you may feel compelled to change parts of your lifestyle at some point: wardrobe, hobbies, conversational topics, and how you spend your spare time.

Conformity is the death of creativity. Conformity is also boring. A lot of people don't understand nor accept it, but software development is a creative field. You need a team with diversity, and that's not just gender or ethnicity.

As you mention, checking the culture and make of the company/team is important. If everybody is the same it will be soulless job.

Overall, great advice for anybody (including hiring managers.)
