Weekend Discussion

Friday February 25th, 2000

Most of our readers have jobs doing computer-related work. Not all of those readers find their jobs enjoyable. If you could have your ideal job in a computer-related field, what would it be? If you are in your ideal job, tell us why it is ideal. Related to that, how many hours a week do you work, and do you think it's reasonable? What would you consider a reasonable work week? We're interested in getting an international cross-section, so if you live outside the US, we'd love to hear from you as well.

I'm lucky to be one of the people who enjoys their job. I work in an R&D group so I get to do a lot of fun stuff. Right now I'm developing a cross-browser DHTML library of UI components and other stuff. I have quite a bit of fun, which is refreshing considering that my previous 3 jobs were at stuffy pharmaceutical companies. I work about 50 to 60 hours a week... probably will work longer when deadlines approach, but I really care about my work so don't really care how many hours I'm at my desk.
