At the end of the day, since I never signed any kind of licensing agreement or copyright transfer, I am still the owner of my code, even if I allow the company to use it, correct? If I leave the company, could I reasonably use that code for whatever purposes I fit, even if selling my code to someone else or asking my old company to license it if they wish to keep using it? How would other Slashdotters handle this situation?"

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
