Interesting work is a broad term, but for me personally it has been related to the type of challenges I find interesting i.e. tackling growth and scale problems vs cost optimisation. Have had a lot of peers exit to roles they aren't super excited about, but have cited wlb + salary, which I do want, but also couldn't see myself going to work on say reg+compliance problems everyday.
