I am the entire IT department here. That is network admin, DBA, helpdesk, programmer you name it in IT and I'm it.
It has its perks but it certainly has is downsides as well.
When it comes to programming, the major downside is having absolutely nobody to talk to face to face to bounce ideas or problems off of. And no one to lean on for help. Since I graduated in 2010 with my programming degree(worked for 20 years in an entirely different field and never had anything to do with computers), I do not have years of experience to lean on so Google gets a workout some days.
 
The upside is mainly, good experience on the resume(two years out of school and one of those years has been as IT manager), I learn a LOT by necessity, and as long as I am doing my job, there is almost zero chance I will get downsized or laid off unless the company goes under.
 
Flipside to that last one however, if I do screw up, not much question on who did it....

Be careful which toes you step on today, they might be connected to the foot that kicks your butt tomorrow.
 
You can't scare me, I have children.
