Providence where you only get cheese on your pizza if you ask for a cheese pizza.

The best restaurants in the world list just came out. In the top 50 Mexico got three or four spots, places in Peru...not one from Canada! WTF Canadians? Up your game!

Mistake. If this is your thought going in don't go in. You need a minimum three year stint on your resume at this point. The only way to justify leaving in a year is to go to grad school.

Wouldn't this also be your third or fourth short tenure job in a relatively short career, GF? I know some of this isn't your decision, like with the layoff, but I have to admit that this is always a red flag for me

Did three years in consulting, then a year at my last startup and now this.

Also to be clear, I'd be gunning for a new position with the same employer but back in Boston ideally. Or just a new employer altogether. Now, THAT one would need to be more long term.

I think I can afford one more short stint. It's not unheard of within my generation.

I didn't realize you stayed three full years at that first job. I'd still caution you against "a year tops." I don't work in your world but when I hire I am 100% biased against serial job hoppers. If I see a resume with 15 years experience, and there's 10 jobs listed, not a chance at an interview.

Ah, that's right. Damn millenials

Serious question, do you find that employees are their most motivated and productive in their first years? Could it not be a benefit to both employer and employee for shorter stints?

Yeah, but you become a master at nothing. In work that I do, it takes two years before you can even work with any kind of autonomy.

No. The financial cost, mental energy, and general chaos of a high level turnover are extremely prohibitive. Pretty much it's a rare case when turnover is good. Hiring new blood can be good but I'd rather that be from growth vs. turnover and I'm still going to favour the new blood that looks like a long term player.

Exactly.
