Seven in ten tech workers are considering quitting next year, according to a new survey of 1,200 people.
Their main reasons were working hours, limited career opportunities and toxic work environments.
The labor shortage continues to wreak havoc in many industries.
According to a new survey by educational software company TalentLMS and Workable, 72 percent of US technicians are considering quitting their jobs in the next 12 months.
About four in ten of the 1,200 IT, software and tech workers surveyed said they were considering leaving their jobs because of their limited career opportunities.
Other common reasons for leaving were inflexible working hours, feeling underestimated and toxic work environments.
Almost a third of respondents said that a lack of remote working opportunities also led them to quit.
85% of respondents said their company is more focused on attracting new employees than investing in existing employees. They said that more training and learning would make them feel more motivated, and that they would be more flexible about where and when to work.
Another 58% of all respondents said they suffered from burnout, although only 30% of those who think about quitting named burnout as the main reason.
The US is suffering from a huge labor shortage catalyzed by the pandemic and people are rethinking their expectations of work.
This has fueled the "Great Resignation" with record numbers of people who have given up their jobs. Some return to training, others change industries or start their own business.
A separate poll by Joblist found that 73% of Americans are considering quitting their jobs.
The labor shortage has hit industries that range from education and healthcare to trucks and restaurants.
To address their labor shortages, some companies have raised wages and started offering hiring bonuses.
Some chip companies, including Intel, are even hiring college students to address a labor shortage amid rising demand for semiconductors.
