- As an employee? Doing what?
As somebody who has stock?
With a chase checking account?
- Chase tyanux1Okay place to be for a year or so to transition from a junior script kiddie to a mid level dev contingent on joining a greenfield project. If it's greenfield, you'll learn the technical, political and cover-your-*** needs for an enterprise application to succeed.
Other than that, pay can be good, quite stable job and pretty chill (depending on team). Skill levels vary between teams, core team tend to have better people obviously.
Pro tip 1: avoid joining maintenance/support/mature applications at all cost
Pro tip 2: rejoin as an ED - the political jungle is a vibrant place, far more exciting than being a dev
Pro tip 3: rejoin as a senior VP - you literally get to make all technical decisions and work on the cool stuff (unless test coverage and UI buttons are your thing, then join as an analyst)
- Amazon / Eng deanjefWhat's a senior VP? I thought they only have one job level - 603 for VP
- For a tech job? AVOID. Unless you're a boring, incapable person who just wants to wear a nice suit and pretend they know stuff.
Good: Nice clean office and people wearing nice suits and stuff lol
Bad: Everything else
You'll end up spending all your energy to learn how to navigate and interact with incompetent members who somehow managed their way into a tech role at a bank. And yes, it's a bank at the end of the day.
And it's soooo SLOW! It takes forever to get anything done (if it does get done).
