  • 6 months ago I was able to walk out of a job, and find another senior role, with better pay, prospects and technology (including R&D and possible decent training), and they were a good outfit to work for.

    Unfortunately I had to leave because of problems with my wife's health that required me to work from home - although they were very reasonable and if it wasn't so bad I could probably have stayed.

    Anyway - I found a contractor position where I was able to work from home pretty quickly, and although I may complain on irc about the usual problems you have in development it's not your usual web stuff but interesting, complex and challenging problems and interesting clever people.

    Since I've been there I've been looking at finding additional contractors and not had a problem finding reasonably skilled people, despite the rural location (devon, but mostly tele-working) and (relatively) low rates.

    Of course this is just anecdotal, but so is the griping about how hard it is. I guess people's expectations are too high and both employers and employees aren't prepared to compromise enough.
