    I've been in this trade and with the same company for 14 years.
    If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.

    13 years, 1 at the first shop and 12 with this one. I'll stay here as long as I can. Why leave here and do the same job somewhere else?

    five years with a special projects outfit doing chiller/boiler/tower quick turn replacements and service. Eleven years with a national control contractor doing service and project management on high value assets, two years with a commissioning company, and finally on my own since 2004. and oh, the pension thing I got more than that in the lowest fund out of my three.

    11 in 4 states. Never left on bad terms and never looked back. Longest stints where 10 years at 1 and 16 at another.
    I wish I could find the old Far side cartoon, 2 goldfish in a bowl saying "he went over the wall 3 weeks ago he must have made it".
    Never argue with a crazy man.
