I'm a baby at 25 with an entire year of professional developer work behind me! Rest of my time has been in infrastructure work and getting my software engineering degree.

I'm about to start a job and a junior SRE for a well established software company that's looking to radically expand and I have no idea what to expect.

This post is an awesome insight into some of the things I should expect out there! Thanks for sharing!

Looking forward to following your future posts!

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!
