Congrats. I left with a package back in June. Did they just inform you or was this planned for a while?

I wasn't informed. Walked in to work today, and there was the package. Surprise.

Congratulations!

Congratulations on your complete exit package from megacorp. That was a sweet deal. I was a 25 year employee at former megacorp. In hindsight, I should have worked out an exit deal. Unfortuntely, I decided to hang in there until retirement. Didn't work out, new division president invented a reason to fire me. Received a severance package, but not nearly as good as ours.

I am now retired and love it!! I had a lot of bitterness, but time does heal.
Playing golf 4 days a week and spending lots of time with grandchildren has sweetened me up!! Pity the poor bastards that have to work in the new millenium corporate world.

In my case I knew about my departure 8 months before it happened. I had planned on retiring but delayed my retirement by a couple of months to get the package and it worked out great.....

As part of my package I was offered a 6 months outplacement service but I only attended one session about "transition into retirement".

I'm not a military minesweeper, so I intend on taking my package with me when I'm done no matter what. 😳
