After having several jobs I disliked for various reasons, and doing a lot of
soul-searching to discover what it is I do want, I've come to the following

I'll be happy working with a company in a particular position if any two of
the following three criteria are met:

* I enjoy doing what I'm doing right now, at least for the most part

* I see a future in this job -- I'm learning new stuff, different projects
are coming down the pipe, there's room for advancement

* I'm being adequately and equitably paid

The perfect job meets all three. Less than two, and I'm outta there!
