It's so close to March and bonus season... Why leave now?

Now is the time to start looking. This company is really getting worse by the day. If you can stay until you get your STI, do it. If you can't leave then hang on but when you start looking you will be amazed at the benefits that other companies offer. There isn't the day to day chaos and the constant stress of wondering when you are going to be RIF'd. Also most companies now have embraced working from home. Just for the heck of it, start looking and apply. You may wonder why you did'n't pursue this earlier. I think if you stayed until 1/1/20 you still get your STI.
Now is the time to look, to land a job, then give your notice as soon as your bonus payout hits your bank account.
Many companies will cover your STI as a sign on bonus. Mine did, and I plan on poaching several folks from AIG. The rep on the street for AIG is good talent, awful management, and it's spot on.
People are leaving because this place is toxic. It's like cancer that has metastasized. It's like a slow death. But it's coming. BD did nothing for this company. Now he's on the verge of retiring. Hiring PZ and taking away perks and any benefits he can from the worker.
People are leaving because they are finding better jobs with more benefits and more money. Many stayed at first because they could work at home. Now other companies are offering their employees to work at home. So in reality if you find a better job, why would you stay.
My theory on why we don’t get solid feedback on the where, when and how many when it comes to alleged RIFs on this site.
I believe all severance packages come with a NDA. Once you’re RIF’d and collecting your severance, it’s not worth the risk FYI’ing people on this site.
To Post ID: @12EKYRNp-6zwb what line of business or departments are RIF's coming? Bring it on!
RIFS are coming, Texas, Calf. Midwest and East Coast. Happy New Years.
Duh! It would be a smart move to get out while you can to support your family. It is one of smart decision for anyone who is still with the company. I left AIG once I was able to find a new job before December 13,2019. Use common sense folks!
If you live in California the the PTO payoff is more than the bonus. Better to leave now while companies have the budget.
Companies have a nice fresh budget at the first of the year....best time to get a new job.
Plus....this place is getting really scary....you never know when your number will be called and your job is sent overseas.
Because it's a demeaning company to work for.
