The problem with my current job is that even though I have lower level guys to do a lot of the easy/routine work for me, i'm the only one I can count on to do anything right when it comes to anything complicated because my employer started getting rid of people when they realized that g33k could do everything. I didn't mind because it meant i'd get to bill a lot of overtime and they wouldn't be able to complain, but they went a little too far with the firing and now i'm over-extended. They are going to have a big problem when i give notice in a couple of months. It would take even a highly capable guy several months to get up to speed on everything. There's just too many systems and so much of the coding was done in-house (by me).
