I’ve been entered into Pivot. I’m appealing. I was given a list of panelists to review to decide whom to remove. I did some basic research on each of them (Phonetool, Facebook, LinkedIn). All are 3 degrees away from me, so no connection. Any input/thoughts?

    I have no idea what you guys are talking about. But have enough of a faint idea to be glad I turned down my offer.

    Don't appeal it, embrace it! You're about to get 3 months paid vacation!

    You should remove more junior panelists, IMO. They are more likely to side with company/your current manager (for lack of backbone/fear). More senior people are more likely to make judgements based on your data/case. I appealed pivot and won, you can dm me for more info.

    If there is any link at all (been in meetings, interacted before) and you are mentioning the area of interaction in the doc, it may be good to keep that panelist to gain credibility with them (if the little area you have in common checks out then likely your entire doc is more believable, eben the areas that you did not interact over).

      I disagree, voting is anonymous, so Jr panelist are more likely to side with you and better understand you're perspective. Seasoned managers are likely more loyal to the company than a random person.

    That’s the norm so they can make purely managerial judgements on the case. Rather than bring their personal biases from the same or partnering org. I know someone who made a very specific and data driven doc - with timelines well articulated- to make their case and they won. So make sure you have a clear doc because ... Amazon.

    Good luck
