Damn BDO! But it's prob good, then you can get unemployment . The one on PIP of you get fired. Company can let state know that you were fired and they will have proof if you challenge it.

PIP was a more formal process a few years back. Now we just go with a cut throat approach --- all be dammed. Have seen it happen in my office and it has created a lack of trust amongst the people, particularly managers and partners.

What's PIP?
