Faustian Bargain

I sold my soul to the devil I know it was a crappy deal, At least it came with a few toys like a happy meal - Eyes Closed, Kanye West

The story of Faust is one in which he sells his soul to the devil in exchange for infinite knowledge and wordly pleasures. A faustian bargain.

Working for many, not all, big tech companies seems to me like a faustian bargain. Where these corporations have a net negative impact on the world but workers are blinded by the luster of large salaries, benefits, and prestige.
