Re: [ljc] 3 months notice period - It has happened to me in the past too - making it a condition of the raise is sneaky but makes sense from the employer's perspective. From what I have seen it's fairly common for senior positions once you reach a certain level. Adrian W. May 3, 2013 12:50 PM
Re: [ljc] 3 months notice period - Richard Within financial services both the three month notice period and the change of terms with a promotion are common.

Re: [ljc] 3 months notice period - This is quite typical for more senior roles. It just means that your company believes you are an important and hard-to-replace asset. Congratulations!

Re: [ljc] 3 months notice period - Richard, Most places I've worked in have this type of thing, standard is 1 month notice then for more senior, or key roles or higher paid positions they also come with a longer notice period, usually 3 months but s John P. May 3, 2013 10:54 AM
