I would strongly consider leaving if my manager decreed that I mustn’t use vim and must instead use webstorm/atom/whatever (especially if not in vim mode).

I’ve spent a lot of time setting up my dev environment so it works well for me, and I’m more productive and happy in it.

Style/formatting consistency is one thing, but editor uniformity is an unrelated thing. Yes, it makes collaborating easier, but is that worth the cost of people being less happy or less productive?

I don’t dislike other editors, but I like my setup a lot, and there are, imo, pretty huge switching costs involved in switching to/from vim/emacs and a GUI editor.
