An ad that says "your boss will a Dilbert character", and you have to
work with a bunch of old people. ROTFLMAO

interacting with clients, AND programing. That makes me wonder if the
new person would be part of an IT team and what size is the team,
because doing all of that or even some of all of that seems like it
could easily snowball into waaay too much work for just one person.

Those are things that are mentioned in the actual interview, not in the
ad ...

Never saw that type of info in an ad for any kind of position, much less
 an IT one.
