Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

If you are commuting using public transport instead of actively driving you can use that commute time to get work done, so it's not all bad.

OTOH, I moved to SoCal for a new job in July and I'm about a 30-60 minute commute depending on day of the week and time of day and am already pretty sure I will be paying the penalty to break my lease and pay an extra 1k/mo to be 5 minutes from work and get an extra bedroom. Going from a 5-10 minute commute in MN to the SoCal traffic has definitely sucked (although I LOVE it here otherwise).

Man going back to apartment living though

We'll see what happens during my first review here in a couple months and go from there I guess. Some possibility I get RSUs which incentivizes me a bit.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

Second onsite today. Only 4 panels in this one, I think I crushed the first 3 and struggled a little on the last one.

One thing that helps you do well on interviews: one of my interviewers gave me almost exactly the same problem as a DBAM guy gave me. It had to do with a matrix of numbers where numbers are sorted from left to right and from top to bottom, like so:

Code:
1 2 3 4
2 4 6 7
7 9 9 9
and how you can exploit the properties of that to find stuff quickly. I guess this is either a popular interview question or I got absurdly lucky on sample size. DBAM gave me a slightly more complicated version, which I struggled a little on a final perfectly-optimized solution for - count the number of occurrences of a number in the matrix - but today it was just, return whether or not a number exists in the matrix, ultimately getting to a O(m+n) solution if the matrix's dimensions are m by n (i.e. linear on the number of rows and columns, NOT on the total number of items in the matrix), and after my previous work on this problem I was super ready for it.

I don't really have an opinion on the technical merits of the service, I've never used them.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

There is always going to be problems when theory meets practice. In theory free-speech is great, but in practice there are way more *******s out there than anyone thought, and they don't get more timid when they find like minded people.

In the pre-internet days anonymity was useful for speaking truth to power. On the internet it is used to radicalize people and emboldens the worst views in society. The idea that exposure to the light is the best disinfectant for poisonous views only works when you know who to expose. I don't know what the answer is but it's going to involve some way to reduce anonymity.

It might also help to get some people who grew up with this technology making laws to regulate it instead of a bunch of grandpas trying to understand what their nephews are telling them about it...

Do you guys have some length of time without something better than a cost of living adjustment that you deem unacceptable or just feel like it's an ev loss? Or is that not something conforming to a standard

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

Depends on how much I am being paid and how much I feel I can make elsewhere. For example if I start a job and I feel I am being well for my skill set and experience and feel I can't make much more elsewhere without a ton of effort, I would be ok with only col increase. But after say 3 years, I may feel I have enough experience that I can make more elsewhere. If I start out underpaid, I may be ready to bail after a year. If overpaid, I could stay for 5 years. Just spitballing numbers here.

Unless there are extenuating circumstances I'd start looking if I got a raise that was CoL or less.

Makes sense. I am an a somewhat fortunate/unfortunate spot of being paid much higher than the norm for my experience in my area, and I consider the experience worthwhile. So overall, it's hard to make a firm decision on it. I don't want my ego to ruin a cushy gig.

Really? You expect more every single year? FTR I got 3.8% after 8 months. I would be highly disappointed to get that again this go round though

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

Your situation being somewhat overpaid for your experience is definitely something that would make me more likely not to start looking elsewhere. But in reality I think other companies aren't likely to balk since you have that to anchor negotiations.

But basically if you only get a CoL raise, they're saying your value is unchanged. In reality the added experience has made you more valuable and the experience in their org has increased your value for your employer specifically.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

Never hurts to go ask the market what they think you're worth in case it's out of whack with what you're making now. (I'm one to talk, doing this for the first time ~ever after 10 years of working as a programmer)

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

I could use some financial advice. I just signed up for the employee stock purchasing program at my new job.

When I sign up to the program the current stock price is locked in for 2 years. I can choose 1%-10% of my pre tax salary to be deducted from my paycheck and set aside (so no tax savings on that amount). After 6 months they buy stock for the set-aside amount. The price you buy at is either the locked in price if the stock went up or the latest price if it went down. Then you get a 15% discount on that buying price.

I'll have to pay income tax (45%ish) off the 15% discount and capital gains (22%) on any investment profits beyond the discount. I have the option of decreasing the percentage once during the 6 month period. At the end of the period I'm free to sell the stock or keep it, and re-enroll in the next 6 month period.

How does this sound? fairly standard? If I sell immediately the only way I can lose money is if the company goes busto (right?), but it is a fortune 500 so not much chance of that. I have some loans at 5-12% interest rate (mortgage, car loan, appliances). This should offer better returns than paying those down faster, right?

ESPp is a slam dunk. I was purchasing at less than half price for a couple of years recently.

Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

Yeah, if I had no loans it's def a slam-dunk. The stock is projected to rise by about 10% next quarter. I guess I just need to sit down and excel this out.
