You have been working for the same company for a few years and your work has become redundant. I have spoken to many people who have five years of experience on their resume, but what they really have is one year of experience repeated five times. If you have hit a plateau and you no longer are learning from repetition, or if the challenges of the role are few and far between, it is time to move on.
