tomorrow is my 8-year anniversary at my current job. I'm of mixed emotions about that... the people are great to work with and we're doing really important work and I really believe in our mission (and I do have to be honest I get paid quite reasonably and i get six weeks of vacation and a pension plan and I am fully aware of how well-compensated i am).
But it's been 8 years, and while I'm always doing new things and new work and new projects, I wonder if I'm letting 'being safe' employment-wise and financially hold me back from seeking new challenges that might advance my career quicker.
But quicker towards what? Where?
I don't know the answers to that.
But yes. Eight years.
