Odds of Hanging On

Unfortunately, the odds of hanging on are low in this career. You're facing high turnover in a job with a very high rate of burn-out. It isn't all that personally fulfilling to move people around from one job to another as if they were chess pieces on a board where everyone's a pawn (we'd better stop ourselves before we get too profound).
