After twelve years working as a software engineer at two different companies (in the UK), I am starting to feel that I no longer want to continue in this line of work. The main reason being the amount of unreasonable overtime that is expected, and the under-appreciation of the difficulties of writing good software by management/other departments leading to unrealistic deadlines being imposed or the expectation that the teams I have been in will work around the clock to solve issues (I'm not adverse to working overtime but there are limits).
This has also been brought into sharp focus now that I have recently become a father and have child-care duties outside of work. Most of the advice on this I see online points to related roles such as IT support or Ops, however I have no interest in these and feel they would have the same issues I have experienced as a software engineer.
Specifically I am looking for advice on a potential career that a software engineer would be well placed to move into (that isn't one of the roles mentioned above). Possibly something that takes advantages of related skills such as attention to detail, good problem solving abilities, analytical skills etc.
Has anyone been through this and successfully moved career? I'm quite open minded about possible suggestions, although Ideally the wages would be comparative to a software engineer (not sure how unrealistic that is though). Any advice is greatly appreciated.
