[Q] Anyone else really concerned about all the top employees leaving HTC?
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to put in links here (haven't posted in a while), but top HTC employees like Ford Davidson, Scott Croyle, and others (as well as a few last year, like HTC Asia CEO Lennard Hoonik and Chief Product Officer Kouji Kodera) have been leaving HTC recently. Every time I see one of these stories, I get a little more worried. Typically, when a lot of top executives and employees are leaving a company at the same time, it's a cause for concern. Though they might say they're leaving for personal reasons, it's often because they see a bad future for the company.
Is this a legitimate reason to be concerned at this point? I really like the HTC One M8 and I was about to order one today when I saw the article about Davidson (the third about a departing HTC employee in recent days) and I got cold feet. My main concern is that if the company is really going downhill, they might not be able to continue to support the phone for the next two years (or, at least, that support might be inadequate and slow). Is this a serious issue, or am I overreacting and extrapolating too much from a couple of guys possibly wanting a break after releasing a major flagship product?
