So... the company I've been employed by for the past six years has been bought out. This information was just recently released to employees, and was just made public a couple of days ago.
The new company apparently has "comparable" benefits. Our agreement came around today to sign. The idea was basically, "sign this or be unemployed." A couple of things I noted:
- no stock purchase
- years of service do not count towards pension benefit accruals
Fab. This "compares" to over $3500 loss of income.
This change of company had better not fuck with my intended application for a mortgage in a few months. I mean, it's a new company, but I'm not in a new job... I hope the bank/lender/whatever sees it that way.
I'm getting really irritable.
On another note, does anyone local have an old Pentium III system they don't want anymore? Specifically, I'm looking for a motherboard with a socket 370... prob'ly not, but it can't hurt to ask. :)
