I got a PIP, first ever in my career. I had been performing poorly for six months but got a raise last four months. Can you believe part of my poor performance is not participating enough?! Startup life for you. I'm expecting to be let go no matter what improvements I make because the timing doesn't make any sense. Blind community, can you help me understand what my options are at this time especially regarding unemployment. I haven't signed anything but I did agree to make improvements. Many thanks everyone!
Most pips are not actually performance related but a political move. The fact they gave you a bump in salary and fair notice is a nice thing. Take this as a big hint and start looking elsewhere ASAP. Try your best at your current work space but don’t over-exert yourself and instead use that energy to find a new job. Good luck!
