What is your longest stay in a company?

If I have a post regarding the longest vacancy without work then now my question is what is your longest stay in a company? What made you decide to stay or resign in company? Are you satisfied in your longest stay in a company? Why or why not? In my own experience usually less than a year because when I was working in animation studio I was not satisfied with the work pace and low salary anymore. Aside from that we need to transfer into another animation studio every time there is end season of the show. While when I was working as freelance in magazine publishing it just so happened that the editor in chief was missing in action so it was not my fault already.

The longest stay I had is 3 years. I resigned because I went back to Uni and I need full time. What I like about my job is that not so stressing and I love the people I work with we are like family. Though salary is a bit low I am still happy. And I learned and grow as a person thats what I like.

I already rendered more than 8 years in my present company. The company is great, the benefits are competitive, great team that I even found friends for life here, like the culture and the the chance to interact with different teams. The shortest was at 4 months for a consultancy job.

My longest stay in a company was only 6 months. I didn't want to leave, but I moved so I didn't have a choice. Shortly after that I became a stay at home mom. I just recently returned to the workforce after 15 years, so we shall see how long I am able to stay at my current job. Happy mylotting!

hi! The longest I've stayed with a company is 4 years and still counting! Actually, I hate my job in some aspects but not all of it. It's my coworkers really that are annoying. so I'm thinking of quitting and find another one. Then there's the news I'd be transferred to another department so I'll be away from "those people", so I'll give it a try and learn to love my job in that department. By the way, I'll start there by the end of June.

I am in my current position for 7 years already and it so happens to be the longest stay up to now. There is only 1 reason that put my in this position for this long: lazy. I am simply too lazy to head for another job and every time when things turn so bad that I want to leave, my boss will do something to relieve my bad feelings.

3 years and still going strong..good company, well, quite good pay and most important I'm working with great individuals. There never pass a day that we never laugh though we are at work. Maybe, I'll stay here for another year or two before i start my own company. And hope i can build a company with the same atmosphere as my present company.

Longest job I've ever had: 7.5 years. The only job I've had that's lasted more than 12-18 months was working as an IT guy (with various titles and roles) for the biggest networking company in the world. Based in the Paris office, had stupidly long hours but it was great fun with a great bunch of people. I left because my mum became ill and because, after 9/11, the company turned into "just another great big company" and stopped being cool and fun. Shame, really. Was an absolutely brilliant job, learned lots, earned lots, felt totally knackered for about 3 months after I stopped (close to burning out, it seems)!! Shortest job I've ever had: one night. It was a fast food place - horrible work, horrible pay and I busted both wheels on my bike on the way home because some idiot had left a brick in road. Cost me more in repairs than I'd earned working 'til 3 a.m., so I quit immediately.
