At my current job, I've been here for over 2 years, and was expecting a merit increase, because I'd heard this company likes to reward their employees. Well that changed, and my increase was for less than inflation, in addition to me being given 2.5 to 3 times more work for the rest of the year. It was also fairly plainly stated that if I wanted to make more money, I'd need to move and switch to a different part of the company, requiring me to learn new skills. Meaning that I effectively would be needing a new job. Not everybody has a job like this, but I'm far from the only guy with this kinda personal experience.

Does your company do a good job of retaining employees? I know that you've mentioned your troublesome employee many times in the Rant Thread, but how about everybody else? Do people tend to stay for a long time? On my first day at my current place, the median number of years people had been working here was 10 or more. But my company has cheaped out and has been slowly losing more and more of their veterans. Millennials DO watch this stuff, we're not all dog-crazed wandering travel junkies.
That sucks.

I will say that I know I am lucky having been able to be working for a very good company where bonus and merit compares very favorably. I have been with the company since I graduated in 2009 and my total comp is up over 300% and there is still significant runway to increase without selling out work life balance.

I entered the workforce in 2009 with an hourly rate - job. Managed to turn that into a salaried position. Stayed there almost two full years before jumping to a similar position with another system for a 40% pay increase. Stayed there almost two years and jumped to consulting for stupid money but stupid travel. Found a consulting position with minimal travel that ultimately turned into my current position which has me sitting at ~ 200% of my original salary.

Now looking to shift positions within the same company and I'm running myself into the ground preparing for the technical interview.

My current company values their employees but expects high performance. They look for high performers to make part of their ongoing operations.

Just a message to the discouraged or under-appreciated among us: there are good employers out there. Try to always be professional, even when heading for the exit and continually work to develop yourself.
