Good WLB helps with jumping ship?

Jan 15 22 Comments

Wlb here sucks so we don't have time leetcode and interview, wondering ppl from companies with excellent wlb like LinkedIn, Dropbox, Pinterest, Microsoft, salesforce, etc, why don't you leetcode and interview a bunch to get that sweet TC bump?
This question is specific to ppl who are underpaid.

TC: 260k

      @JkNB04, I genuinely don't understand why ppl at MSFT makes less than 200k with 5 YOE still choose to stay while they probably can make double elsewhere, especially given that they have so much free time to prepare for interviews, hence the question.

      Either they are too comfortable, they procrastinate, they suck, they don't know, they have visa issues / insecurities. Pick any

    Excellent WLB also means they would NOT want to jump ship.

    Some people value 20 hour work weeks and 6 week vacations.

      Linkedin offers are pretty good.
      Refresher sucks, but your pay is still good for the next 4 years, so that’s hardly a concern. Almost everyone jumps ship after 4 years of enjoying WLB and amazing food!

      I thought this wasn't true in Azure

      That’s probably true, but then it makes no sense for those folks to work at MSft.
      I just meant some of those companies have best pay per hour.

    DBX IMO is the sweet spot. TC is great and wlb is great. Afaik jumping to fb I can make 15% more and the stress is not worth 15%.
