Absolutely 100% at the very least get your resume out there.
I walked away from my last job, without having another one (I AM NOT RECCOMENDING YOU DO THIS BY THE WAY) becasue even though the pay was decent, working 60 hour weeks as an non-exempt employee kind of had its perks, at the end of the day it was in no way shape or form helping me in the long run, I was very frustrated with management, 24 years old, and had a 3 month old little girl I needed to provide for. I felt like at that point it was nut up or shut up time. Find a career, where I can start gaining experience that actually has something to do with my degree, or just keep my job doing something that has nothing to do with my degree. It took 3 months, but I finally found a job where I can at least gain experience in a field that would help me in the long run. It seems like you have been there long enough and you have learned about all they are going to let you/can teach you.
Do you still live with your parents? If so get the hell out of there now. Not saying rely on them, but I promise you'd rather not have a morgage or rent when your current company pisses you off even more, you want to walk away, but you know you wont be able to pay the bills so you have to stay and you know it and they know it.
If I wasnt getting married in a month and didnt have a 2 1/2 year old I'd walk away form my current job as well. At this point they are hiring new people for the same job I do but at a higher rate than they are will to pay me. I have been here 2 years and they offered a guy $5,000 a year more and he has less experience than I do. Other than his current 18 months exp he doesnt have any other exp in this field.
Apply, apply, apply and good luck to you
