Real, seriously honest feedback wanted.
What do you do when you are stuck at a place that has potential but it is being run by someone with the wrong idea?
For example: not to toot my own horn, but I shine at front end Development. Not just slicing up designs, but seriously creating amazing user experiences. And honestly, there is no shortage of work for that ... every client we have has an expectation that their site or application will look awesome. And we have some very big clients.
That said, the manager truly believes that we are all inter-changeable and should have no preference. As a result, John Doe over there who has zero ability in front end gets tasked with building the front end of what should be an amazing app... while I eventually get tasked with some sitecore bullshit that I have no interest in.
And it goes on and on and on.
It is no coincidence that anytime the dice land on me for front end, it wins an award and always ends with an awesome thank you from the customer.

I am not sure what to do, because it just makes no sense to me. And this is just one example of the mismanagement.

Any help?

    @g-m-f that is what I am thinking. I do have a wife and kids to think about.

    They have potential, but they are throwing it away... mainly because I think there a couple of people who have enforced this inter-change ability so much that they can’t back out now.

    I get so confused. Like why on earth would you ask a sitecore backend developer to slice up a new landing page that you intend to win an award with? Or why would you ask your front end guy to optimize 100 or so MySQL queries in some legacy system? Such a waste of talent and money.

    @g-m-f the hardest thing to accept at this point is why management thinks performing my job to the best of my ability is not “in the scope of the project”
    If the budget doesn’t allow for our best work, we should not have accepted the job.

    We have huge clients. Tons of money, I don’t see the issue.
