Well, that mostly describes me, but I did get a slight
hankering when I bumped my head on the classification ceiling
several years ago, and we chatted about hiring some juniors
for me to mold, as the company grew.

Then the DOT-Bomb hit and we chopped more than half the
company, then took an across-the-board pay cut and a
hiring freeze for a couple of years in order to stay
in business.

Then we got bought. Then we got bought again. We're being
kept as a development entity, with our marketing, finance
and other support functions (that were needed locally when
we were a stand-alone company) being stripped away to a
foreign head-office. So I'm working for an entity that's
actually even smaller than previously. Only slightly
larger than when I was hired, though now weighted almost
entirely to Engineering.

Pay is decent. Bennies have been good, and should continue
so. Co-workers are a really good bunch. If the future has
taken on a certain sameness, at least it's a pleasant and
professionally congenial sameness. :-)
