Actually, I don't think they have a high opinion of me. It's just the main managerial style. Programming here is more or less regarded as a blue collar occupation. Few times they implied that my past experiences are worthless, especially the Perl related ones. They also told us on multiple occasions that the most important skill for us consultants is managerial skill, rather than programming. They outright said that programming is an afterthought.

Keep in mind that they call us consultants, but we are none of them. We just hop from gig to gig without any preparation. The most poignant description of IT jobs in Italy is "body rental". Incidentally, this is illegal, but nonetheless overlooked by authorities due to few loopholes in the law. There are few if any software houses. The whole landscape is mainly made up of "consultancy" companies.

Anyway, I took on your suggestion and I'll make some side projects for growth and reward.

Training is everything

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
