why stay at jobs that don't give you what you want/need? (was Re: IxD Advice for Developers)

The previous thread about advice for developers and a conversation last
night at the NYC local gathering (more on that in a separate thread) I
had discussions with people who were really unhappy with their work
environments for various reasons.
I'd like to put out there that voting with your feet is definitely an
option right now. There are way too many jobs out there. Recruiters are
even giving bonuses for referrals they are so desperate for good talent.
I'm sure that Dan and others have reasons for staying, and that is
valid, but I wonder with this new bubble, do good designers really need
to put up with some of the non-designer bull that is out there?
Just a thought.
