Many of us have never used Perforce or ClearCase. I've only used
Subversion and very minimally CVS, so it's hard for me to answer that.

Since you've switched employers, it seems possible that there's also
a difference in server and/or client processing power or in the
network, all of which could contribute to performance differences.

As I understand it, Perforce and ClearCase have different ideas about
version control than Subversion and CVS do. Subversion is faster in
many operations than CVS. It could very well be that some operations
in Perforce or ClearCase are faster than equivalent operations in
Subversion, and just as easily vice-versa.

What specific operations are you finding slow? How is the server set
up? (http, https, svn, svn+ssh) BDB or FSFS backend? What client
(command-line, TortoiseSVN, etc.)? What OS on the server and client?
