    I worked at a large Swiss bank (different one, this time). When I left to go freelance, I discovered that they had to advertise for three people to replace me. It wasn't that I was doing three loads of work (only 1.5, actually), but I was and am a generalist, able to cover multiple programming languages, development systems and tasks. I covered such a wide spectrum of tasks that they had no other choice, unless they could find another generalist. Being a generalist is now a problem, as employers are looking for cheap specialists and beginners.
