Hi fishes, I have been on a project since 1 year right out of college. Scatter plot and reviews from my project manager are good and I feel I can continue with this project for a year more. But there is very limited learning (almost stagnant) which is project specific and WLB is also very good. So should I leave this project and search for a different one. Or do I need to use this time to upskill for a developer related role. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
