I work on a development team that kind of sticks together across companies. There were 12 of us when I first interned with them. They all got deemed redundant during a cost cutting initiative.
They basically split between 3 companies and I joined one of them. Spent a year in that job before most of us were recruited to one of the other two companies by a newly promoted member of the team who was building out her own group.
Fast forward about two years and that project had gone into maintenance mode. As usual, raises were not forthcoming, so we split between two companies different companies.
Have spent a year there and am there right now.
Now, they are reforming the original team at the first company and I am wanted again and my team members at my current company are going back.
As the most junior member of the original pod, I have mostly just been pulled along by one of the more senior members who wants me on their team. I haven't had a truly competitive interview (plenty of sham ones to satisfy HR) over all these job changes.
My concern is just about whether all the changing is going to make me noncompetitive in case the pod ever breaks up and I can no longer rely on my network for jobs.
