Did anyone make it out of PIP?

Jan 19 19 Comments

Just an honest question. I'd like to hear more about people getting genuinely put into PIP (slipping performance) and recovering back into normal status within their respective company. Not to the folks that got put into PIP for some elaborate way of getting fired.

Also, how did you feel about being put into PIP even though you thought that you were performing well?

    Pip is usually a job fit issue. Best to find success elsewhere.

    Best to go! In software engineering it’s very easy to just fail upwards

    I’d either take the money and go to a competitor, or if I appealed and won, I’d join a new team. No point staying where you’re obviously not valued.

      To keep it short, I don't like my role and I'm trying to get out before I got the PIP. I didn't even flinch when it was announced.

      Consider this: you can appeal if you feel you having a leg to stand on. That way, they’ll come back with a larger payout you won’t refuse.

      I can try that but the grass looks greener on the outside. I need a change. Thanks for the tip. 👍

    A PIP shouldn't be a surprise. Meaning, your performance should have been discussed several times before ending up on a PIP. I have seen employees successfully move off of a PIP and I have seen others fail. I don't believe in putting anyone on a PIP who I know can't improve. Good luck to you.

  • I think if you get a pip you should find a different team / company ( assuming you did your bit and think it’s unfair )

    I've put four people on PIPs at other companies. Two I fired, two recovered.

      Why did you put them on PIPs?

      Because they were struggling. No politics involved, no quotas, no bullshit. They were having problems. I worked with all four and two were able to get it together.

    Nah. It was part of an elaborate scheme. They eventually just said for me to pretend the PIP never happened. Smh.

  • How is that you made it into PIP? Did you get warning messages?
