negotiate severance package after layoff
I recently just got layoff after working for 3ish months as a software engineer at a tier 2 big tech company (I do not work for Chase, but am merely using a friends old account for access to blind).
The layoff was due to reasons outside of my control and bad team management ( no proper training to learn about the code base and the internal system, could not get help for learning, assigned meaningless tasks, unrealistic expectation from the managements, upper management has favor for certain employees, etc ).
Company gave me one month of salary, one month of Cobra insurance as my severance package. I was wondering if I may have any chance of negotiate it to something higher like 3-4 additional months of salary, and a longer period of health insurance coverage. I have not sign the paper yet and have a little bit of time to decide.
I have some not so positive information on the management and was wondering if I could use that and the key points that I mentioned above as my negotiation leverages. Has anyone similar in my situation was able to negotiate a way better severance package on way or another?
Thank you for reading. My TC: used to be at poverty level compare to FANG people before the layoff, now it is none. lol
