For all we hear about how people won't have long-time employers like our parents did, how you need to focus on Me Inc. and embrace the freelance economy, most IT pros stay put if they can. More than 70% of IT pros have had only one or two employers the past 10 years--and that's a decade that includes two bone-jarring recessions. The median tenure at their current employer is eight years for staff and nine for managers. And asked to rank what's most important in their jobs, job and company stability is the second most often cited factor by staff (46%) and tied for third with managers (44%).
