I have friends who are miserable at their jobs and complain constantly, but never leave. They are so deathly afraid of change and ‘appearing unstable’ that they stay at the same company, where they are treated horribly and underpaid. Gone are the days when you have to stay somewhere until retirement. I say move around and find what you really want and get more money in the process. If you’re lucky enough to find a dream job, stay. But don’t rely on companies to keep you during troubled times. They’ll get rid of you in a second, with no remorse.
