SigSegOwl199203dmy 2 cents: talk with your boss, if you think there should be something changed and nothing is done, then you pobably should look after a new job :) you are young and you gained experience at your current job, so it should be easy to find something new.
If you like your job, then you should stay ;)
devrocket1644203dIt's not weird to be tired after you develop all day. When I started working full time and stopped all side projects.
I find the motivation for something on the side will usually come in waves.
My only other advice would be to have a job before you leave. It's easier to find work when you're employed. You also have more leverage for negotiating salary.
gotjoshua1203dManu, you're basically a genius. You can work wherever you want on whatever you want. You better start working somewhere that you can put your heart into the work, before it starts eating you up inside.
I agree you should talk to your boss, but get a bit tough with him. Tell him you want a Sebatical for 6 months (no working from a distance) and he should try to make you an offer in 3 months that will make you want to come back. Tell him it will need to be a very compelling offer... Because you are seriously considering to move on...
Codex40418719202dNever feel bad for the company for taking things that you have a right to.
Ive got that issue as well, I dont like taking days off and today I heard vacation days have an expiration date. So in order to not waste 30 workdays of paid vacationdays Ive to take them begore July, but Im working as consult and the company Im consulting is (including me) three people. I feel bad for taking a complete month off when there are deadlines, but at the same time its my right to take it and if I wont then they will be gone.
So my mother told me today: "Never feel bad for the company for taking things that you have a right to."
monrichi860202dWell, i was in kind of a similar situation with the company that i worked with for 2 years.
I was getting paid fine for working all day on things that no longer added any value to my career. I was very unhappy.
I resigned last dec, but they kept asking me to stay and it got a bit emotional. I took January off to think about it. During jan i got so much time to learn new things and work on projects that I love. I finalised my resignation by the end of jan.
I don't have a job right now. But i have good savings to keep going. I am working on my own projects now.
It was a difficult decision but i couldn't be more happy that i left that job. It used to suck the energy out of me all day long.
So I will suggest, see if you are financially in a good place and then do what makes you happy and do not care for anything else.
