Band 5 At Bank of America looking to make the jump into tech.

I have 6 years of experience mostly working in financial companies on the business/reporting/analytics side. I have been with the bank for a little over 2 years and I am looking to make the jump into tech. I work in the cyber security/ IAM space in a semi functional, but also technical role.

Reasons for looking for new opprotunities are below market conpensation, no upward trajextory path to management, lots of office politics and poor management, lack of interesting work/projects. Yes, I could apply internally, but the low compensaiton for my position (around 100k) will remain the same if I switch teams next year. Extra info: I was recently promoted to Band 5 with no significant raise and the bank has a policy that prohibits internal job transfers from getting a raise when moving into a new team.

Any recommendations or leads for tech companies that have a growing cyber security group?

Bank of America has great benefits, but I am not gaining new skills and fear that I will not be employable if I stay on my team much longer.
