"Fulfilling work, but little career progression."
Need to decide whether to take a technical progression route or managerial. My experience is that most software engineers, like myself, do not enjoy man-management, but often end up doing so because it is likely to be the only available route to career progression. If management is not your thing, then find an organisation to work for who are more modern in their approach and include technically based career routes.
