Are there any pros to staying at a company and getting laid off, vs. proactively looking for a new job and quitting before it happens? I.e., financial (possibility of receiving severance or any other benefits). Or is being laid off just all bad? I don’t know if my job is at risk — I don’t believe it is — but my agency lost some clients and is talking about cost cutting to be safe and get ahead of it. Fwiw, I’m ready for a change anyway.

Unless you’re wealthy, would recommend getting laid off vs. leaving. You’ll probably get a severance and may even get benefits coverage for a few months after. Plus you never know how long it’ll take to find another job.

Oh yeah I meant securing a new job before quitting, not quitting without a new one lined up.

I just got laid off last week after eight years with my company. They were bought by a larger company and they trimmed two senior Directors to make more on the deal. I wanted to leave but I was so overwhelmed with work that I had almost no free time to look. Now I can go on vacation without worrying about work and I have six months severance. But I still worry about finding a role that is what I want in that time, TBH.

Be proactive and look for a new job, you sound ready for it any way

I'm sure this varies by situation, but if you get laid off you get unemployment. Definitely factor that into the equation.
