    Most retire. I go to a lot of retirement parties these days.

      25 to 35. Obviously they eventually either go back to work, school, or start something after traveling the world etc. Lot of good parties though!

      You must be really old if your circles are always retiring.

      Yep, I am; especially for tech.

    I created a startup, sold it and I'm now founding my own church.

      There is no cult. You just send us 10% of all your pay checks and you are saved. No questions asked.

      So what makes you different from every other church? At least make your tithing 9% or something!

    • Pinterest UhmWho?
      Or 11%

      We have a single commendment (Pay 10% and you will be saved.) and no Gods, prophets, temples, gospel, masses or prays. We call it the Sacred Church of the Minimalist Religion.

      Some of our brothers and sisters also call it the NoBScism.

    Google was my first job out of college, did it for about a year (left last month). Still searching for jobs and interviewing at a shitton of places but I'm only doing that because it's a lot of fun. Looking at startups in SF right now mostly.

      @maryjane good job!

      @UhmWho? Not that badly! I'm really trying to expand my horizons, directly applied/indirectly applied/got referred to ~100 companies total, just finished my 5th onsite, about 3 more scheduled for next week and more coming up. I'm a people person so I'm having a hell of a time actually, going around everywhere and seeing what SF/silicon valley has to offer

      Actually Uber has many ex-Googlers.
      But I can’t image why someone would leave G or F and join Snapchat!

      Snap has a lot of ex G and FB as well. They aren’t gods.

    Going to leave Google and travel for 3-6 months and try to build a remote friendly business during that time. Wish me luck! And let me know if you want to join

    I see lots of ppl retiring early to do what their hearts desire, eg travel, write, etc.

    I also see lots of them leave for startups trying to hit the jackpot. Usually, it’s heavy enough in equity such that their eyes light up with $ signs.

      The worst manager I have had in my career was at FB. Great company. Infra hiring has gone down the drain
      Dec 2, 2017
    • Facebook morriskim
      Agreed. Most managers at FB are duchebags.

      Is there effort towards curbing or improving that? And how do you find the good ones?

      Curious, why?

      People are so nice at Intuit. Open ended product questions. Very customer focused (as opposed to google which was super eng focused)
      Dec 1, 2017
    • Intuit / Eng Redshirtz
      It’s already day 3 at google. Still day 1 at Intuit

    If I did, it would be for higher scope role at a top tier or near top tier company. It can be very hard to get promoted to highest levels at GOOG, and hard to get scope without those promotions. I enjoy jobs with broad responsibility, and I may need to go elsewhere to get there faster (probably with similar pay to staying at level in Google). It's hard to leave though. Great place to work.
