-your mid-30s to mid-40s is the most valuable time of your working career, because it's the time where u earn peak salary

-EVEN if u found a job after resigning from your current job, is there any guarantee that it won't be as stressful as your current job?

-your salary is very commendable. u could just build a FIRE (financially independent retire early) portfolio if u know what that is

all the pte sector coys i've been to, i've not seen a coy that has more than 1 to 2 employees who are 50yo or older. that shows u how prevalent ageism and age discrimination is when it comes to finding a job in SG.
if there is a chance to leave, cannot do this in long run so it is matter of if there is a need to take some pay cut, i may consider.

What job do they do at Govtech when they moved over?

i am the same poster from #4. the thing is most banks have sh1tty work-life-balance.

u need to figure out what's the lowest salary u are willing to accept and if your current skillset and soft skills can be transferred and applicable to your new employer.

If you are not 40 yet, and single, sounds like you still have some good years and can take some risks to seek new jobs.

Don't let fear cause you to bury your head in something you dread.. you've still got so many years ahead.

my friends working in CPF board is getting a wonderful pay and bonuses. and the hours are wonderful as there's not that heavy a job load.

why not seek out a few head hunters to match you and let you know your market value?
