Very thoughtful piece here. As a developer with both professional and personal experience, it's great to hear that you are able to add insight for those new to their careers.
Respect and trust are two-way streets. And if both sides put some effort into these professional relationships, you can achieve some great things with that kind of honest and authentic communication.
I certainly wish I had this perspective instead of taking so long to leave my last domineering boss before losing countless hour of personal time and life.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
