this is probably more Cathartic than anything else but just want to say everyone here so lucky to be in tech. i moved from tech to media to what i thought would be career advancement.
everyday i deal with so many fucking morons.
cant do basic math.
cant do basic finance
zero business sense
all they can do is relationship build. i know thats important and dont want to discount its importance.
at microsoft people in my group were generally sharp. they dont know everything but you could argue and discuss at the same level.
i cant disclose my company but its a relatively large media business (~15B revenue ~50B mcap)
People in tech are not "lucky" but smart and work hard, LOL
