>Separately if you live your life in service to a bohemeth, learning nonreproducible skills in maneuvering their bureaucracy you are likely to have a miserable pointless career.

If are a bigco and you actually care about doing a good job, you should try to find the groups where you are recognized for doing a good job and being innovative. I've worked for bigco's and seen everything from the "Analytics Expert" who spends all day rearranging slides and survives by navigating the bureaucracy, to people who are building services on top of AWS. Plenty of people are content to just do the bare minimum and find the bigco groups that allow them to do this. Don't be in that group.
