Finally reached the age of 53 with 32 years at the company. I can finally relax. If walked out guaranteed to be given a two year package which gets me to 55 and pension. Was always leaving at 55 anyways. Time to coast and mail it in from now on. Waiting anxiously for the call from HR.
Freedom from the "New" company is within sight.
I no i don't feel bad in any way shape or form. They changed the culture, not me. And FYI, I am one of many in the same position.
