    Just play their games: if you want challenging goals, I would suggest you, when you are allowed to write new lines of code, to design something which can potentially explode in the most amazing and weird ways in very particular conditions or if they are copied/pasted.

    Hi Friend.

    I read it today. This happens to me "MANY" times. This is because of the enthusiasm you possessing to learn more. It happened to me even for my last company(Currently I am working Self). What I learned is that , for the life you need money .For that you have to work (Most employers only bothered about the "BUSINESS" not bothered about employee or his interest).If you have enough money resign the job and do work for you (and learn what you want to learn. Now Google is there you can learn any new technology if you are willing to learn).
    Good Luck !

    After a skim read I already think it's a bit of a cliche - it's not just, this type of behaviour is present in many, many companies. That's why nothing beats working for yourself.
