NOTE: I started writing this mid Marchish.  Here I am, 8 years later, standing on the edge of another precipice. Moving to a new job. That smoke jump into the unknown.  You can read reviews, look up the executives, read their mission statements, parse through and try and evaluate the Glassdoor reviews. But in the end it's a gut feeling from the people you talk to.  And now in the second year of the Covid-19 pandemic, it's not even 'meet people'. It's kind of sort of meet someone over zoom (with botchy mic output while both wearing what I assume are vietnam era chopper pilot headsets).  There is a groove to work. A familiarity with how things fit together, who gets back to you right away, who needs incessant prodding, what specific processes to ignore if you can at all help it,  office politics (which I've so far avoided like the plague) . So much of work is hundreds of individual other bits of works, the flotsam, the jetsam that becomes so much muscle memory tha
