In your opinion, what are the most difficult jobs in IT?
Also, the most rewarding?
Is TC asking which pays better, etc in terms of System administration, network administration, security, etc? It sounds like you're trying to decide which route to take.
I am curious if there are many non-management positions in the field that pay ~$200k and what they are.
I have some experience scripting with bash/perl and some experience with VB6, C++, & Java, I am thinking of maybe being a developer, but it seems like everything I would want to do requires a different language and that has kind of prevented me from really committing to one and running with it. I have also heard being a "programmer" for some companies can be dull and unrewarding sometimes.
