Number 1: Compensation can no longer support your life needs. Number 2: You're not enjoying your job. And number 3: Need a better opportunity.

There can be many reasons to quit the job. I think sometimes the overtime work can be one of these reasons. When people get married and especially have their own children, then it will be bad if we have to do overtime job everyday for a long time. I love China

Very true I have been working retail for about 10 years now. When I got out of high school and found a job I worked a lot of overtime. I would come in on my days off and stay later when they needed me. After I had a baby it all changed. I didn't want to work overtime at all. Every time they would ask me to stay I would say no. I wanted the extra pay but I wanted to be with my family more. Some of the managers that were not in my situation could never understand that.

1. Boss. 2. Boss. 3. Boss Okay okay. I am okay with salary and benefits. I am okay with my work. Just that I have issues with a specific boss who is not my direct boss but someone I always have to deal with because his tasks and my tasks are connected.

I think your number one is almost similar to numbr 3.. but of course when we talk about opportunity we think of career growth.. most companies though when have a clear path for employees career to grow.. they do have a corresponding compensation with it, right? =) I guess part of the reasons why one would leave a job aside from number two you have stated is that they have people in the company that have become a burden, or have stressed them out already. Sometimes, the stress is just not worth anymore...

If you have a better option waiting for you out there, then those are practical reasons why you should get on with a new job. However, long tenure is a better way to ensure your future with all the good benefits one could have as a loyal employee. So, to achieve tenure and stability, do much research on the new company and new role and make sure it is the company you intend to stay with for as long as you want to be employed. Its not good to be jumping from one ship to another --- you might slip, fall and drown.

Exactly, they are the reasons why one should quit his job already. But for me, number 3 seems not that necessary anymore, if your current job can already more than sustain your living and that you are enjoying your job already. And for me compensation comes second , when i am truly happy at my workplace already, the environment and my co-employees and with my boss.

This are the best reason to quit jobs, but the question is: does the companies know about this reasons. But whatever it is, be happy & be strong.

You are right about those three reason why to quit your job. For me, I tried to quit a job twice not because of the compensation. First, about the people around that keeps on making gossips on me, however, I was adviced by my parents not to quit instantly. According to them, this happens in every organization. Second, I quit my job to focus on my review for the board exam for better opportunity. It was a right decision because I passed the board exam. Right now, I was planning to search for another job not because of compensation but again because of the people around having crab mentality. Those that tries to pull you down whenever you are trying to make a step upwards.

i agree with your reasons. most peaple quit their job for reason number 1 but when they talk to their supervisor about their resignation they will tell them its reason number 3. reason number 2 is mostly a burn-out feeling from work which can be resolve by some self-time or vacation.

I agree with you those can be major reasons why an employee quits their job. But if in case I will be quitting my job, I would consider trying to find another opportunity first and make sure I will have another job to look forward to once I resign. Given the situation of our economy today, it is hard to find jobs that we do like these days.

Yes, these together are enough for me too to quit a job, they say everything. Particularly 1 and 2, because when I can make enough for a living and enjoy my job I don't think about quitting. I try to stay as long as possible, but there is a point when it's time for a change.
