However the pay is stagnant. The company doesnít give yearly increment and bonus is low.
I am unsure whether to seek better opportunities, and risk sacrificing WLB.
If I donít look out now, I may be stuck with this company since I am already 40 years old.

So pay vs WLB, what do you advise? Thanks.
It's a little hard to say for sure as it depends on your commitments. For example, a sole breadwinner with elderly parents to provide and care for would probably prioritise higher pay rather than WLB.

For me, I look for jobs with regular office hours, and don't mind occasionally attending night calls. That's my personal tolerance.
