      Former political science graduate, now developer here. The unironic answer is to expose yourself to coding/programming and math for four hours a day minimum. Apart from figuring out quickly what the latest memeword industries are, you’ll reprogram how your mind thinks and stop being a philosophical zombie. The urge to build applications and eventually software will grow naturally from your new problem-solving cumulative-modular thinking patterns and while you still probably won’t ever make tens of millions of dollars, you’ll get into the comfortable millionaire slow lane simply by being incredibly useful to companies and people around you.

        45k was good for a single guy in the 90s, even in the LA area. Flyover country you could support a stay at home wife and two kids off 45k a year (presuming reasonable spending habits).

            I'm 45 and yes my dad made less than that and we lived just fine and even put my mom through college so she could do some teaching (which income wise didn't contribute shit but she liked doing it). Sure there was some tight times and The Frugal Gourmet was essentially a bible for our kitchen, but we lived comfortably enough. Probably helped nobody in the family smoked or really drank, and antenna TV was just fine so no cable israelite money vampire either, and we had a yard to garden and a good apple tree (well 50/50 if the crop was good on those).

            Worst was probably high school, where trigonometry class was actually TI-85 operations class, and if you were too much of a poorgay and couldn't afford your own you were SOL because the dozen or so the school could provide were a crapshoot if they worked or not and they wouldn't even teach you how to do any trigonometry on paper, it was all expensive calculator inputs only. So my math education did suffer.

          Depends on the person. It's more about what point of your sleep cycle you interrupt when you wake up than the total sleep length, especially with regard to how you feel. If I go 8 hours I feel sluggish; 6:30 is usually perfect for me. If something happens and I sleep beyond that, I've entered another REM cycle and waking up in the middle of that rather than before or after it is awful.

      You think once you make partner you get to stop working? If anything the partners work more than the associates. Although you do have an equity stake once you're a partner, so you're at least directly getting a cut of the business you bring in.

    He was making the equivalent of 90k in 2024 dollars. Its not poor, but its pretty shitty for an engineer with 15+ years in the field.

    There are a ton of massive corpo-style gov contractor engineering companies (BAE, lincoln labs, mitre, raytheon, etc) that pay good for entry engineering positions, but barely give any raises. If you last more than 5 years there, you're barely making more than you started, even with multiple promotions. There really isn't room to "grow" in those places. They would rather hire from external sources than promote/train internally.

    The "lifers" there tend to look miserable, and rarely make much money. Only middle management and upper management makes money.

      Oh and every one of those big gov contractor engineering sweat shops all has the exact same BS demonstrated in office space. moronic corperate policy that changes minor things often. printers that don't work. People asking you to come in at odd hours for useless BS (that really should be handled by someone else). So much bureaucracy that you end up spending more time answering emails, filling out forms, and doing quarterly "training" than actually doing engineering work.

      No wonder they seem to hemorrhage employees to the private sector. The pay is way better and the BS is lower.

    He probably made like 40k anon. It's not worth it to go through all that bullshit. You'll understand when you're old enough.

    humans weren't meant to sit and stare at a screen 8 hours a fricking day doing mindless shit. after you make a certain amount of money it just becomes unfulfilling.

    I quit my last job because I hated it and now I'm trying to get a new job but I feel like I'm just going to end up in another job I hate, if I even manage to get a job at all.

    Do nothing office jobs are soul sucking. I had one and worked maybe two hours a day, the rest was spent doing what I would at home, playing games and watching YouTube but I wanted to kill myself every night

      I don't even understand why these jobs exist, why are they paying people to do nothing but show up in a bunch of pointless Teams meetings scattered through the day?

        Because there is a LOT of free money to go around. What else are they going to do with it but hire friends and family?

    I got a cushy tech job, it's all meetings, I'm muted in all of them. Just play wow or watch tv shows while listening in. Don't think I've actually done anything productive at all in the past 8 months.

    You know that episode of Seinfeld where George gets hired to some firm and just sits in an office all day doing nothing and not even sure of what he's doing? I want that.

    No, I don't care about rotting away in an office. Leave me alone.

    Is it actually worth getting into CS/programming when AI is going to take all the jobs over the next decade?

      Right now the market is terrible. Layoffs everywhere, newgrads saturated, shit pay, you name it. But history repeats itself and tech is cyclical, so in 4-5 years that could all change and we could go back to the 2020 hiring bonanza. It's more about if it's something you could see yourself doing for the next 30 years/until retirement without burning out. Personally I think there will still be massive demand for software engineers in 10+ years even with the AI boom.

        How? You said it the market is shit and is oversaturated and it's not gonna get better since people are still gonna pursue it even with the saturation, but with AI that is going to reduce the jobs even more there will be somehow an even bigger demand in the future, yeah sure

          NTA, there's a good chance AI is near its peak and it'll probably only harm junior devs. But even then I doubt there'll be any full "junior" replacement for a long time, it's much better as an assistant for small things.
          Personally I've been using copilot to help learn, you can ask all sorts of dumb questions without being self conscious/wasting someone's time or needing to know the exact verbiage/keywords for a google search (assuming google feels like being helpful that day of course).

    He was literally going to therapy. He has depression. No amount of fulfillment work or money will cure depression. If it did then people like Robin Williams or Curt Cobain wouldn't have offed themselves.
