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
$COMPANY I wouldn’t have started there until around now. sigh
To put this in perspective; when I was offered the
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.
