May I have your take on it please?
Yes turn over rate is high due to burn out and constant night works. Youíre also sacrificing WLB immensely for a somewhat average/mediocre pay, which are crucial factors employees are considering nowadays. Many also left because they are stuck at the same grade for a long time and see no way out, and feel that itís scholarsí playground. Lastly, thereís very little transferable skills in our line of work (more like a generalist overseeing project progress) and hence those who can leave will leave early to avoid being trapped here forever skill wise.
