Signs point to...
When a business is bought by a competing business, it is often not good news for the employees. Redundancies aside, it also mean squashing competing products and processes. It means elimination of the weaker, the role played by the overtaken.
Many of my friends have already exited. I may soon join them.
I was fortunate to have been given generous notice, more then some. And I hold out hope that my usefulness could still be recognized, but that is looking less likely everyday.
Finding new employment is difficult these days, especially for someone who desires a fulfilling job, but is in his sixth decade. But it is often said things happen for a reason, and often lead to new and better experiences.
After all, exits are also entrances... to what is beyond.
