    Maybe it’s becoming more normal, or at least it’s a trend I’ve seen a lot in the past year or 2.

    In finance there is a big push to go ‘digital’ which creates a lot more change and requires a lot more people. Good people are hard to come by and are getting poached. Companies are now paying a lot to stop good engineers from going to tech or rival companies. It’s actually a great time to change jobs for a pay increase IMO.

    The team could also be stagnating, eg they were on the up a few years ago and now things are different. Maybe the product they’re working on is not being perceived as well, wasn’t successful, or the people who built it originally are not interested in maintaining.

    There could be a few other possibilities as well, like the environment being terrible or bad culture due to tech debt, too many prod issues and firefighting constantly, backward processes.

    If people start leaving though it’s very tough to fix things and make it better. Anyone decent will also get disenfranchised and move on too. It’s definitely not normal for such a high turnover in a high functioning team though.

  • When salaries go high layoffs come around. When moral is low, turn over is high

    The way companies manage their call centers it makes sense.

    Metrics are important but many make it all about the metrics screw anything that happens outside of work

    They care all about results and don't care about the employee

    Depends.. It can happen if your team had good people and they didn't get paid/promoted.

      In our team we used have 14 people and 5 left this year and then we recruited another 5.

    Companies work on LIFO strategy. While the grass looks greener on the other side, when shit hits the fan the most expensive person is first to go.

    7% attrition is the generally accepted voluntary attrition rate management uses at most large banks use.

    That's too high. Traders/PMs have been okay with this rate of turnover?
