Although, they've been slowly offshoring our work to Slovakia, so I wouldn't be surprised if they got rid of our jobs altogether in the next few years. Plus, if they do cut me, it releases me of my obligation to the company for my MBA. I either have to stay with them for two years after I graduate in May or I have to pay them back for the degree. If I leave the company, I can definitely make more somewhere else, but I'd owe them lots of money in return.
I hope that everything turns out ok for you.
