Sorry for the lame and shameless plug but I couldn't help it. There was indeed a period 6 months ago when I didn't think I would have a job right now. Sandisk had just bought our company and there were a bunch of us who wondered what a flash/solid state company was going to do with a hybrid storage system. Hybrid meaning we use flash storage as well as spinning disks in the same box. Sandisk didn't do spinning hard drives.

Today I can proudly state that we are on our own, me and my 90 other co-workers are owners/founders of a wonderful hybrid storage company!

@maxdancona,
Exciting and scary all at the same time. From this point forward we either succeed or fail on our own, our destiny is in our own hands.

In full disclosure, I am not any of the people mentioned in link nor am I claiming to be one of them. I'm a support engineer towards the bottom of the ladder.

@Baldimo,
The title insurance company I worked at for 20 years went through a leveraged buyout from the holding company while I was there. All the board of directors and division managers bought shares. After about 10 years of great success, those division managers who sold their stocks and left the company made quite a tidy profit, enough for early retirement in a very comfortable lifestyle.

Hope your company has a similar success.

But thankfully there IS a ladder.
