It depends on your temperament and objectives. I've just started my 6th
year with this company, and I still feel like a "newcomer." Most of the
TWs in our department have been here 10, 15, 20 years or more.

Early in my career, I did a lot of job-hopping because I thought it got
you ahead faster. But after I got married, bought a house, and had kids,
I put more of a premium on stability. Now, as I edge toward retirement,
I have no intention of leaving here before then. Of course, if they
chose to lay me off, I would have no control over that!

Hey...I cannot imaging any company WANTING me to stay for 5 years.

....I can't even imagine staying at one company for five years.

My opinions are mine, and neither you nor my company can take credit for
"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good
poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few
reasonable words.", Goethe
"Say all you have to say in the fewest possible words, or your reader
will be sure to skip them; and in the plainest possible words or he will
certainly misunderstand them.", John Ruskin
"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish,
and he will sit in a boat and smoke cigars all day."
