  1. IT career "golden cage"

    I saw a good discussion about IT contractor jobs a few threads ago and would like to seek forum’s advice on my situation too. I work as IT manager with some specialised domain knowledge for a relatively small non-IT company in Berlin and somehow found myself in a golden cage that is difficult to leave. I don’t enjoy projects I work on any more, and see no further professional growth or career development opportunities at this company. Having said that, the conditions I managed to achieve are quite generous (€ >100k+ salary, flexible working hours, unlimited home office), the contract is permanent and somehow in the last 12 months I was not able to get any offers from other companies even nearly matching that. What would you do in such situation? Keep on jobhunting? Or just stay put and perhaps try starting a small but interesting & challenging business as a side gig? Any advice is much appreciated!
