In the past, there was something called a pension, increasing vacation benefits, etc. The idea being that the longer you stayed in a company, the more tribal knowledge you had. It was considered valuable. My dad spent his entire engineering career with IBM (before they went to the dark side).

I've worked for 11 companies with the last 3 as my own corporation. Maybe I missed it, but most of this article re-hashes ancient stuff. My first job change happened after 1 year. I would have never started looking except for the fact that my manager (who was a really great guy) had this phrase, "engineers are a dime a dozen." - In retrospect, it was self deprecating humor, but I took it seriously. Second, when I got my offer from Hughes Aircraft - the money was insane.

And there is your nugget - it's almost always about the money, especially if you have a family. I've always wondered why companies pass out annual raises of 4% when their top developers can walk across the street for 25%. Me thinks HR knows something about the human condition.

Most of my job changes were not directly tied to looking for a raise. The money came with it.
