I have been in my current position for 15 years, doing roughly the same thing every day. I have been cross trained on other jobs, at my insistence. However, my co-workers do not share my enthusiasm in learning other's jobs. There is one person who is trained as my back up, but she is currently on maternity leave so I can't really take a day off. My other co-workers complain that my job is too difficult and intense and do not want to learn it. My job does require more effort (except for the schedulers) and concentration, so I can sort of understand.
That being said, I am burned out beyond belief, and I am currently seeking another job (discreetly, of course). I have expanded my skill set by obtaining my certified professional coder (medical) certification, and that is the direction I want to go. There is NO opportunity to advance or grow in my current position, and no coder position. I know my boss is aware of this and really cannot offer anything to prevent me from taking another position elsewhere. I also feel that she dreads finding someone to replace me, but I do not feel guilty about that.
While I am job hunting, I continue to maintain my high standards in performing my job.
Is there anyone out there that has had a similar experience?
