- Not in my experience,. In my experience, software companies keep the long hours after they are out of "startup" phase.Apr 24, 2012
- I did some long hours projects in my early 20s, before i figured out it would never pay off. I dont know any professional coders locally who work more than 50 hours per week (regularly, we all have deadlines from time to time).
Maybe its different in the US, but personally I would never work like that again for something I didnt own.Apr 24, 2012
- The games industry seems to like people with low level skills regardless of age, and most new grads haven't experienced enough os or assembly idioms to really grok an original and good solution. Or maybe I've just been really lucky and shouldn't push it any further...Apr 24, 2012

- This is sadly very true. As long as you are interviewing with people your age you are ok. Put someone in their late 20's in the room with any sort of power of the decision and it's over.Apr 24, 2012
