The reasons I have left for sofar:

  • no room for the career path I had in mind.
  • promises not kept
  • evaluations based more on feeling than anything else
  • getting bad evaluations based on criteria you can't control
  • better offer elsewhere.

To elaborate a bit

My first job was mainly programming Visual Foxpro and I didn't see much of a career path in visual Foxpro.

Promises not kept were training courses I followed with the promise that I would be getting assignments for which you needed the training courses. I didn't get any of those assignments.

At one employer we would be getting grades 1-5 officially telling us how well we did and on the grade the salary increase would be based. Reasons for bad evaluations included "your starting salary was to high", "other employee's used up the 4's I am allowed to give" and "you got an extra pay increase so I can't give you a 4 now".

I got an offer that increased my salary by 25%, with everything else looking great I couldn't resist.
