Help and advice, I would like some career help and advice.
(this is a cross-post from the programming thread since I figure it will get a different set of people looking at it)
Background: I'm programmer, been in industry 6 years.
I have several opportunities I need to choose between that basically run the gamut from continuing to do exactly what I've been doing, specializing further into the analysis side (still coding, but coding less), continuing to do the same *kinds* of things but in a different context, and moving away from the hardware (generalizing).
Do folks have experience with this sort of tradeoff in specialization versus limiting the number of jobs you are qualified for, and what are the ramifications you have experienced as you have made your decision in your career? For ease of argument, let's pretend they all pay the same.
