"Leave your job as soon as possible for a higher paying position - it's the best way to get a raise in this industry, and you've got to build out your resume"
I always hear this being told & I disagree that "It's the best way to get a raise" because isn't the real best way to get a raise is through hard work & dedication. In my first software development job after being there for 2 years during my performance review I asked for a 30% raise because I knew that I had grown in Skills & I based on market rate I was underpaid. The company gave me what I asked for with no haggling. :-)
So I agree with you that some things are worth staying for. :-)
