1. No money would never be enough

"It's not just that they don't pay you enough, it's that they couldn't ever pay you enough make you feel good. If you could go as high as 50 to 100 percent more and still not be satisfied, then money isn't the problem and more of it won't make you feel better."

2. Nothing you do makes the least bit of difference
" If you still think that everything you do is meaningless, then you need to prepare for a job change—because once you believe you're wasting your time, it won't be too long before your employer believes it, too. "

3. You're not learning anything
" The market for your talents is changing every day, and unless you are evolving, too, you run the risk of becoming as obsolete as punch cards in a software world."

4. No one talks to you about the future in a positive way
"If no one further up the food chain says anything to you about the future, it could be a sign that the plan is to keep you in your slot—if you're lucky, and they don't need to make cuts. "

5. You hate your boss
" But let's face it, if you have a boss, any boss, you have days when you aren't thrilled with her. The occasional incident doesn't turn a good job into a wrong job. But when every day is Boss-Hating Day, that's another story. "

6. Who you are at work doesn't relate to the rest of your life

" If you're consistently uncomfortable at your workplace—as the result of a major personality conflict or a clash of ethics—you should get ready to move on. "
