Does changing job often like every two years or so affects your career in future/long term?

Question arises in front of employers who care about reputation more than Business and work ethics. I have seen people of making it a habit to not stay at any organisation for more than 2-3 years.


At a senior level, yes. Junior levels - absolutely not.


It depends on what you're position is. If you are entering to mid-career, it makes sense but as a director, VP, etc., it's better to have longevity in those roles.


Not nearly as much as it used to, because I think it's a generational thing. Millennials don't tend to stay at a job for a long time before moving on. That being said, I think it's important to have a reason behind your job hopping. For instance, if you change companies every couple of years, it should be for growth or another obvious opportunity that you can justify in an interview. Also, the higher your position, the greater the impact will be.


I don't think it matters as much anymore, as long as you can explain why. I think it has become a lot more common (especially to get a salary hike) so people understand.

Since we are now WFH, there’s no need for smokers to step outside to take smoke breaks. And with WFH, there are back-to-back conference calls, so the though is that with video calls it’s okay for them to smoke during the calls. I could get behind that I think. Thoughts?

EY folks please help me. I am confused. For maternity leave in the state of CA: We have disability leave, EY parental leave, and optional CA paid family leave. Which one comes first? Say I want to....


I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!


16w pregnant w/ 2nd child and have an interview for a job I want. When should I tell the potential employer? I know it’s illegal to discriminate...but also want to be strategic. Any advice?

To those of you that actually enjoyed the job and didn't mind the lifestyle, why did you quit? I'm getting slightly pissed at the leadership. But maybe it's just this project.
