Default Tech bros...how is your market outlook for this year

How is your company doing and what are some well paying companies that are still hiring at the moment?

My startup has had two rounds of layoffs in the last year and we have been on a hiring freeze since August last year. Business outlook for this year is not great either.

Looking to jump ship to a bigger company to wait out this bear market.

How old are you?

When young and little financial commitments, no mortgage or kids to put in school, joining a start-up is worthwhile to clock hands on experience in project and people management, and due to good upside potential.

Once you're in your 30s with responsibilities, consider settling down into management track in some stable big tech firm. Don't rock the boat career wise.

dont listen to this dumbass

joining a tech startup is the dumbest thing u can ever do. only people who do it are weird kids who think that they are god programmers and want more "say" in how things are done or losers who suck at leetcode and have no choice but to join trash startups that lowballs people and OTs them

word of advice, u wanna ask, go over to cscareerquestion reddit and ask on there or go on blind and ask there.

here's full of boomer retards who dont know **** about tech and just spout the same ******** "oh u young so can OT" logic over and over again

Awful advice.

Tech startups are notorious for poor engineering practices, low-ball pay and awful code quality. I'm not sure if you've worked in tech startups before, I have worked in 3 different AI startups before, so did many of my friends in other startup fields, crypto startups etc.

They were all awful. A quick google and you can find many bad reviews about them too. Most of the startup companies in Singapore are rated very poorly.

OP I strongly advice against joining tech startups.

People join FAANG to further their careers and work hard in those companies in their early years. If you can't join FAANG, next best bet is F500 companies.

This forum really needs a moderation system, misleading posts like this are very harmful to tech fresh grads and freshers looking to get into the market.

Please do some reflection, thanks.

On my third start-up now and doing well in terms of package. Locally, only Meta can match or exceed my current compensation. The trick is to join only well funded VC backed startups. Most local "startups" are really just SMEs with no real growth potential.

A lot of statements here just jumping the gun. Start ups are v good experience if these start ups are unicorns or unicorn type of potential. Usually these wont be your singaporean start ups (most of these are poor and sme kind) but those from other countries.

Unicorn startups easily > f500 companies imo. It varies but if the f500 company is not tech driven, it can be career suicide. I worked in both before, quit the f500 company in a month

Agreed but you forgot to add that having Big N / F500 companies on your resume is far better than some rando startup. Just becos you get paid highly in your startup doesnt mean its future proof anyway.

Was in carousell, pulling 8.8k as a junior then got laid off.

Biggest regret ever, before that I had offers from Accenture for 7.5k... my friends went there and they still have a job while I don't... shag sia
