Not just salary, but what job you have to do as opposed to what you actually want to do plays a big factor in determining whether to switch jobs or not. When it comes to freshers who enter organizations through placements, it happens many times that the profile they wanted eluded them and they ended up accepting another profile, what happens in most such cases is that even though these freshers have been recently placed, they will continue looking for employment elsewhere. Apart from being stuck in a wrong job, the opportunities available to employees if they stay with the organization also play an important role in determining whether they will look for opportunities elsewhere or not. Pay is certainly an important part of the equation, however its not the only factor determining the outcome.

Salary is no wonder an important criterian. However, opportunity to learn & grow must be equally important consideration. Learning opportunity provides one opportunith to build sustainable capabilities. Growth opportunity provides one an opportunity to attain aspiration. Company's ethical values should be also important criterian for job change. Doing something not matching to your personal value system under compulsion creates dissonance in the mind. One cannot enjoy wirking in such environment.

I feel it's an organisation work culture is the key parameter.

If employee are happy with the benefits provided by the organisation and their worklife is balanced with personal life, then its not necessary that salary is the key parameter for job change.

One of key indicator for job switch may the reporting manager.

Well salary does matter, but that's not all. Employees switch jobs for a number of reasons:
(i) Some switch jobs because the workplace they currently work in may not be that great to be in.
(ii) There are employees who are known to switch jobs maybe because they do not like the profile they are currently working in
(iii) while there are still others who choose to quit the company because they do not go along well with their bosses.
(iv) and yes, low compensation is yet another important reason why employees quit.

I don’t think In case of job switch, it’s only SALARY what matters…There can be n no. of reasons:-
*One can hate his present profile i.e. not satisfied with the current profile he is handling.He is looking for more challenging role in an org.
*Can have some issues with the Company or co-workers.
According to me,if a person is capable of performing salary will follow him automatically.

According to me, salary is not only the factor for switching the job. But there would be many reasons such as mainly about the work environment where they are working and colleagues in the organization matters a lot. And another reason like he or she might be searching for better opportunity. And lastly growth in the organization. They want to see themselves in high position but if they be in the same position where they were in initial stage they might get bore for working in the same department for long time.

Well I think , Salary is just one factor which leads to Job Switch. There are other factors as well which lead to people switching over jobs . Sometimes people find the current place monotonous and they dont think that its there field of working and so they make a decision to swith over. Some may have a problem with the environment in which they are working which can be another factor leading Job Switch. And others change due to the Salary , as it is the basic necessity for any individual to live his/her life the way they want. Hence, all this factors affect the decision of Job Switch of any individual.

The term "Salary" has a strong impact in present competitive world.

But it is really tough for the one to switch from the current job where he/she is very familiar. Salary may be one of the reasons but comparatively for a career minded person changing job may add flavor or he/she realizes that their skills to build there career is at a dead end in current workplace, or one might only be able to realize their full potential in another position.

No I don't feel the Salary should be the only constraint in job and if one is not getting good salary he/she should change the job.. but along with this, I would like to say Salary has major impact on our personal and social life so its will not be wrong to say salary is important..

Talking about today's environment, when companies are not having good human resources and in this kind of business scenario if one is good/talented, then no doubt he will make his shining position in any company he represents..

So for switching the job, salary should not be only constraint.

According to me SALARY is not only the factor for switching a job. There may be many more reasons for one to switch a job.
They can be:-
- One found himself bored with the work and looking for more challenges.
- There isn't room for growth with his/her current employer and he/she is ready to move on to a new challenge.
- Seeking a position with a stable company with room for growth and opportunity for advancement.
