I live in Tennessee. I have around 1.75 years of work experience (employed) as a web application developer. I worked for 3 companies so far. The first for 8 months, the second as a temp contract for 3 months, and my current one for about 9 months.
One thing I love about this job is the flexibility. I work remote as of now and I can dictate my work hours. I get PLENTY of free time. I am not micromanaged whatsoever. We will be going back into the office in December, but it will be hybrid.
My only complaint is my salary. I make a decent income despite not having a college degree, but I am looking up the average salaries for web developers and they are higher, sometimes as much as $15k-$30k. The average salary data is not consistent though. I am making $45k/year right now with 75% of my benefits covered.
