Has your company had consecutive quarters of layoffs? Is the stock plummeting? Raises been frozen? If the writing is on the wall, don’t ignore it.
There are certain indicators that paint a picture of a sinking ship, and you don’t want to be on it when it finally goes down. If your company has had several rounds of layoffs recently, if you haven’t received a raise in five years, and if all signs point to financial ruin and impending doom, then you’re probably justified in quitting to take something better. Hopefully you can find a company with a more positive long term outlook.
