Shouldn't you know the pay before you take the job

Tell the old boss that you have potential to make double the money. If he doesnt understand that then you didnt want to work for him anyway.

I think doing it once is fine, definitely frowned upon any more than that.

Doubling from 20k to 40k...ehhh.

Doubling 50k to 100k...I think your average person would understand.

pretty sure if you're only making 20k then 40k seems like a million bucks

Screw loyalty in the workplace. Always chase the money

I don't consider it an issue unless you have a tendency to stay at a job for 1 to 1.5 years at most. I know one of my family members switches jobs very often because that is the only way he can get a pay raise. His ability to change jobs as often as he does has not stopped him from finding employment, although I wouldn't doubt that it has hurt his chances at better jobs than what he can get.

I disagree. I find there are much more important things to forming a career than 'chasing money' at every opportunity.

The first 5 years out of school, development and exposure to the right opportunities is more important to me than the highest salary. Of course, it is ideal if it all three align.

I am slightly old school on this topic. I generally think that 2 years is the minimum otherwise you start creating red flags. This depends on the industry/job skill, naturally.

I agree on the loyalty piece...but the reasons for leaving can vary.

It used to be that you were rewarded for loyalty and hard work. I don't think that is the case most of the time anymore.
Employers are always looking for cost savings and a long term employee is a more expensive employee, at least for the companies I have worked for, that seems to be the thought.
Anyway, companies don't seem to worry about being loyal to you anymore, so my loyalty isn't as high either.
