Not quite the same but in the last couple of weeks I have been approached by several consulting companies wanting to know if I would be interested in discussing aspects of the industry I worked in prior to retiring. Although they did not want to tell me much without a non disclosure agreement I was able to figure out that it looks like a company not currently in the specific segment of the business is looking to enter what is a very profitable segment of my former employer's business. The standard pitch was "we will pay you $200 an hour for your insights". Considering I still have a mid 6 figure amount in my ESOP account, yeah I am gonna help you enter a business segment to compete against the company I worked for 34 years.
