People who currently have a job, how long will you stay with your employer once the economy turns around?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14311 points ) October 25th, 2012

Are you at your job, rather than another, because you think you have a pleasant work environment, or because it is your only option?

I love where I work. The only reason I would leave where I’m at now would be if a better opportunity for my overall career came up that my current employer couldn’t match. As long as my current employer can continue to give me opportunity to grow in my nursing career, I’ll be staying with them.

I like my job, and I have been where I am for a long time. I have no reason to move on.

I just started this gig in July. I love what I do, love the place, good coworkers, and it’s the best salary I’ve had thus far. Furthermore, they’re paying for my graduate degree.

Needless to say, I’m in no big hurry to go anywhere.

If the economy turning around meant that Fluther would be more profitable again, I’d stay here forever. No lie. I recently started doing freelance editing, too, and I love it. I could see myself doing that forever, too.

I’m out as soon as my next offer rolls in. I’ve been looking for a while to get out of where I work, but it’s tough out there, especially in my line of work.

I’ve been at my job for over 8 years, and it is a very good work environment for me. However, changes are in progress, and one of the Doctors I work with is nearing retirement age… I’m not sure what I’ll do when he retires. I always swore I would never work in a Doctor’s office, because most surgeons are arrogant pricks. I am very fortunate to work with two of the most mellow Docs I’ve ever known. They know that my clinical skills are excellent and that my patients are happy with my services, so they don’t nit-pick or micro-manage me.

The real downside to my job is the commute: 44 miles each way. My fiancĂ© has been at his job over 18 years, and he works nearly 60 miles away from our home in the opposite direction. We tried to find a home that was about halfway between our offices. His car is an ‘11 VW Diesel, so it’s fairly efficient. Once we pay that off, we’ll get another more efficient car to replace mine – which is about to turn 100,000 miles in a week or two.

I have been there for 35 years. Once the housing market turns enough to allow me to sell mine, I will retire.

I am self-employed. The economy is already turning around. I have had a lot more business this year.

Naw. I got a sweet gig.

I created my own job. I love it, and no it’s not making me rich, yet! But it makes me happy.

I feel grateful that during the economic downturn I wasn’t laid off (though my husband was, twice)—but it’s not like I would be looking to leave even if times were booming and I was offered more money elsewhere. I’m at my job because I love it..and I have no desire to leave.

I like my job and I intend to stay until I retire. Once the economy is fully recovered I’d like to move back into sales; I earned a ton doing that before the recession started to hit. But I’d stay with the same company, just move back to the sales department.
