Comment: QUIT! (Score 1) 445

Excuse me while I hijack this comment.

You should QUIT while you can. Start you own business while you are able to live with your parents, sleep in a car, eat beans and rice, etc.

If you wait until you have a spouse and kids, you are locked in. Your options become limited.

Also, LISTEN when you are told to start a retirement account NOW. Don't wait even a month.

If you are not the entrepreneurial type then get your attitude adjusted. You are part of a team and not just some cog. It's easy to think that but you'd be surprised at what happens when you stop thinking that and act like a team member. People start coming to you, relying on you, and you start getting promoted. Don't sit in your cubical and bitch and moan. If your environment that precludes that, then find another environment. You've already decided that you are not going to work for yourself so find the best people to work for.

That first one would have saved me a lot of grief. I graduated from a university where I would correct CS professors on a daily basis and brought an ego the size of Jupiter into a shop with some very, very smart UNIX devs with 15+ years experience. When the dot-bomb hit, there was no question of who should go. It was a humbling experience and probably the most useful to me. No matter how smart you think you are, there is always someone smarter. Be quiet and listen before you speak. You might learn something.
