Stay: A near-collapse of the global economy can do funny things to even the most purpose-driven organization. Take this as your cue to step up to the plate. Affecting change and leading by example aren't easy, but then again, neither is changing jobs during these times. Remember, it’s always darkest before dawn.
Leave: It is said that “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” It's a mistake to try to get your workplace back on track when the course the organization is on doesn’t carry you where you and your career need to go. If need be, talk the talk, but when the first opportunity presents itself, walk the walk--away--and don’t turn back!
