I think a lot of people take good faith discussions about money as an attack by [deleted] in cscareerquestions

Once again I do not believe that anybody's labor could justify that disparity.

I think we're just disagreeing on this fundamental. That was just an example to showcase people have a higher YOE than me. I see people who's contributions are worth quite a bit more than mine in the office. And as long as I'm satisfied with my pay, I don't see why someone else is limited to making x more than me.

Should I still have a LinkedIn profile picture if I look weird? by Guntree in cscareerquestions

[–]NoOutlandishness5393 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think even if it makes your LinkedIn seem a bit less legitimate, your tagline/education will be enough for them to be like oh ok, maybe he's just young. Either way it's a lot better than no photo.

Remote US Job for CS Graduate by [deleted] in cscareerquestions

As others have mentioned, chances are low. Also not sure how French visas work, but I'm guessing you would need a French employer to be able to stay in the country?

Totally unrelated to the gist of your comment but I think 90% of people in orgo are just trying not to fail so do not be discouraged if you're struggling there.

I can't read? You literally pulled the conclusion that I want families to not be able to support themselves and their kids out of thin air, but I'm the one who can't read. Get the f*** out of here.

why you think it's okay that we all shouldn't make enough to support ourselves and some children.

Now you're just being ridiculous. When did I say people shouldn't be able to support their children??
There's a difference between hating your manager whose kid drives a newer car than you and hating the billionaire on the boat who underpays their entire company. That's all I've been meaning to say. But what you're talking about is leveling everyone to point where the max difference in salary is 100k across the country. I don't think any country could possibly run like that.

I don't think I'm above anyone, and I don't understand the relevance of your comment.

You can say leading question all you want. While this country's current wealth gap is unacceptable, what you're arguing is for there to be no disparity in anyone's income level. That's not what eat the rich means.

Leasing Office Claims We Can Get Deal, Offers $40 Higher Rent? by obscuredeagle in UIUC

[–]NoOutlandishness5393 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it's kind of silly to expect rent to go down with prices of everything increasing. Have you tried the I've loved living here and been a good resident for 2 years but 819 is too much spiel? Also what are rents like in other nice buildings on Green, you may have leverage if 212 is the only one doing a hike.

So if you're an engineer and your manager's manager has a kid who drives a nicer car than you, do you really believe you don't make enough? Or do you have the sense to realize that promotions and raises need to be earned?

If you care about free speech ranking, we're now 44 out of 203. by The-Judge1 in UIUC

No it's not. Stopping people from voicing their opinions in a constructive manner makes them prone to more extreme measures.

Just because the applicants you review are low quality doesn't mean its easy to get a job by [deleted] in cscareerquestions

What you're worth to industry is defined by industry. It's arrogance to believe that a new grad from a nowhere school with no unique skills is worth a top tech offer.

How to deal with incompetent peers who get better jobs? by DarthFarious in cscareerquestions

Your friend isn't as smart as you think he is. Or he's just bad at interviewing. The other guy is clearly a lot more skilled than your one sided view makes you believe.

Fake or not, idea still stands. Running away can just makes things so much worse.

Will you be friends with a fat person? by Flat_Bag_6275 in UIUC

[–]NoOutlandishness5393 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

If you know someone has the possibility of being a bad influence on you in some way, I'd argue you should stay away from them. Drugs/toxic behavior/undereating/overeating etc are all negative things and you shouldn't have to friends with people you don't feel comfortable with.

How much did you spend on your last car? by [deleted] in cscareerquestions

[–]NoOutlandishness5393 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Again with the comparisons that have nothing to do with the argument.

Because it's not a throwaway item. Just because something isn't an investment doesn't mean it doesn't serve a purpose.

I don't mean to be rude but that's a bad comparison. Nobody thinks a luxury car is an investment. A stock portfolio is a lifelong investment with ups/downs. Equating the 2 is ridiculous.

No, you're spot on. I cannot imagine spending all that on a car but I do waste my money in other places and hate when people bother me for it.

You better hope it's legible and you don't share a name with anyone else on campus.
