Case for staying with a company for a while

Saw on Twitter: "People optimize for small money by jumping between companies, especially on E5 level below. Big money starts at E6+. To get there you need to gather knowledge - usually by staying for a prolonged amount of time in a domain/team."

Not always a good idea to hop to another company for a promo or a raise. People don’t consider that you have to start from scratch and you lose all the context you’ve built up over time.

This is true. Depending on the size of the team and the projects you get to work on, it’s probably best to stay for at least a year or two to see things to completion. Not to mention the connections. If you happen to have a great team environment, I wouldn’t trade that for a small pay bump. No way.
