Got hit out of the blue with the RIF hammer today - I was not expecting it as I was #3 / 20 in sales, so it is entirely unexpected. They let a bunch of people go. I think I got tapped because I was vocal about the inadequacies of the new comp plan this year (respectful but direct about the issues) and the new VP of sales I think just decided he didn't want to deal with me.
My question for the group is - I've been offered a severance package. This is the first time I've had that grace, so I don't have any experience with it.
Is there any reason why I should think twice about accepting it? I read through it and it seems pretty standard (they've agreed to pay out earned commissions as well as all outstanding expenses.)
