Is it common to negotiate the severance package when receiving and offer letter? I.e 3 months of severance for more senior roles? (VP and up)

I have been in the industry for ~ 20 years, career slowed down when I went part time to raise a family and care for aging parents and when I moved to Milwaukee, I took a demotion. I was part of Covid layoffs and have been applying for an Account Director role. When I looked on LinkedIn, the company has a lot of young people at VP level. How do I negotiate for that after the fact? What does VP mean at your company?

Due to Covid & a new VP, everything is changing at my company & senior reps are being micromanaged like new hires. Seniors are quitting and being fired like nothing I’ve ever seen. Anyone else?

I think I may be getting laid off today: got a strange meeting invite for a call with my VP & HR. Any advice?

Currently a manager, reporting to VP. There’s a need to fill an open director position, who I would report to instead of directly to VP. I don’t meet the years of experience in the posting, but I have been doing the requirements of that posting in my D2D. I do plan on going to B-school PT starting next year. On one hand I can see how working under a director can be beneficial, where I can learn from their experience and have more time to focus more on my growth while in school. Shoot my shot?
