Changes in the industry
It hasn't changed in the way people work but lot of innovation has happened and the way the world look at Software testing has changed drastically. Now-a-days clients feel that testing is one of the major part of Software Development life cycle.
A Fine Balance:
In software, every day is a big challenge and most of the time, the work pressure increases intermitently. I usually take out time for small breaks in between long working hours and try to have coffee with colleagues with some interesting and funny discussions so that I can feel relaxed.

Most Important Lessons
During my 4.5 yrs of experience, I have learnt many lessons,some of them are Learn how to talk with people when you dont have any topic, Don't take decisions without thinking and without proper consultation, respect your managers and Never hesitate to raise defects while testing :)
Current and Previous Responsibilities
Now I am more experienced so more responsiblities :). Previously I was not facing the client so often and was not in a position to manage a project in absence of manager. Now I am able to handle these efficiently.
