comment Is it normal for a company to have programmers on such a rigid schedule?
Ah yes, that satellite TV company is infamous around here among IT professionals. Not surprisingly, they're continuously advertising for more IT people.

comment Which job opportunity is better? The one with the most learning potential or the most teaching potential?
Wow--your answer matches my current sentiments almost exactly. I'd really like to be surrounded by rock stars who are eager to share their knowledge, but I've not yet found that. The closest I came was a consulting shop, but then everybody was slave to billable time. Knowledge sharing destroyed the estimates.

I think you're right. It's so hard to get a read on a company during a one hour interview--my assessment could be completely off base on both. But hopefully each place is a little of each in reality. Finally, I think learning should be highly valued by any developer, regardless of years of experience, so I don't think your disclaimer is necessary.

comment Why is Reflector such an essential utility?
I've heard quite a bit about the pain associated with SharePoint development and have stayed away mainly for that reason. On the other hand, it seems like a high demand and well compensated specialty.

You seem to have hit on the major reasons. Perhaps I should consider myself lucky for not having found myself in those situations very often, if at all.
