A few years back I was "an island" - the only one doing GIS software while the other seven developers worked on the real stuff (small company, n=40). I enjoyed being a loner at first - got to do research, learn new stuff, create on my own, etc. Then reality kicked me: as a loner there was no design [other than me], no project management [other than me] and very little testing [other than me]. No design meant that what I produced wasn't liked because I designed it. No project management meant nothing was or even could be on time. It sucked. I did good work and produced some really nice, functional stuff but no one was happy.

There. I said it.
