I've recently started my career after working in another industry for a few years so I'm used to white collar. Buuuut I'm already so frustrated and feel like I can't take it anymore. I don't want to work under an asshole who doesn't know what he, himself, is even talking about, has ridiculous time-wasting requirements because he's not technical at all AND takes credit for my ideas. Turnover rate is around 2 months because most people can't deal with him.
I know bad bosses are common and I also know not every workplace is like this but I'm ready to tell him to shove it and never look back. I've started a small business in the past in a non-tech industry and now I'm wondering if I should just go back to that but this time, using my development skills. I miss the freedom, the control, and the thrill of working on something that I'm uncovering as I go along.
tl;dr I have less than a year's worth of software dev experience. Should I suck it up and chug along for another couple years to get more experience or seek the startup route?3
