Hey there, brethren! I have a bit of a situation and decided I’d try calling in the cavalry/BALG Army…
It seems as though the company I work at has been acquired by another company, although nothing has been broadcast to employees as of yet. I do know, however, that people are interviewing for their own jobs. If you’ve ever seen Office Space, it’s a case of “the Bobs”.
The Best Case Scenario, for yours truly:
The company is purchased for $1 or more per share. I have 8 years of fully vested options. This would provide me with a nice chunk of change, which I could use to repair recent financial disaster. If I kept my job and my regular paycheck on top of this, that would be fucking RAD.
The Worst Case Scenario:
The company is purchased for $0.01 per share. My 8 years of stocks are worthless. I lose my job with little or no severance pay and am, consequently, fucked.
I could use all the good juju anyone might be able to offer. But it has to happen fast. I suspect that we’ll know our fate sometime this week. This is the perfect time to strike, while the reality of the situation is still malleable.
Big love and appreciation for anyone who can contribute to the Best Case Scenario playing out!
