Fuck ticketing systems man.. jumped from a good job that i previously thought was going to be a deadend and jobhopped to a new one with a significant salary increase. Problem is that The stress levels increased 5x, and there’s significant rush to complete tasks that have sub optimal descriptions to put it nicely. The problem with that is that the lead doesn’t have enough time to properly write them and catching him during work hours for him to explain them is sometimes impossible. Sitting in limbo with 4-5 tickets open, all of them with high priority and stresing the fuck out.

    Similar. I jumped (head hunted) for quite a good rise from what I thought was a dead end job too. I hate this new job more than I would’ve ever thought possible.
    FML. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    @PaaPsik you got a probation period? I’m going to get out before mine ends. One way or another.

    I’ve got the chance to go after either a job with the government or freelancing.
    I’ve flipped between the two constantly for the last week.
    Now I just don’t know.

    I’ve got tons of experience but freelancing still sounds a bit scary and I wonder if that also means never really bonding with people anymore (as I would probably be remote because work in my area is poor).

    At the same time I don’t know if I can go for a permanent role again. I don’t note if I can trust myself to spot the bad companies, put up with the politics, and all the other stuff forced on you. Like out of hours support, or someone else deciding the tech stack that you’re going to be using.

    Just don’t know what to do

    Wait, your lead writes all the tickets? That doesn't sound like it should be his job...

    @TrevorTheRat I’ve been doing freelance on the side for years now. Depends on the type of freelance - company outsourcing or you working directly with clients yourself. If it’s the latter one it should be fine and good. Just have to comb through the clients to avoid the non paying ones. If it’s the former.. sounds like a job for usually lower pay, less benefits and being replacable. I’d avoid it.
