    After how many titles Big threw up there and none of us had a clue, it was my turn.

    Little softer side but I am a fan. Lie is obviously a bad ass song. Who can't chill to that? Reminds me more of more electronic version of naked and famous.

    But if I was sitting in a hot tub at night and it was peaceful and I wanted music to accompany me - this is the jam. Insanely relaxing. If it's summer... how can you not just dive right into this song?




    edit: Similar artist - Jai Wolf. So damn good. I jam out to Indian Summer like once a day.

    The point was to turn you pleebs onto something good ;)

    Or I just had a Kids in the Hall sketch stuck in my head at a given time. Don't you dare act like KitH doesn't make life somewhat slightly less of a miserable slog towards death.

    I just dropped $1550 on my security deposit and a prorated rent for my new apartment. Ugh, that hurt. At least I don't owe any money for this apartment for any of July or August, so that's nice. I won't have to pay anything for rent until I'm a good 2 or 3 pay checks into my job, maybe even more if I decide on starting earlier than July 2nd.

    Yeah I'm working with NNL at the Bettis site, I've had this job offer since August. I was just trying to find something higher paying or something more relaxed.

    Thanks, it's not the perfect job, but hey, it's a job. If nothing else, I'll be able to pay the bills and feed myself :laugh:

    I've interned there in each of the last 2 summers, it's not bad. Most of the complaints I've heard involve limited upward mobility, but that's an issue for people who've been working there for longer. It's a good place to start your engineering career. The benefits are absolutely kick ass and the pay is actually solid for Pittsburgh. I start with 12 days of vacation (10 PTO days and 2 floating holidays) and it increases to 17 days after 2 or 3 years.

    Depends if you're okay with drinking cheap beer and fruity vodkas.

    I contracted at the Bill Gates building at CMU in Oakland a few years back. I'm not even an engineer I just knew someone who owned the contract.

    Engineering is fun as a job. Wish I could get employment doing HVAC or something. I only have a 2 year degree and 4 year military, neither of which qualify me into engineer work unfortunately.

    I know quite a few people there and they all seem to like it. I'd say about 1/4 of the south park ultimate league are people who work at Bettis :laugh: I've actually been thinking of applying myself. I don't actually have an engineering degree, but I have a Physics degree and have basically been doing industrial engineering work for the last 3 years.

    edit: the good thing where I'm at is that they do like to grow from within. So if we get bigger, I could move in to new positions that don't currently exist. And they don't care at all that my degree is completely unrelated to what we do :laugh:

    That's some good vacation. I have 7 years industry experience and only have 10 days. I mean, every other Friday off helps though.

    I also have the 9/80 schedule, it's so nice. They also made it more flexible recently, they went from having set Fridays off to being able to being able to pick which of 2 Fridays you want off in a 2 week period. You could go on an 11 day vacation from Sunday and only burn 4 vacation days.

    They hire a wide variety of people, you don't need an engineering degree to get a job there. There's a big R&D division there. Bettis also has a huge ultimate frisbee league, so it doesn't surprise me that you've met people who work there. I knew a bunch of people who worked there before I applied, they have over a thousand people working on the site.

    My only complaint with Bettis is that it doesn't seem like a good long term fit for me. We'll see if that changes, but I wouldn't be surprised to want to leave in 4 or 5 years.

    Yeah, I'm decent friends with some of them (the bar after is a staple of casual league frisbee :laugh: and a group of them was just on my winter league team) and they all told me there's jobs I could apply for. I'm gonna start keeping an eye out for Scientist positions especially. That said, I'm not really actively trying to leave my current job. 1000+ people would be a hell of a change for me. We've got just under 30.

    I think most people end up leaving their first job. In general I think the biggest pay increases come with job changes, not promotions.
