The world is talking about all the cool stuff meanwhile I work for a bank for a legacy system. My average finish time per task is 2 weeks, like add a button, a field and save it into the db. The good thing is my pay is higher than the avg. not sure it's good or bad. U use react? We have project in backbone and requirejs. Oh I heard u're on webpack? Whatever..

    Yeah, banks and insurance companies. Move very slowly - usually. Maybe do side projects with the new stuff to keep current.
    The bank will look good on your resume if you ever look elsewhere.

    Some mechanical engineers design literal rocket ships. Others design hand rails for factories. Rocket ships sound cooler, but the work life balance at Space X is shit, and the pay is meh.

    There's something to be said for a good income, and a stable life. Just gotta figure out what you want. If you, personally, are unhappy, make a change. But don't feel you need to mix it up just because that's what all the "cool kids" are doing.
