Benefits When Your Employment Ends

The header on the file that's currently on my desktop reads "Benefits When Your Employment Ends".  It does not make me smile.

For a girl that works PRIMARILY for the kick-ass benefits package that header is not comforting.

The good news: I did not lose my job.  I am still employed.  Very.Good.News.

The {less than} good news: my very stable US company was acquired by a growing company based in Canada.  They are committed to aggressive growth and development and not as committed to health insurance, stock options and retirement plans.

Less than good news (for me).  There is a lot of upside to the transaction and I truly am grateful to still be employed.  But let's face it.  It's my blog and I'll cry if I want to.

The cover page of the 38 page file also says this -

For U.S. employees whose employment transferred as a part of the sale/purchase of your company effective December 7, 2011.  The PESP portion of this document constitutes part of a prospectus covering securities that have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933. The Stock Plans portion of this document constitutes part of a prospectus covering securities that have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933.

I am more interested in decking the halls than rolling over my pension.  Please say a prayer that E and I make good decisions for our family this month and still take time to enjoy the magic of the season.  I don't want to miss a moment of merry.  Even Arthur the elf is counting on us for a safe landing.

Change sucks...it's hard...it's scary. I hope you come out of this unscathed.
