I left my last job for reasons 1-4 (LOL) and am now considering leaving my current job due to a salary imbalance where I have the same job description as another employee but more duties and significantly less pay.

I left my last company for reason #1 and pivoted to a new industry/function but actually took a short-term pay cut (much higher salary but lower variable comp).

My last position I left for reasons #2/3 but stayed with the same company. It's interesting how different work life can be within the same company but between different departments.

The biggest driver for me has always been poor leadership. There is a saying, which I very much find true, people don't leave companies they leave managers. The other items on the list I believe are symptoms of the first. Management ultimately sets the tone for the other items.

There are two quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. that could become the mantra for workers who quit because they see something on their job they can’t stomach.

King said:
— “There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”
— “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

But I think King meant human rights towards workers, not because you don't like the behavior of your boss.
