Re: Retaining Talent
@fayl:

This is also one other issue. If you are a person that prefres holding on wit company then finding such match is the first and foremost step. Then plan your path carefully and reaching goal will help in long term as long as the company remains long term.

Re: Retaining Talent
@faryl:

Now i notice completely opposite trend. Employees are not in a demanding state. Especially if you are looking for a reasonable company then you have to be patient enough to go through the process till you find a right fit.

Re: Retaining Talent
I think it happened during the first bubble & then after it burst. For a while it seemed like there was a shortage of talent so companies kept enticing employees to jump ship & work for them. And then once it burst, everyone understood the shorter time worked since it wasn't employees' faults for working at startups that didn't last.

Re: Retaining Talent
The challenge is finding the companies that will be around long enough to let you be able to reach those heights. It doesn't matter how talented or loyal an employee is if they keep working for companies that fail (or get bought out).

That's good to know. That speaks volume that someone is really happy with the current job / role doing what they really like. That sense of satisfaction is very important. That surely will become a driving factor.

Re: Retaining Talent
@faryl I remember when the shift began. Almost suddenly, it was ok to have multiple companies on a resume (at least in tech).

Re: Retaining Talent
It used to be that having a bunch of companies on your resume would result in it being sent straight to the trashbin

 

@faryl:


This still is the case even today. A resume may not be preferred if there are multiple job chnages at frequent intervals.

Re: Retaining Talent
 It is crazy that anyone stays with it longer than 7 years (on average).


I am in IT and I have experience working for start up companies. In my opinion one's ability to stay longer with start up companies depend on bunch of factors  -  the stage of your career at the time, affordability in terms of Job steability, readiness to adapt crazy schedules etc. No start up company gives you job steability or structure. You may have to wear may hats at times and be ready to spend extra hours. If you have flexibility to be around, there is a chance for one to reach good hights in the same start up company. I have seen some people doing that.
