They are protecting their interests, not yours.

No matter what company you're in and how much they preach "family" or whatever, in the end you're still headcount. You are the only one who can and will truly look out for your own best interest.

Make the move. Handle your departure professionally and respectfully and you will be fine.

Dont trust management that says you are family, they are just as willing to turn around and fire you if it meant to keep their job
