DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2021 / -- Because technical talent is scarce, Devetry, a software consultancy, recently conducted and published a software developer survey. One question was, “why did you leave your last job?”

18.4% Compensation
10.8% Burnout
7% Lack of flexible work options
6% Layoff (COVID or otherwise)

Devery found that for women, almost 40% reported a “lack of professional growth opportunities” as their number one reason for leaving. For men, the number one response was “poor relationship with management” at 21%.

This survey was conducted in July 2021. Approximately 490 software developers took the survey. Results are published in a gated report, but marketing is happy to send it out to anyone interested.
