It's fine if you personally would take stability in your job at the expense of working with competent co-workers. Many people aren't interested in that deal. You don't seem to want to hear that people might feel differently than you do. Working with people who are looking to protect their own paycheck above anything else (and will overlook bad co-workers, among other things in the process) is not something I am interested in. That kind of thinking is shortsighted, and often causes more harm than good.

We feel differently about this. That's fine. We can agree to disagree here.
When I have enough passive and semi passive income assets such that a loss of pay check has no influence on my families quality of life I will think like you, but we are not there. The only reason people take jobs for others is money.

Default office politics

In my point of view I would suggest one should first try to understand each other point of views and then try to react to a particular situations and try to deal with situations patiently and put your point forward with more confidence . i also went through an amazing article about how to deal with office politics i recommend you must read

Exactly.

It amazes me that some people think otherwise, or maybe they are just pretending so that they can fit in with the American workaholic society. As if the accountant crunching numbers all day or the insurance underwriter reviewing applicants' information all day has a passion for it and would much rather go to his job than engage in world travel, hike in the mountains, sip piña coladas on the beach, or participate in other enjoyable leisure activities. Oh please.

You're in luck: Longtime employees don't do that.

Wait until you work at a company for X amount of years, and you will know the feeling about the fresh junior faces who act like they know it all and are very disrespectful. Those senior employees were young and new before; they could not be there for X amount of years if there were slacking, lazy and bad mouthing to their senior or the management. They were working hard for many years, and they are experienced.

What do you expect when you are new? You better to keep your mouth shut, observe and learn something from them.
