If you ever let anyone know that you are planning to leave your job the company will be really mean to you

Not necessarily true. You can tell your boss that you really want to stay but XYZ is preventing you from staying. This is more negotiation skills than anything

I'll add to your list too!!

  • Companies that have on site catering and gyming, do it so that you can never leave the office and work longer hours.
  • Companies do not consider your personal a growth as part of their success. Companies exist solely to make profit. They'll grow you for ROI and tax benefits, not necessarily because they care.

I think I understand your point, and yes! negotiation skills are vital to improving any professional career. However, it is a dangerous game. Some years ago, I had that mindset that I was just doing negotiation but after ending unemployed for saying that kind of comment I changed my mind. And it is really hard when you have bills to pay to end up unemployed out of nowhere, it is a situation where you find that you need to do everything to avoid that to happen again.

BTW, I agree with everything else.
