in thread Surviving Layoffs

Having been through the stay for a sev package, I would never do it again. I would compare it to being a crewmember on the titantic as it started to go down- knowing it was sinking, knowing you had a job to do, but knowing you will be one of the last to get a life boat. The company knows you are leaving, so everytime you do anything the least bit wrong, you raise eyebrows. The company I worked for also took me out of my role as "problem fixer" and sent me back in as a plain old support rep. I also was constantly kidded about my lack of invites to meeting as what difference does it make- you won't be here. I would suggest take them up on their offer, but start looking. It is always easier/less stressful to find a job when you don't need one. You will be under no rush, and can get what you think the best fit for you will be regarding a new position. HTH
