Yeah, I've made almost the same money for the last 10 years. People keep giving me the opportunity for growth speech, but its always growth in ways that have nothing to do with my career. Taking me away from the technical part of my job and pushing me towards management. There's a part of me that is just wanting to take the risk and open my own business, but I don't have the potential human resources to make that happen in the town I'm in. I KNOW that's even more management, and administration than I'd want to field for an employer, but its different when it's your thing.
This mindset is incredibly useless. "Hey, let's take this person that's good at this, and make them learn something else to give them more money". Especially in application development, that's just stupid. I get into these policy arguments all the time "well, a team lead shouldn't be coding, they should be interfacing with the client". No, they should be freaking coding! It's what they're good at!
