What Causes Frustration Among Software Engineers?

I see that most of my friends who're working in the IT/Software industry are frustrated with their jobs. 99% of them are 'sticking' to the job because they've EMIs & others are just hanging on because they've nothing else to do. There are *very few* engineers who're in the job because they love it. Just wondering what causes frustration among the software engineers -
  • Is it high stress level?
  • Is it monotonous work?
  • High expectations from society?
  • Bad bosses & mangers?
  • High competition for promotions and salary hikes?
Or other reasons. What's your take?
