voluntary pay cut – often unnecessary

A few times in my career I considered to (or did) take a pay cut, mostly to break into some domain or learn something hard to acquire, things like

* quant
* C++ HFT
* dotnet
* oracle DBA
* technical pre-sales
* threading, MOM for trading engine

Each time, it’s crucial to question and be critical about the promised benefits. Most of the time, we would regret the sacrifice.
