I’m thinking of switching from my current research position to iOS developer. In my current position there is a lot of stress, and I work 12 hours a day and on weekends. And it’s very dependent on happiness, because you hope that you will always have brilliant ideas in your head (so you can publish papers and make patents), or you are dead.
What is it like as an iOS developer?
How many hours do you work a week?
How stressful is your job?
