you know there's this strong belief [...] It's on everyone's lips [...] everybody's droning on about it.

I never hear anyone say this, unless they're recruiting for a specifically senior role.

Yes, some juniors can be a burden, but so can opinionated, set-in-their-ways seniors, and that lot are harder to get rid of anyway.

Most places I know welcome juniors!

I've heard it a lot. And people around me too. May be this has to do with my being a bootcamper? Or the type of companies I was interviewing with?

Hahaha, true that!

Wouldn't it be great if we had an open-sourced list of companies vetted by devs that ARE - and not marketing themselves as - truly great places to work with?
