I did my internship at a non-tech company a few years ago, then I know it was not what I wanted to do in my life!

Some of my experience working with "non-tech company":

  • There's a huge barrier when communicating with my superior & stakeholders that does not understand technical details
  • Most of the system is outsourced to companies overseas and it takes weeks for me to get into the system
  • I have to go through a lot of procedures & bureaucracy before making a decision (they're a big enterprise)
  • I don't have the opportunity to learn and grow professionally in the company because there are not many SWE I can learn from
