So the goal of most businesses (except some non profits) is to make money and as much a profit as possible. There are a few small businesses, but most large and mid size companies management at the top doesn't care about the workers. They see them as expenses. So CEO's, presidents, vice presidents, etc just see us all as numbers. That's why it doesn't make sense to be loyal to companies anymore. I work for money and have no loyalty to any company and will change for better opportunities

That’s why benifits in most developed countries especially Europe are mandated by the Government. People automatically get healthcare and 6 weeks off plus paid holidays. If a company wants to eliminate your position they have to retrain you in another position. Women get 6 months paid leave to stay home with new born etc. Don’t expect a company to step up to the plate and give benefits. They will lose to the company that doesn’t give the benefit. If you want the benefits we will need to be a socialist country. I’m not sure if that is good or not. People I know in Europe like it better. Not being political. I’m just stating facts.
Companies have removed all true benefits for staying longer (pension/good healthcare/job stability) and have found ways to increase profits that outpace the overall economy. The formula won’t change until the people as a whole hold them to a higher standard. Now, if you find a job with similar or better for $5-10k more per year why not take it. Actively look every 24- 36 months until you are financially where you want to be and in a culture where you want to work.
That was one of the benefits of the 80’s-2000’s. That twenty year run companies did both. They made money lots of it and took very good care of their employees. Insurance companies today, especially Allstate, are a cut throat operation as evidenced by their actions, lack of good pay, benefits, bonuses and most of all respect for the employees. and dare I say, ….love. People at all levels used to care about each other personally and professionally. And loved working for and with Allstate for a better future for everybody. Not anymore. It’s a what have you done for me lately type of management style at Allstate.
If you are constantly chasing money, you will never be fully invested or engaged in the work you're doing. I'm not saying you're wrong with your assessment, but rather your reaction to it. Call me naive, but I would like to stay in one place long enough to make a difference, and I'll never do that chasing a paycheck.
The point is to not be loyal or get attached
And your point is?
