comment How do you organize your projects?
@Carson Myers each of the top level items are projects, the second level items are folders within a project. Some of the top level items are projects that are compiled into dlls that are referenced by the other projects as needed.

Thanks for the links for the books, I already have a few of them but saw some others that I want to take a look at.

@WolfgangSenff I just want to clarify a tad bit. When he said he was being "demasculated" he specifically indicated that it was by our manager who is a man, and secondarily said by "our team" meaning me since he gets along really well with the other developer. He did include me in the comment but didn't single me out with it. Now having said that there have been other instances where he did make comments that I then reported to my manager who then actually called him in and addressed the issue. Thanks for the advice, but I will pass on it. :)

Unfortunately management above him tends to treat us like we are IT instead of Development. He really is the best option I have, I am cutting him a little bit of slack because he really has stepped up to the plate for me a couple of times. He also doesn't have much management experience and so far seems to be do a better job all the time. I have a meeting with him about all of this soon and I am hoping that we can come to some kind of agreement on where to go from here.

@S.Lott Part of the problem is that management has been dealing with him for so long that they expect the kind of difficulties that are happening.

@Vitor Braga 2) Yes he has said these things to me. I sat down with my manager and repeated them to him indicating that I would not stand for someone talking to me like that and things improved for a while but are now going downhill again.

@Vitor Braga 1) When I get a bit of extra time I will try to generalize this and remove the ranting. I just re-read it and you are correct that I was ranting. I do feel that even through the rant my situation is common enough to warrant answers.

Good point. I have not told my manager about this latest threat yet.

That would be nice except that there isn't anywhere to transfer to except out of the company, which is an option I am considering. Others have transferred out of the department in the past and changed careers in the process.
