My old manager gave a bonus loosely based off performance. This is not a codified thing, I'm not sure if there will be an annual bonus this time or what it will be.
0No
Small amount of options, fully vested, received as a bonus (in addition to separate cash bonus). Percentage is around 0.06%. Company has venture funding but no recent series. Very unlikely to IPO, fairly likely to sell.
Yes
I received no equity upon joining, however I received some fully vested options as a bonus later. I may or may not receive more in the future. This is not performance based.
Medical/Dental/Vision through JustWorks
No
My initial offer was 50,000. I took the offer without negotiating because I had no internship experience and very poor grades, so I took the first interview/offer I was given. Six months in, I was raised to 60,000. Another raise will be coming shortly.
6000012040-114590
The company and team is very small. Early on, I was working 50-60 hours a week. I would work some very late nights and some weekends. Things are much more stable now, and even with crunch time, I very rarely work more than 40 hours, although the senior engineer is currently working more than that.

Worked for 4 different companies. The last I was at for 6 years and I plan on being at this one for a while. I started with an internship and became a full time employee at my first company which I was at for 4 years total. I have made my way up and become a good engineer by hanging out and working with people smarter than me. Part of that is not sacrificing my standards of workplace. In other words I don't take a job with a company that is not full of people who are passionate about what they do and whose leaders care about software quality.

I started out working for my University's Museum IT department back in my Sophomore year. I also started doing freelance web contract work on the site. After graduating from college, I worked for a little over a year as a junior developer at a in-shore outsourcing company, mainly working with PHP and JS. At the same time, I also worked on a startup project with friends. After the startup failed, I moved to a different state and continued to work as a full stack web developer, transitioning from PHP to Python, C#, and Java as my backend language. I bounced around jobs every year until 2 years ago. I have worked for companies in finance, stock trading, and eCommerce before my current role.

Information Technology (Programming, Software Engineering or Computer Science concentration)
I started programming when I was in 7th grade, mainly motivated by video games. I had always wanted to learn more about how computers work, and eventually get into video game programming, AI, and robotics. I started out my college career as a Computer Science major at Michigan State. I didn't do well due to lack of motivations. The classes focused more on theories than actually teaching me to code. I switched to IT in my Sophomore year and started working as a IT assistant. My responsibilities at the time involved everything from keeping the servers running to updating web site designs, and programming the online membership signup and payment system. The classes in the IT curriculum were still boring and slow. I ended up learning more from that IT job than from my classes.

Started as a clerk - building a website for our dept and administering access databases. Eventually worked up in the Config Mgmt Dept as an analyst. I got brought onto a project team to build requirements for a new application. Turned out I was the only one who could code - so I started coding up a mock up - and that turned into the actual project. Stayed on that for a few years before accepting a formal developer role two years ago.

Anthropology[NOT LISTED]
Began as a Music Education major, switched to (and completed) Anthropology after four years of Music Ed. Almost switched to Computer Science instead, but went with Anthro. at the advice of a college career councilor who administered a "schwami test." Single best piece of advice I can give - do not decide on a degree based on how you feel about the result of a coin flip.
