A follow up to Michael Lopp’s “Shield’s Down” post, Roy Rapport outlines his scale:

At some point in my career, somewhere 10-15 years ago, I came up with a scale to assess how happily ‘sticky’ my current workplace is, also known as “how likely am I to leave right now?” (or, to follow in Rands’ metaphor, “how strong are my shields right now?”). Being a 0-5 scale, this has some nice alignment with ratings in my company’s systems, but this is but an accident.

I know where I am on that scale.
