Some advice to folks between 20-30 years old
1. Keep on learning, learn Leetcode, learn system design, learning ood, learning softskills.
2. Understand how to deal with politics, politics exists everywhere, Im glad that MSFT is one of the most political places in all tech companies. So I learn a lot.
3. Never settle, always chase a higher position, a higher tc. The earlier u accumulate the better chance that u will be a lifetime winner.
Once u enter your 30s, have family and kids, u will know that ur time will be greatly reduced, so it will become even harder for u to climb your career or make more money.
