My office is basically the same, engineer in Boston. All the perks like the free lattes and snacks make you starry eyed right away, but at the end of the day after a while they lose their appeal and the most important thing is finding a good place to work with good people, free popcorn every day doesn't mean shit but companies use stuff like that to boost their appearance in this competition of who has the hippest office these days.

The only perk worth it imo is having a nice cafeteria you can get good food at every day for cheap, my cafeteria serves shit like a restaurant and is cheaper than fast food which is super nice, everything else like the free lattes and snacks loses its appeal over time like I said. Also, why the fuck does she eat at her desk that's gross and makes the working area smell like food for everyone else.

Other than that, I have my own office with a closing door, as does every engineer where I work which is worth 10x more than any other perk.

Also do not forget about stuff like machine learning - there would be some people literally working on smarter botnets.

Do not look at these companies products as one thing. Thing about the support suit of products that they use and also future products that they plan to use. Google has a search engine + colab + firebase + docs + gmail + youtube + android + ............. 1000 more products.

>large social media platforms
It's true that front end developers like she is doesn't seem to make much sense. But these sites do a ton of A/B testing and small iterations to try to improve their product by slight margins.
Large changes are frowned upon because they imply risks. But an improvement that may seem completely insignificant makes a difference at their scale.

The majority of work is on the backend. Where you look to improve performance of the system to leave more room for user data analytics. That stuff is costly and they do it for a chance of cents when you click an ad for instance. And power savings is what they often tout. It's hard to know what's actually big for them.

Can you imagine how much good shit you'd find if you actually paid Google to give you the shit you want? Like you tip them whenever you find something of high quality that you like?
There's so much good stuff but the only place I find that is by using carefully curated social media accounts or following specific sources that tend to have high quality content.
If I could just pay Google to give me that shit I'd be so happy.

On top of that they should let you list your skills in a very detailed way. Most of what I find outside of those sources I mentioned is either way above my head or way way below me. If they could figure out the sweet spot for me that'd be great.

Hang coat. Plop laptop down on desk and connect cables. Shake the hand of colleague that always insist on doing that. Go to kitchen to make breakfast. Go back to desk and check email and slack messages, plus planning and jira board to see what work needs to be done. Do some programming untill stand up. Have a stand up of project I am currently on. Work till lunch. Have lunch with entire company (just in the office comp pays for bread and shit. Also its 30min). Go back to work. Maybe have a meeting or something. Grab so more food somewhere in the day. Go home at 4:00 (I arrived at 7:30 so thats 8h). Spend 1h 30m in public transport. Cycle home. Eat. Goof off for 2h. Go to bed. Rinse and repeat.

Can we get rough salary estimates for this amount of work you're putting in please anons?

I'm in financial services, working 45-50 hours a week (with absolutely zero downtime, even to check phone) with unpaid breaks and added responsibility, but for a salary higher than most people my age that I know. However, my work-life balance is almost nonexistent. I'd take a 20% cut if it meant I could have a schedule like some of yours.
