Thread regarding Broadcom Corp. layoffs

Is Broadcom severance package negotiable?

I'm notified today to be let go.
I'm told Broadcom has a standard severance package, which is two week's pay for each full year of service in the company.

Did anybody ever negotiate with the standard package?
Do we have to give up all RSUs?
Can we delay the payment until next year when my income and hence my tax rate will be lower?

They are not going to delay your payment. Broadcom gives zero sh–s about your tax situation and wants you off the books as soon as possible.

what I mean is if I delay the payment to next year, do I need to worry about Broadcom changes mind and stop the payment?

Can we delay the payment until next year when my income and hence my tax rate will be lower?

Isn't severance usually some base number of weeks plus two weeks for every year of service.

Take it or leave it.

who is Charlie?

Do you know if anybody was able to negotiate a better deal than the standard one?

The bad of the standard one is that you have to leave all unvested RSUs void!

Sure, and you can choose whether to negotiate your package with either Hock or Charlie.
