Neven Mrgan is a developer, designer, illustrator, film buff, musician, foodie and all-around nerd who currently works at Panic Software as a designer. If you follow his blog you’ll find he co-created one of the coolest iOS games to date, that he has good taste (that is, he like Tom Waits) and more than likely that you haven’t read enough good comic books. Don’t worry, he’ll provide a syllabus.
Here’s his stab at an answer to our first question:
Attempting a revolution is unlikely to work unless you have a serious, serious ace up your sleeves, such as being a singularly, incredibly valuable employee.
I would keep my eye on other, better places. In the meantime, work on things that make you happy on the side. They’re bound to get noticed and hopefully lead to better employment! I wouldn’t focus directly on finding another job; not because it won’t land you one, but because you’re, I think, more likely to be happy if you just find time for cool work because it is cool, because you like it.
I was in this exact situation 5 years ago. It sucked for a little while… until it no longer did.
