Get laid off, then you get severance


Look for bench work for an MD, or on a proposal Then look if you can write yourself into the work. Relationships and potential sales buy you time


How long have you been on the bench?


Collect severance.


Min 2 weeks though, if ya been around less than 2 years



Wow start looking. Sorry op.

It’s not you CC who has that talk with you. It starts with the TFS and HR and perhaps DTE lead. Hang in there cowboy!

No, it is your CC who has the talk. Just get ready to hit myScheduling hard this week. Severance is (I think) a week for every year of service
