My Chief Friends In our life times, we do quit our jobs and seek opportunities with other organisations...so then whe do you say I QUIT from this job...then it is due to many reasons...but from my experience i could make out some of them here. Then if you experienced or heard from others, then When do you say I QUIT, its because of Less salary Politics in office Long working hours Harassed by seniors Boss always snaps at you No personal life left Unhappy with your appraisal Even you can list one or many from the above listings in order.... Happy mylotting

The IDEAL scenario to quit a job is when instead of living to9 work you are working just to live! But it's not that easy unfortunately to just walk away from a job the second you start to feel this way. For me personally I will consider seeking other employment when I start to feel that I am undervalued and stagnant in my role. There is nothing worse than getting as far as you possibly can in a job and then having nowhere left to go!

I understand the situation, there are occasions that we can no tolerate the way the management runs things. There are also cases when the management is great but the salary is low. Sometimes what can be annoying are the politics within. Whatever it may be, I cannot tolerate a low salary as long as the management is great. All the rest, I think I cannot accept.

Well, over all, there are many reasons why someone might quit a job. But in today's economy there are more that are hanging onto a job even if they do not like it all because there is nothing better left too choose from for sure. But I know I have quit jobs before due to the way I was being Treated, and because of the hrs. expected to work, for Health reasons, and for moving to somewhere else as well. Personally though I feel when you move on from a job, it is always best to have a Good back up plan so in a month or two you do not end up feeling as a loser as well.

Don't quit for any of these reasons: Less salary (is it the salary you agreed to work for) Politics in office (there are politics whereever you go) (The grass is not greener somewhere else unless it's your own company, and then you're probably be the talk of politics in your own company) Long working hours (see response to "no personal life left") Harassed by seniors (see response to "boss always snaps at you") Boss always snaps at you (does he only do it to you or is he like that with everyone in the office? If just you, then you may be doing something incorrectly that needs correcting. If everyone, then that is simply the way your boss is, and it's a good way to get a bit of thick skin) No personal life left (work will always take up a major part of your life) Unhappy with your appraisal (did you deserve it, honestly, did your supervisor give you that grade with valid reasons or practical examples on how to improve.) Don't ever quit without a exit plan. At least 12-18 months, wait in today's economy, at least 24-36 months worth of savings in a bank somewhere. That way if it takes you a while to find a job, then you won't be suffering in the process.

I have always quit when I found dishonesty in my "superiors" and sometimes because of moving from one place to another. Once I quit because a good boss was fired and someone far less qualified than me was put in her job. Once I quit because I had a lot of vacation leave untaken and it was use it or lose it but the company would not approve any days off even after 2 12/2 years, so I quit to get the paid vacation that had been promised.
