I'm a developer about to take a new position, however the contract states the notice period on both sides in the event of leaving the company is 3 months.
I am wondering if I should ask to have this reduced to 1 month, if possible.
The role is not 'senior' in title but is in reality (my previous have been senior). The company is forming a new team to do some work that differs from the rest of the developers there.
I can see that if this project goes belly-up and we were to be made redundant, then 3 months notice is beneficial to me as an employee. However in the event I should want to leave, I don't believe most employers are happy to wait three months for somebody to join.
Is it worth asking for the notice period to be reduced? Or am I missing something, and 3 months is better for me in reality?
