Hey guys. I was put on PIP and I’m looking for a job. Can someone please help me? I am an SDE with experience in React, NodeJS, AWS. Thanks.

- Honeywell that1guySorry, but you’re asking for referral due to losing job from poor performance. Why should anyone refer you? Maybe you should go to a smaller company, learn more, get more experience and work hard.
- Capital One BeastM0DE@honeywell the level of competition at Amazon is really high and there are a ton of factors that could lead to a PIP completely unrelated to the engineer (e.g.politics, manager poor performance/communication, etc). Capital One is not even a tech company, but they are trying to emulate the culture and I see it here all the time. I am sure OP has a ton of better options, but I would gladly give a referral.
- Amazon Db8db4I will rephrase Honeywell's point: aside from looking for referrals also take an honest look why you ended up at the bottom. It is good to retrospect on those points and try to fix it or realign your career towards your strong points. It's possible it was a team mismatch, but without looking in you might repeat same mistakes. Good luck!May 43
- New arch135Tag companies you would like to apply for and ask for referrals.. btw what’s the criteria in amazon for putting someone on PIP
- LinkedIn tar-cfzI learned by watching PIPped coworkers that you want to just take the severance and go away (at a previous place)
- AnchorFree IsraelI just learned what is severance googling it, thank you :) . I'm like a baby on this forum, googling TC, PIP, "are the quoted compensation ranges on teamblind true or fake and mystification" loool :D
Do all big companies offer severance packages? What it should be usually, a 1-2 months of pay?
- OP, did you get any severance? One of my friend in Seattle is currently in Dev List. How long do you think he has before getting fired?
- There's a formula. I don't know it off-hand, but it's based on two variables: base salary and years of service.
I would honestly recommend taking the severance. It's incredibly difficult to survive a formal PIP--and even if you do, you're then stuck on a team or under a manager that doesn't want you, which then in turn means you'll need to attempt a transfer with a less-than-ideal performance record.
- Sorry to hear that. Best of luck, I am sure you will get some referrals here. I wish I could :(
