Re: CS career megathread / AMA

*pls don't quote

already told my current one the external company and the comp numbers verbally. issue is sharing the offer letter is ok or not.

California labor code 232 suggests it might be protected.

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

*pls don't quote

> letter itself or some specific agreement in your negotiations to this point there should not be any confidentiality.

the NDA says any confidential information or financials or any documents shared during or after interview process are considered confidential, can't be shared.
