So, I finally got a replacement for my contract today from MIPS (I lost my previous one) and discovered that my notice period is… wait for it… three months. Is it just me, or would you, as a company, not particularly want a dissatisfied employee remaining for three months after they give intention to go? I mean… Sure you want a nice handover period, hell, I’d probably have offered to stay for six or maybe eight weeks if my notice period had been only a month, but three months? Fuck! On the other hand, that does mean that even if I had been interviewed for $COMPANY I wouldn’t have started there until around now. sigh To put this in perspective; when I was offered the job I was so enthusiastic about the kernel, compiler and embedded development I’d be doing that I didn’t stop to think that a three month notice period was a potentially bad thing.
