Quit? Hell no. Unless you have a better offer somewhere else. Ride that wave and get severance, always.

I’ve been laid off 3 times. Always received a nice package and have never been questioned when interviewed at new opportunities. @AD1, you can always negotiate for a larger severance if you don’t sign anything right away. If you are laid off vs fired - they don’t want to burn a bridge, you were worth the role, they just can’t afford to keep you.

Start interviewing, but don’t quit. You can apply for unemployment benefits if you’re let go + severance, so much safer to wait or get a better offer.

Lol I'm a professional, I would never not to my job. But so were some of the people they claimed were underperforming, and let go. It doesn't make sense.

What state are you in? In nyc if you're let go you can almost always get unemployment unless the employer can prove that you did something wrong. Even if they say that they're getting rid of you because you weren't capable of doing your job well, you can still get unemployment. NY considers that if an employer offers you a job and you turn out not to have the experience they need, that's their fault for hiring the wrong person, not yours, so you still get unemployment. Also, you should always apply for unemployment even if your employer says that you don't qualify. In NY at least, the unemployment office determine your eligibility, not the company. The company has to prove why you aren't eligible for unemployment, and if they can't, they have to give it to you.

For those who were laid off from a startup, what are some warning signs? Currently at a startup - we are nowhere near profitable, and have significantly negative cash flows. Based on my calculations we’ll need more funding in about 6 months (after we just closed series C). I feel like the investors see something I don’t… but I should just recognize they’re smarter than I am and I should just trust the fact that they’re investing?

I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.
