Expectations of working for big companies do not always match the reality.
Working for a big name company doing cool and innovative stuff always sounds cool.
You can brag that you are contributing to a self-driving car, spaceship design or write code that will power new-gen AI.
But the truth is that your actual job may sound mind-blowing on paper when in reality you’ll be tasked to contribute a very small thing that takes months to develop…and sums up to a one-line explanation.
Not that fun, eh?
So do give yourself a good reality vs. expectations check when pitching your services to big names in the industry.
