D1, quite a few good people are "below average" when considering all metrics and would still be here had the firm been doing well

I would never assume anyone is 100% safe. All sorts of things can happen and they are not always in your control. No need for paranoia but it does not hurt to be prepared.

You're almost always safe if you're doing well. Most people just lack the perception to know when they're doing below average, but not terrible enough for someone to say something.

I am not sure what to do. My company just had another round of massive layoffs. So far my job was spared. I do got a job offer from a different company but the salary is way lower than what I have now (20,000$ less). Should I choose for financially stability but with a lower salary, or take the risk, keep the higher salary, but have a high chance to loose it as the company isnโ€™t doing great.

I worked as a technical PM for a medium-sized adtech company in NYC in charge of 2 technical teams, and the business intelligence team.

On Thursday I was informed by the lead PO and HR that leadership had decided that the project management office was no longer necessary for the company and all three of us, the director and the two technical PMs, were being let go. None of us were given any notice.

They offered me 2 weeks of severance pay and I negotiated it to 3.
