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.

Making about 110K TC in industry. Been thinking about getting an MBA in 1-2 years, but not sure if it’s worth it since I’d likely exit back into strategy, which is what I’m currently doing. I think my TC by the time I finish B-School would maybe have a 20K - 30K differential depending on bonus compensation. My parents are pushing me to get one as they’ll pay for it, but I’m not sure if it’s worth it. Are there any B-School grads with thoughts on the value given my situation?
