        Pros

        The people there were wonderful. Although I had six managers in a 3+ years of working there, all of them were thoughtful and empathetic, and most of them were actually excellent people managers as well. I got to work on some interesting problems there.

        Cons

        There were a LOT of heavy, enterprise-level processes. Using GUS for managing issues was a nightmare. I think I was part of three or four significant reorgs which was also challenging.

                      What can I use these days on LinkedIn posts other than “exciting news” for everything thing that I want to announce to the tech community. “Exciting” news are starting to sound like “breaking” news; both have lost their meanings to me.

                      Question about tax - if I make 120k a year and I have another job that makes 5k a year, will that 5k a year job tax me at the same rate as the 120k a year job?
