Been having some thoughts about work life as a developer/programmer
One of the reasons I want to go through a career path is a change in the atmosphere at work. It seems there is a growing trend to be moving to a ‘this is your job, get on with it’. The rising number of heads on management and meetings where people only talk about the company goals.
In a way, individuality is broken. I don’t feel able to bring much to the workplace and likewise, don’t get much from others. And that’s the point. from the moment one spends 8,10,12 hours a day at work, I want that time to be meaningful.
For those looking for a change - Is it the career change or the atmosphere change that is making you do so?
For those that did the change, whats your experience? Do you come to work, sit at your computer, do your stuff and go home? What kind of activities do you share with others? Is there a common space for meals/breaks or you just stay at your desk?
