    If you are told there is NO wiggle room, and it's a take-it-or-leave-it type situation. I was told that as well. You can try to negotiate benefits, such as more time off, OR request an off-cycle salary increase after 3 - 6 months.

    When you become so cynical that you even can't stand your thoughts/actions about your job. If you can't physically do the job/work. Do you have other obligations that make your job more of a nuisance? Then maybe you should step down. No one can afford to retire because inflation has hit every aspect of existence except employee wages. YES - everyone should have the option to retire when they feel they want to. 20 years at a job should be enough.

    Depends on your work place. Intention and perception are the only two pieces that matter when making this decision. If the activity is done with positive work appropriate intent, and people perceive it positively. All good. If its perceived poorly, its not professional. Simple as that. Perception is everything.

    Less then 3 years, but every 3 years is a bad trend as well. A career with non-consecutive 3 year engagements, along with some 5 plus engagements is acceptable. Most of the time in IT changing jobs is the only way to receive competitive compensation.

    Increased pay (in the short term). After 3 or more annual job-hoppings you will be viewed as a non-team player/ person with issues. Manager knows you will leave with the smallest challenge—so why waste time hiring you.

    I wouldn’t and I’d tell the friend why. My friends know this about me. I wouldn’t expect someone to jeopardize their employment for my bad reputation (if I were unreliable), and I wouldn’t jeopardize mine, friend or otherwise. I have refused writing letters of recommendation based on these things.

    You need to have a certain amount of people skills, and that includes networking with others. Being able to work with other people, make genuine connections with your team, and having a willingness to learn ALL THE TIME make the biggest impact on how well you succeed.

    You shouldn't have to, however in many work cultures you must. In some not going means you might be looking at getting booted especially if your not one just out of college.
