personally, for me, life and job satisfaction is above promotions. 3 years of doing what I don't like, without any passion or interest, and getting skills that will not matter (and this is not a good thing) isn't good, neither for me, nor for my career.
when I pondered on these questions a couple of years ago, I decided that it matters, and changed my job as soon as possible. Life is too short.
