.
