My best career choice: After 5 longass years, left a multinational consulting firm that constantly reminded me of my insignificance. Joined a small company to work on their flagship app. Learning sooo much.

Worst: NOT LEAVING THE CODE MONKEY SWEATSHOP SOON ENOUGH. ENDURING PAIN != WORKING HARD. THERE'S A PROBLEM WHEN SENIOR DEVS IN YOUR COMPANY ONLY UNDERSTAND PROCEDURAL PROGRAMMING. MANAGERS ONLY CARED ABOUT HOW MANY HOURS DEVS LOGGED WHICH TREATED A COGNITIVE INTENSIVE TASK AS MANUAL LABOR.

    Is procedural bad? 🤔

    @irene I wouldn't say that, but I would say understanding ONLY procedural shows quite a lack of open thinking.

    OOP has been here for decades, it's no longer this "new thing that is poorly understood or implemented".
    If a senior only understands procedural, it goes to show that at no point in their career did they had the curiosity to even look at what has become one of the most widely spread ways of doing their work. Nor at any other paradigm.

    What I respect and expect from a senior is first hand experience with multiple issues and solutions, not dated knowledge and mindset wrapped in an older person than me.
