Coworkers are assholes, company getting acquired soon - need advice

My coworkers are major assholes and i thoroughly hate going to work everyday. My company is getting acquired soon and I was hoping to get some advice on what my options are.

I’ve started to look for a new job but I don’t think I’ll have one by the time I have to sign the offer letter for my new company. 2 of my coworkers are jerks to me daily - nitpic my code reviews, talk over me in meetings, shoot down all my ideas, super passive aggressive over Slack, etc.

My manager is buddy buddy with both of them so has ignored my complaints about it and ignored my request to move teams. Is there any way I can get a severance or am I forced to sign the new offer letter or simply be out of work? Should I bring the issue to the attention of HR at the new company after we are acquired?

I appreciate any advice

    Stop caring at work. Stop responding to their attempts at agitation. Do LC, go to FAANG and succeed in life. That's the best revenge you can have.

    Move companies - one person can’t fix a bad culture. You’ll be so glad you did.

    Are you on H1B or otherwise have a hard deadline to find a job? If not, jump ship. The company getting acquired is a reason to leave too.

    Wait it out take your cut screw over them. Create your own mental space and fuck them regularly, thrice a day. They have no rights to bully you. And man up it's not right to get bullied, look for your chance and screw them big.
