There's a certain part of me that doesn't want to poke the bear. The compensation and benefits smooth over most of the dysfunctional parts of the job. The pay is on the lower side of competitive, but the benefits are pretty great. On the other hand, I didn't become a lawyer to run diversity initiatives or code up intranet pages or halfass my job. I want to work somewhere that will give me the resources necessary to become good at my profession.
Is it worth seriously considering a change at this point, or am I likely to find that the grass is pretty green on this side of the fence? Going back to a firm is not really on my radar, but my (admittedly limited) experience in other in-house legal departments says that there are less dysfunctional companies out there with competitive hours/comp/etc.

My view on things is that even if your job is going well, you should always be on the lookout for better opportunities, especially in-house since the opportunities pop up less frequently. I (mostly) like my current in-house position but I have looked around and interviewed a bit myself.

I think jhett has the right of it here - checking the market isn't poking the proverbial bear.
Only one question on my side - is there anyone in your department who you might be able to sit down with and ask for better and stronger work, or more responsibility?
