This is actually a common practice in many industries (not just the computer software industry). But a further detail is...you cannot go to work for a "competitor company". So this 2-year rule may not always apply...depending what company you are leaving...and which company you're going to work for next.

All companies may not do this...but then many do. If this is a concern...then you need to be very careful who you work for (read the fine print).

Many times if someone is graduating from college...and the choice is ZERO income or $75,000+/year...sometimes this "2 year rule" is not so important!
