Web Developer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Web Developer?

Web Developer in Scottsdale:
"The Best Thing I Ever Did."
Pros: Flexible Schedule, Range from Creating graphics to programming to analyzing data, so awesome.
Cons: All alone. I am the only person in my department so everything published or done is 100% on me.

Web Developer in Seattle:
"No One Knows What You Do."
Pros: You will sometimes get a God complex because most people look at code and get terrified and see a foreign language. The best part is you will always be learning something new, the languages evolve, new more efficient languages come out every day, and the best part is you get to solve creative puzzles everyday.
Cons: No one knows what you do so sometimes that can be great, they will think you're worth every penny, or they will think you're lazy and don't ever produce any tangible work. Also they can tend to think your a tool to be used to do whatever they want instead of taking your professional advice on best practices.

Web Developer in Rancho Cordova:
"New Puzzle Everyday."
Pros: That I get to expand my skills and learn something new everyday.
Cons: Deadlines and rolling out products before I feel they are ready.

Web Developer in Evanston:
"Work flexibility."
Pros: Being Creative.
Cons: Commute.

Web Developer in San Francisco:
"Bookkeeping."
Don't over-specialize. Be a "one-person project team". Learn online marketing, as well as technical skills. Teach online to learn more. If you work from home, figure out how to "leave work" for R&R. Have several skill sets, to help during times of national financial crises and to stay busy in one field during slow times in others. During financial hard times, increase your marketing, to get ahead of competitors who cut theirs. Above all, be a good listener, give appropriate professional advice without asking for money for every little thing and be really helpful - paid or not. If you show that you really like to help people, people will respond by hiring you.

Web Developer in San Francisco:
"So You Want To Be A Website Developer."
Listen to clients carefully (be a good listener). Give professional advice freely, paid or not. Show that you like to help people, the psycho-social reciprocity factor will prompt them to work with you. Don't be greedy. Do exceed expectations. Provide real creative value. Anyone can be a droid, but true creatives are very valuable. Don't over-specialize. Learn online marketing and persuasion and art and visual communication and tech skills. Outsource to expand the services you offer - you can be a project manager, even if you can't provide every skill set required for a project.

Web Developer in Stamford:
"A Great Dynamic Job."
Pros: A lot to learn. Respect of management for software engineers. Work with smart people.
