An NDA by nature requires a certain amount of silence OP. I did it and it sucked, and continues to suck.

Yes.

If you need the money to survive they leave you no choice but to sign. If you have other means to survive until you land the next gig then def do not sign anything.

yes.

Care to share more sapient?

Ok I understand CD. I guess my question was more- do you regret going the severance / NDA route? Or are you happy with the choice?

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
