Far too many to detail
I've been in my chosen profession for 25 years now (shit, that makes me feel old). A few years ago, sick to the back teeth of poor decisions by senior management and bullying my middle management, I stepped out of my career path, and into contracting and consulting on some fairly specialised software. After a couple of years I became pretty good at it, to the point that I'm now one of the more highly skilled practitioners in my particular niche. I also experienced the wonderful ephiphany, that I no longer give a flying fuck about management decisions.

My job is to provide professional advice, I do that and do a pretty good job at it. When they ignore that advice, I walk away with my invoices paid and not a care in the world when things don't quite go the way of management's vision. If I'm really lucky, they'll call me back to do the same project a couple of months later, when things have gone titsup from ignoring my advice.

Hurrah for clueless managers, they keep me in business.
