    Depends really, you’ll be doing much of the same thing day in day out for a long time. But then again you possibly get more promotion opportunities due to loyalty.

    For the right price why not.

    True, and also, you will become more skilled at your job if you continue to do the same thing each day, which can lead to higher wages. However, it depends - if you were working at a factory every day, for example, and had to put three screws in a box as it passed along the production line, this would become really boring and repetitive.

    Possibly, if I was able to take on multiple different roles and have variation AND a nice big salary, then why not?

    That’s why I wrote depends. Some jobs naturally have a skill and wage roof, like the example you give. Whereas a builder may do their job for a long time as it is a specialist skill set and you work on different projects.

    I'd like to retire before I die ..

    Moving companies, particularly earlier in your career, can enable you to get a wider range of experience, and people to learn from. If you're not learning, move.

    If you're lucky enough to find a company that has people that can teach you a wide range of skills, is stable for decades, and pays well, then I'd stay. They're rare though, and you often don't know what the market rate has gone to without looking around. Depending on you career aspirations, it can be good to stay in one company for a long time, simply because you enjoy working there, which is usually down to the people. Most companies don't last a lifetime (in the same form), let alone individual departments.

    I want to work on cruise ships, so provided that I liked my company, I could stay working with them for a while. It isn't a 9-5 job in the same office every day. Different ships, different parts of the world. I also want to get promoted, so being loyal to my company would definitely be beneficial.

    what you are saying is you will never have a family and will die alone.

    I want to get married, but probably not kids, at least not until middle age. I'd love to be an old parent. As for my 20's and 30's, I really want to dedicate those years to what I love.

    You can, if it's a family-owned business. It's a trade off though: relative security (no pun intended) vs the fear that you've never truly been tested in external job market. Not for me though.

    why would anyone care about being “tested” in the external job market? Its all about making monyey to survive, anyone who sees working as anything more than surivival is a moron.
