Ima4nic8or: That is just farking sad and pathetic. How the fark do the job hoppers expect to ever earn a decent pension? Not to mention that it generally takes about 5 years to become really proficient at a job. Its no wonder so many of the folks around me don't know what the hell they are doing. I was with the first company that I started working with for 17 years and have been at my current employer for 11 years and am planning to retire from it in another 19 years.Unless they mean that folks change job within the same company every 4.5 years. I suppose that makes more sense. Then you can ignore everything I just said.Pension? What the hell is a pension?
sycraft: Depends on what they mean by same job. I've been working for the same employer for 10 years, but in that time I've been promoted twice. Personally, I don't see why changing jobs is supposed to be such a good thing. If you have a job you like, and that you're good at, why not keep it? This idea that we should always be off chasing "the next big thing" seems silly. In fact, I think it can be rather unhealthy when you get people who are just looking for the next higher salary number, who will leave something that works well for them just in an attempt to get more money that they don't actually need.If you like your job, and it pays for all your needs, then I don't see any reason to go chasing a new one.
