Creative thinker foremost. I enjoy obsessing about fun problems and how to solve them logically. Programming to me is a little like playing with wordy Lego pieces.

Also, there is a fair amount of politics involved in those decisions, which I didn't want to get into. But, as an example, she has admitted to us that she hides from her boss the fact that the vendor products in question are very buggy, that their vendor support is mediocre, and that they cause a lot of issues. The reason she hides that is that she is afraid that her boss will tell her to get rid of the apps in question.

Thanks for the answer. There is other programming type of work available, but the boss won't take on it as she wants to focus her resources on the other stuff. She has been clear that her strategy consists of work that is "undesirable" to other groups (she brags about it). :)

Other than that, thank you all for your time and your kind responses. I've now got a better idea of how to navigate this phase of my career, and feel more reassured as well. Thank you!

Apologies, folks, for the cross posting. I noticed late that the workplace stackexchange was still in beta, and posted the same thing here. Given that it's been closed, it's moot now, but will not do again.

OK. I will try to rework it. Thanks for the feedback. I know it's a mouthful!
