When I speak to friends working for large corporations I often ask why they havent moved on or opted for contracting or considered starting their own business.
The answers are normally the same across the board.
I have a mortgage… Its risky.. I dont have enough experience.. Its not secure..
I think this is a problem with 90% of employees. Their idea of security is a regular paycheck from their employer and each time the employee review comes around they hope for a payrise.. It may be 1% , it might be 0% but they are happy to stay year after year with the security.
