I left after 1 1/2y after the CA acquisition. Glad that I did. No regrets about leaving. Everyone has its price - I took some shares during the time and dropped almost half a million USD in RSUs. I don’t give a sh– about that money - I prefer the freedom and the opportunity to work for a really market leading company that threats their clients and employees in a total different (positive) way!
The loss of the RSUs are easily compensated over the next 4-6y in my current company. So stop seeing the RAUs as golden handcuffs ;-) Also other companies have great packages and offer RSUs and if you don’t take the next best job (and your are talented and motivated) you will be surprised what other companies have to offer!
ps: If you think CA people are lazy you have not yet worked with the Symantec guys :-)))))
