Re: Retention offer to handle company closure

If you're confident of securing another gig, and potentially gaining the equivalent of the "shut up shop" retention bonus as part of a salary increase at a new employer....then you'll be in the lucky position of having choices

And seriously, please don't take the situation to heart - its really important that you see the positives rather than continue to feel pissed off. Easier to say than do I appreciate. At this point in your career, you're just lucky to have never had the prospect of your job disappearing....its a situation that is arguably more normal than not within some industries and has been so for many years.

I've met too many people over the years who wind up unconsciously carrying grudges about ex employer companies. That kind of chip on your shoulder will be spotted by any decent recruiter or HR person or savvy business leader from a mile off, and many of them will simply refuse to work with you (although they'll never admit to it).
