comment When deciding on whether or not to work for a new company, what are your dealbreakers?
Are you serious? I'm paid to get things done - not to be in the office during specified hours. Fortunately, I have an employer (and team, manager, etc.) that gets that. It's possible for me to be in the office from 8am to 8pm every day and do nothing (and hopefully get fired for it); if I don't show up at all - or choose my own flexible hours, but get my work done, that's all that matters.

+1 - my second favorite programming book behind Code Complete (and honestly, sometimes, it's first)

Programmers are so judgemental. Yes - of course I tell them that "I'm not very good and that I may mess things up", but they tell me to go ahead and try...once.
