    I thought this would be interesting to see the outcome. Many of times we hear forum members looking for new roles or fed up with old roles - lets put a bit of a positive element to your job.

    This is simple, name 1 thing you like about your job.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Mine: The freedom to learn new technology with the support of the company. While not always available, they offer to pay towards exams/courses or at least give me the odd day off for any exams/revision.

    IT is always changing, I'm glad my company can see the benefit of always learning.

    Having a reputation good and strong enough that I can spend pretty much all day doing what I like and people assume it's work related :twisted:

    Um seriously... The pool table in the middle of the office.

    Second thought, the people I work with who are really cool. How many people regularly shoot their boss and co-workers in the face on MW3 :snipersmi :).

    Same here within reason*. Plus, flexibility.

    It does help that I'm the IT manager :)

    There are a lot of things that I like about my current job, but it is in the past now, or at least it will be tomorrow at 5.30.
    Things I will miss: the banter, alpha-geek's obscure but amazing fixes. Being part of a team rather than "management".
    Things I won't miss: can you just confirm your date of birth before I reset one of the 30 passwords you've managed to forget this week.

    One thing I like: I am almost autonomous. There is noone else in IT in an organisation of 50 people / 60 machines, so a lot of what I do is curiosity driven.

    Things I dislike: noone to learn from, noone to bounce ideas off. Being called in when I am leave because BT have severed the line again (despite there being clear guidance on what to do in such an event), and chiefly amongst most things: being treated like dirt by people who can barely use a computer, and then question your every decision.

    Working at the forefront of cloud computing and playing with several datacentres worth of brand new (as well as the seriously old) kit.

    Oh, and not having to deal with end users, ever :D

    hmmm, got any jobs going? :)

    My job is ok, but I have no security, the pay is poor seeing as I am the ICT Tech, Trainer and Supervisor but the thing that really grinds my gears, is there is not any appreciation even though I created the departments first Knowledgebase, but hey ho
