I was working for a tech startup for 8 months and everything was fine - I loved my job. But lately payments started to be late, 1-3 days late (which I was fine with then but probably was a red flag) became week or two late. And finally my employer called me, told me that they ran out of money (since it's bootstrapped business) and are suspending for an unlimited time till they sort out the finances. And offered to find myself a job at some web agency meanwhile.
My situation is that I'm a student and will do a placement/internship in about 8 months, so I just need a temporary job, to make living meanwhile.
The main thing which is holding me in this company is that during this time I made some good friends with most of the colleagues and just miss working there.
My question is, is it a no brainer to say good bye to the current employer?
Because I think a solution proposed by my employer might be a bit unprofessional (no matter how much I love the job) - get a new job, then leave it, come back and hope we won't have problems again.
