I've been on my current job for over 14 years. Admittedly the employer
has changed and my work assignments have changed, but I never thought
I'd stay this long. (And I have a 40 mile each way commute.)
It's a gov't contract with many different projects and a diversity of
technical activities. I lost my access to the local iSeries when I
switched projects two years ago so I no longer get to play or try the
latest. Having worked on the platform since 1980 I miss using my
considerable expertise.
However change is good and retirement is less than five years away. It's
unlikely I'll return to the 400, but if something came up closer to
home, part time, who knows.

RE: Longevity (was: Belated Congratulations Trevor !) (Doug Hart)

This post in MIDRANGE-L got me to thinking ... anyone know what the
average
tenure of a technology worker (System i or other) is these days?

I'm just a few days shy of 10 years at my current job ... longest I've
ever
been at a single company. Before I came here (MKS) I didn't stay more
than
3 years at any one company. I kind of always was in 'looking for a new
job'
mode.

Any thoughts?
