For those on PIP who are eventually let go, how long does it take from the day PIP is signed? I know PIPs usually go 30,60,90 days - but what’s the typical “survival time”? Assuming it takes at least 60 days till final termination, I fail to see how 2 months severance is a better deal (aside from having some free paid time).
- Amazon spdnvFrom someone who has had to put multiple people on both, I’m telling you to take the severance. You will get more money and either way, if you fail the PIP which is about an 80% chance based on data you won’t be eligible for rehire in either case. Take the money, take that extra time to go find a better role somewhere else.
- Unless this major positive event is your doing that shows you shouldn’t be perf managed, I would say still take severance. Most managers choose 30 day PIP and that is basically a death sentence. One common theme I’ve seen with people who end up in this situation is poor judgement and decision making, just take it and move on.
Yes on the term date.Feb 11
- @spdv i am in the middle of closing and need it to process before I terminate. From your knowledge, if i am told I will be put on PIP today (but I have not been presented with any documents yet), how many days / weeks it take to actually start the one (which my understanding kicks off when document is signed)
- @spdnv I am not yet officially in pivot, i’ve been told to think till mid next week on my preference for pivot vs severance. i have meeting with my manager to discuss that on wednesday. From there, my understanding I need to be presented the document of PIP and the document of severance package, one of which i need to sign. Correct?Feb 20
