Workers who stay with a company longer than two years are said to get paid 50% less.
There are a number of reasons given for job hopping being a good thing, but this one made me sit up and pay attention.
It makes sense if you think about it. Annual raises aren’t much for most employees. To get a really significant bump in pay requires either a promotion, or a new position. Promotions don’t come along very often without going somewhere new either, so it is likely that employees who simply stay and take their annual performance increases, are getting significantly less compared to those willing to leave for something new.
It’s certainly something to think about. As is the rest of the article.
