Ah, same shit, man i feel like I read own rant before I knew devrant existed!
Welcome to devrant.
I work as solo dev at marketing company, first 1.5 year was cat-ass-torphy but I didnt complain, since first job after secondary school, my php code running on bizzare cheap share hosting... Im backend dev too, and before frontend (wordpress/html) guy actually dared to give a fuck about projects i have on, i produced many ugly-ass-shit bizzare things, as per request.
One time I dared to ask for linux server and I learned milion reasons why not. Cmon, its fucking 5 bucks on linode monthly...
Later i carried this company on financial side of things, i made some projects that earned me everyone's respect here, now, 3 years later, they know, if I say "I need server" that means better they give it to me.
Its insane how much i did for them when I sit back and think about it. I started here when it was 7 people squad. Now its 30 ppl...
Just look for another job... and let that company rot. A manager that cannot listen to his/her employees and thinks he/she has ownership of truth and knowledge... welll..let them!
Welcome to the 'professional' life, where one thing is certain: Everyday can be even more batshit crazy like the last one.
