It's every professional's nightmare: You're working in a great job for a well-regarded employer, then the company -- seemingly overnight -- suffers a crisis and is bought out or goes belly-up.

Are you worried your company could suffer a Bear Stearns-like implosion, and if so, what are you doing to get ready? If you worked for a company that failed, how did you deal with it?
