find out if your company has a track record of giving decent severance packages. If they do? try to time your departure accordingly. It can be tricky, but I've pulled it off, and watched several other people pull it off too.

Severances are part of federal labor laws, so it's more of an eligibility question. A cursory look leads me to believe I won't be eligible unless they actually fire me, which doesn't seem likely as they can't fire without six months notice as I have an indefinite contract. Might be worth looking in to though.
