Default Leaving for ATC?

I'm currently an F/O at a regional airline thinking about leaving the career in pursuit of a much more secure and better paying job at a lvl 12 ARTCC. I applied OTS (PUBNAT 8) a couple years ago, tested, selected, interviewed and I'm now finally recommended. Still probably have another year to go before I'm offered a class in OKC after backgrounds, medical and whatnot.

Just wondering who else out there is leaving or has left commercial flying for an ATC job.

If you've already left, what has your experience been like in your new career?

I figure if I leave flying the door is always open to come back, especially with this so called pilot shortage on the horizon.
