Poll: Nearly 3 in 4 Tech Workers in DC Would Consider Leaving Their Employer for Amazon

A recent survey highlights many of the problems facing the government tech sector, showing that 71% of the technology employees in the Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland, and Washington, D.C. areas would consider leaving their current job for a position at Amazon. The new Amazon location is expected to hire up to 25,000 new jobs at an average of $100,000 in salary per year. “Area employers should be worried, especially those that need to retain their tech talent…and given the ongoing government shutdown and chronic morale issues, federal agencies should be particularly concerned about losing their top performers to Amazon.” Leading reasons for the potential switch include higher salary and interesting work.
