Glad to hear it! And I hope I haven't written anything here that's too negative for you. There's much to love about this vocation. There are just some things that never seem to get better. And when they don't you can get kinda tired of them after 20+ years... But I'd recommend this life for nearly anyone who has the aptitude!

Oh don't worry! You haven't scared me off!

If anything, it's refreshing to hear that it isn't all sunshine and rainbows like the world of IT is sometimes portrayed. To me, this post has just highlighted a lot of things I've already heard a bit about but in more detail, and means that I won't get my hopes up and will at least be aware of some of these issues.
At least now I have a good baseline to compare any of my future companies with and will hopefully be able to tell when I've got it good!
