I know this question may be a bit vague as it depends on a persons personal qualities and what they want to do but as you guys are most knowledgeable i thought i would still ask.
I am currently working as a Web Developer, mostly PHP, some ASP.NET C#. I have literally just left this position and will be taking up a Software Engineer role starting next week.
My question being, is there more opportunities in terms of progression, demand and salary in Software Engineering as oppose to Web Development?
What sorts of averages would you expect a SE to be on once they have a few years experience under their belt?
Is SE a good career path to take?
The reason i ask is because as i have been working as a Web Developer for nearly 2 years i have gained immense amounts of experience but i have become very agitated and bored by doing the same thing over and over when it comes to CSS then coding etc.. I figured with SE i would be working on different types of an application or system etc so the work is more varied?
Anyway, again i would really appreciate some advice?
I just want to know i am heading in the right direction..
