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)

      Going back at right level and right role is hard in business after certain level. ~66+ now.

      Yeah, but not impossible, right? Consider not only Microsoft but other tech companies. A lot of them hire aggressively now.

  • LOL ignorance != morons. They just decided to learn and excel at something else: relationship building or whatever media field needs. They could say the same thing about something you’re not good at. Find others outside of work to have your “discussions at the same level”

    Don't you need to pass basic SAT math test to get into college? The media company hires people who didn't go to college? Besides that, there are also penty of people don't know anything about finance and business in tech companies.
