Most companies in the U.S. in today's market will tell you they value dedicated individuals that are loyal to the company. The fact is many of them don't really value you and will let you go at a moments notice no matter how long you have been there. If times get tough no matter how loyal or dedicated you have been you could find yourself without a job.
 
A friend who has been a consultant for close to a decade gave me these two bits of advice that I have found to be very true.
 
"Do what is best for you! If you are not happy at a position, you are going to torpedo your own career because subconciously you will not being your best work."
 
"If you interview well and fit their position companies will hire you. Especially if they think they can make money off you no matter what your tenure was at previous jobs."
