They may wish to do so, but f they really want to hire you away from another job they don't really have the ability to do so unless you let them.

Been there, done that.

UstaCorp HR Weenie: "Sorry, but our policy is to..."

Me: "Gosh! I have a policy, too... Bye!"

Being in a position of some financial security can be emancipating.

Agree.... but someone mentioned getting paid while waiting to get on some of the benefits like 401(k) etc.... it might not be an issue IF you want to go back....

I'd have a hard time going back to a company that let me go recently. Maybe it is just age talking. If you're young(er), then it is probably worth the risk to go back for 10% more. That's something like 3% for each year you weren't there, and 4% to pay you back for inconveniences you went through due to there poor judgment.

No, not a competitor. I will be getting more than 10%. Should another RIF happen again, I would get another 6-month severance package and may call it quit as I am already FI.
