there are no truly good jobs in tech
I had to anonymize myself for this one. Where I work now (and it was the same in my previous job) the tech world is the most miserable place to work. I cannot trust my coworkers, I cannot trust upper management, I can trust no one. Many people actually suck at the job, so to make themselves look better they seek others to tear down. The person I share a cube with has, on 3 occasions, attempted to get me either reprimanded or fired when nothing happened - they simply tried to manufacture drama and strife. Since tech is the only business I know, I have resigned myself to being miserable 50 plus hours a week until I die. You can be all pie in the sky about it, thinking there is some magic perfect job out there, but that isn't reality. There are no good jobs, no good places to work and no people you can actually trust. That is the reality of modern corporate workforce. I say this to warn kids getting into this career path - be prepared to be in shark infested waters for the whole of your career. Everyone is out to get you.
