Today I am tired of the corporate life.

I enjoy my salary, but I'm kind of tired of the arguing, the persuading, the talking to people and trying to match mutually opposing interests. And, of course, the people who are uneducated/ignorant but have the conceit they know it all. That's always fun.

I'm pushing to the next level of the corporate ladder: it involves human coordination a lot more than it does coding. And it's just wearying uninteresting. Good ideas are dropped on the floor because business priorities, constantly. People don't get the situation and want to push for their own personal wotsits. Terrible technologies are used and preferred, because it helps hire the common person, not the competent person.

I share this more than I can emphatically state right now. I am completely burnt out on coding, but the next level up was worse for me at my last employer than it has been at others, probably because they were $BIGCORP and that specifically caused the issues, not because of anything else.

I'm still contemplating what the next step is for me, I've been off of work for about 18 months due to illness and I don't know if I try and climb back on the horse or just go into more rewarding volunteer work from here on out.
