Until I stop learning and moving up. Usually 2-3 years. That being said, I’ve seen people who have genuinely made the right call leaving at 1 year or staying past 5. As long as you’re making connections, moving up and learning new things it doesn’t hurt to stay so long as the comp and incentives are at market.

Always be planning your next move. You might not be looking, but it it helps to make sure you're working on the right things for the next move. Typically, I start looking around 3 years.

2 years

3 months. That's when I start looking at next moves and planning. But the move itself will be 2 years.

Depends on growth, it can 5 months or 5 years

Growth in what realm? Do you mean personal growth, as in knowledge being gained. Or, company growth, as in how quickly the company is growing.

2-3 years but it's really just about my growth. If I'm getting promoted and looks like I still will I might stay for much longer.

5 is usually max, 1 is min.

As far as looking up, I think that’s always going to happen. Doesn’t hurt to keep your ears perked to see what’s still out there. As far as moving, I guess when you feel like your priorities change/evolve

If I add the caveat of say no increase in Salary then what is the time frame you might consider.

1 year, you usually can tell if you can grow. Especially in SaaS

I’m always planning and looking but making an actual move (promotion, significant change, etc.) every 2-3 years.
