comment How can my team move away from record-and-playback when not everyone has scripting experience?
+1 for DSLs (Domain Specific Languages - like Cucumber's Gherkin) that allow people to write scripts in English or near-English with code-behind written by a developer.

comment Is my pay fair, just based on the fact I have little experience
Great answer. Career-building skills and experience are worth more early in your career than salary these days. At the same time, don't be afraid to move on if you can get a better offer - as long as you can learn in your new position also.

comment Are Exhaustive “Brute Force” UI Tests Worth It?
Another point on UI testing for the wrong reasons: Resorting to rigorous UI testing can be a sign of untestable code, that isn't being tested at lower levels well enough. UI testing should be essentially just making sure the UI responds the way it should - and not functionality testing (with some exceptions, e.g., end to end tests). Unit tests, API tests, component tests, etc. should cover functionality. UI tests should be a small part of the overall testing effort in most cases.

Do you know where you read this? A link might help us understand the context of what this person meant by "functional testing".
