Does your company have a Performance Evaluation process?

Yes, and we shall not speak of it again. :)

How does your supervisor respond to your desire for growth and new challenges? Is he/she helping you formulate a plan to help you develop skills for promotion?

Well, he's helping me develop a plan for lots of improvements that can be made in my department. All of which I'll work on for as long as I am here, but really - they are for the company and the department, not for my career development. I'm not saying I won't learn anything doing them, but that would be peripheral to my career goals at best. The root problem is that I don't want to be *in* my department anymore.

This office has 17 employees. There isn't any opportunity for promotion here. There isn't even a chance for a lateral career move. I could transfer to a different US-based office, but I don't want to move. Thus the job search.
