Quit the job and dont waste your time sitting around for that month end paycheck, you need to be learning valuable skills everyday and be proactive, at your age you need to be garnering all kinds of usefull skillsets not sitting ard just collecting money and not learning anything that can further your career. In the long run, you will lose out to your more knowledge hungry peers.

Well, if you are still young, armed with the relevant paper qualifications and energy to start your career all over again, maybe you can consider getting a new job so as not to have any regrets in life.

However, if you have bills to pay and especially if you have any dependents, it is better to remain at your job and get the salary since it pays you well.

Just out of curiosity, what is your job scope and industry? Is there such a good job???

bad advice.

if you find a golden goose but a boring one, continue milking it.

learning new things is overrated. there's a phd who had to resort to driving a taxi (and i'm sure he didn't make 7k). mind you, he got his phd from Stanford and he was publishing new and useful stuff in his field. still, he was kicked out of his research institution due to politics.

it's just luck, bro.

if you luck out, be contented and don't complain that it's "boring".

Life is short. Just Quit!

No point working in a meaningless job with no growth - when you stop growing you die

I made a bold step 10 years ago to go into teaching after 15 years of corporate life

I had a good position with a great package but I was stuck and found my job becoming meaningless by the day. I asked myself what I really want, it is not money but a meaningful life. I took the plunge, had a pay cut and never looked back. I am happy today working with young people. My life is now very meaningful.

My package is in the range of 200 to 250 k per year. I am in my early 40s.

If you are purely looking at the package, yes indeed.

But if you are just passing day by day and not knowing what lies ahead, it is frustrating. This has been on going for 2 years.

I would love to have your job. Seriously. Care to share what is your job about and the level of management you are in?
