Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I could really use some advice on my current employment situation (web developer) and whether it is helpful or harmful for me at this point. I'm not sure where I should ask such a question.

In general, questions that are specific to just you are not really appropriate for the Stack Exchange format. Perhaps you could try finding a local peer group and discussing the question over a beer or other socially acceptable beverage of your choice.

Only issue is I don't have any friends in similar fields. This is definitely a question specific to the industry, and I'm sure I'm not the only one in this situation! – Mahdi.Montgomery May 4 '12 at 20:08

Depends what your question is, but generally career development is on topic on The Workplace. It's not an IT specific site, so keeping your questions generally applicable is a plus, but you can get an impression of what's on topic by browsing the questions and our career development tag.

Expect advice from experts in professional matters not necessarily other programmers, but we have some software industry related questions and users.
